Bringing some Scottish charm to Inverness’s Church Street, Hootananny is a traditional pub and live music venue, a long standing fixture in the city. Whether you’re after a cosy location to indulge in a pub lunch, or looking to spend a lively evening dancing to traditional Scottish music, Hootananny is the place to go, equally as popular with locals as it is with visitors to Inverness. Tuck into British classics like the beef and Red Kite ale pie, north Sea haddock with chips, and the haggis, neeps and tatties with a whisky sauce, or pair your pint with a pub food favourite like the homemade beefburger. To guarantee a table at this buzzing bar and restaurant in the city centre, booking in advance is recommended.
Great night with North Sea Gas as the live band. Band starts playing at 21.30 so plenty of time to eat beforehand. It's advisable to book a table in good time as the Hootananny fills up quickly on a Saturday night. Staff were very helpful and service minded and the food was prepared to a good standard. We had the Sirloin Steak which was cooked to perfection and the Red Kite beef and ale pie which was very tasty too. Good selection of beers in the bar. The whole evening was a wonderful Scottish experience but would not recommend to take young children to the evening sessions. A bit rough around the edges but hey, that's what it's all about. A typical Scottish live music pub evening with everybody joining in.
