Reasonably priced and hefty portions at the Fluke. The recently introduced new menu is pretty similar to the old one.

Had to wait approximately 40 minutes for our starter. Main was a disappointment as I was expecting 'Pork Loin stuffed with sage and onion' but there was no stuffing, the vegetables were cold and carrots were black. There was only one waitress on and I could see she was getting very stressed out. Good value for money but don't expect... More

We headed along after work as the pub restaurant is conveniently located next to Raigmore Restaurant. The menu is pretty large with typical pub grub food. Dinners are cheap (£5-7 approximately) and the food was decent so we had no complaints! The halloumi fajitas and halloumi burger looked particularly nice so I will probably order these next time around.

This is a nice neighborhood pub around the corner from the Kingsmill Hotel where we stayed. Every place we tried at 7pm on Saturday night was booked. This was the only place the concierge could find within walking distance. Their menus resemble those of Denny's so we were a bit skeptical. And, you know what? It was pretty darn good.... More

We were heading for Eden Court and had planned to eat near there. On impulse we stopped at the Fluke. A good decision. There was a good range of options on the menu and the prices were extremely good. I doubt if there is a cheaper steak in Inverness. The bar and restaurant area was very busy and we were... More

Ok for pub grub, reasonable prices for what you get. Had the surf and turf, the steak was a little tasteless but at the price paid wasn't expecting a melt in the mouth experience.

The pub quiz in particular is a hoot. Good for watching the fitba, a game of pool or a cheap but quality dinner. Great joint not central but close enough to town
