A Very Popular Inverness Theme and Wine Bar

At Royal Highland Hotel we want you to relax and unwind on your visit. Why not join us for a drink or two in the contemporary, informal, cool and trendy surrounds of our comfortable hotel cafe bar and restaurant adjoining the Gallery Cafe. Open all day every day to hotel rsidents, expect a discerning non-resident trade too. Delicious meals served till very late. The pale green walls and gilt-framed oil paintings of the Victorian dining room are freshened by tartan table runners and bright flowers, creating a bright contemporary elegance.

And whether your favourite tipple is simply a coffee or you’d prefer a chilled glass of wine or a continental or British beer or lager we have something to whet your whistle in our superbly stocked bar. A comprehensive selection of beers, wines, spirits, cocktails and non-alcoholic hot and cold beverages is always available. If you feel a little peckish we offer a selection of nibbles to keep you going too.

After a day’s sightseeing in Inverness and the surrounding area, or perhaps at the end of your business meeting in Inverness, Ash Bar, or the Gallery Cafe which it serves too, are perfect places to relax and chill out, perhaps before dinner, visiting Inverness theatre and cinemas, or attending a great show or concert. And expect it to be there for you on your return, ready to serve soothing nightcaps and late night beverages.

A perfect accompaniment to every meal is a fine wine, and at Ash Bar and Restaurant, we pride ourselves on possessing an excellent wine cellar to accompany our delicious cuisine, or as a standalone drink. Our extensive wine list is carefully chosen from some of the best vineyards from what is considered the New and Old Worlds of wine. Whether it is a traditional favourite such as Chablis from France, or a fruity Shiraz from Australia, we are sure you will find something to please! And Each month, Ash Restaurant selects one of its wines as a feature of the month.

Some lovely house wines are always available by the glass or bottle too.

Malt whiskies and fine liqueurs here come virtually ‘as standard’ as you would expect -  and a ‘more than a dash’ good collection there is too.
