Contemporary, new, cool cocktail bar and bistro, Ash, is a recent, and superb addition to the growing restaurant and dining out scene in Inverness. Ash Restaurant & Lounge Bar, a firm favourite with locals and visitors alike, is the ‘wide awake’ place to be! Enjoy a contemporary, fresh, yet classically styled dining room with Georgian influences, boasting a varied menu featuring many dishes inspired by traditional Scottish cuisine.
The food we had was really very nice. It's a shame the service was not as nice! We all thoroughly enjoyed our main courses. We did not enjoy the bizarrely rude attitude from the waitress. When ordering desserts one of our party asked for the Strawberry Shortbread Sundae (strawberry & vanilla ice cream, strawberry jam, shortbread,raspberry coulis, whipped cream & fresh strawberries), not cheap at £7.75. She wanted the sundae without shortbread or strawberry jam. The waitress told her she couldn't have the sundae without shortbread or jam. We were very surpirsed at the response and so appealed to the waitress, thinking maybe she would go and ask a manager or the kitchen but instead we were met with a very rude and abrupt "No you can't, you have to have what's on the menu!" We eat out a lot and I have worked in hospitality for over 20 years and I have never, ever, heard of a customer being told they cannot omit something from a dish. She was not asking for the dish to be made differently or to replace the items with anything else or even for a price reduction she merely did not want the shortbread or the jam. Surely your sundae's, at £7.75 each, are made to order? How difficult would it be to just leave off the shortbread and jam? As a result of the bizarre and extremely rude attitude of the waitress we decided not to order any other desserts. We also did not order tea/coffee.
We visited Ash recently and found it pleasant, food was lovely, staff very friendly and will return.
Have already sent an email, kids are still waiting on their ice cream 🍦
Nice surroundings, excellent food & service.
Ash is not a cool and contemporary cocktail bar. Dining on a Saturday night the place should of been buzzing instead it was dead, lacked any atmosphere, offering over priced mediocre food & drink. Avoid!
Outstanding bistro for good good and service. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit for lunch and will be back soon. The service team were great but your food is second to none. Thank you for a great visit.
Excellent meal, excellent service
Thoroughly enjoyed our evening, service attentive but not overbearing, I ordered lamb shank, would have liked to have been offered mint sauce/jelly, no condiments offered for any of meals. Otherwise excellent.
The staff had no knowledge of our online reservation, wasn’t in their diary but they did find a table for us. A mistake on the menu (the size of the bottle of beer included in the pre-theatre dinner) was not pointed out when we ordered it and was not honoured - the smaller size was served and the menu was not altered. So this will happen again. The food was all over cooked and the whisky sauce lacked any flavour of whisky. The staff were pleasant and helpful.
Great food, good prices. The waiting staff really seemed to have it together. They had loads of waiters for a small room and small amount of tables which made the service very quick, and the wait staff very attentive.
We really enjoyed our dining at Ash. The menu had something for all tastes. Staff were friendly and helpful. One slight issue was a group of guests beside our table were so noisy at times we couldnt hear wach other very well but thats not the fault of Ash.
Booked this based on website lunch/early dinner menu which stated served bet 1130 and 6pm. On arrival this menu was not available and according to person who appeared to be manager changed online the day before (not true as it is still online). The deal of 2 courses and drink was still good value, but Ash need to sort out what they have advertised on boards outside, online and within restaurant which all differ with the times available. The manager was also a bit confrontational when I questioned the deal.
Great meal and great value for money
Lovely venue, with great caring staff and very tasty food. Second time I have been and won't be the last. Will definitely be back. Great prices for food and good options on the menu.
the meal and service were very good but, towards the end of our time there the restaurant became very cold as if the heating was turned down or off. The ladies toilets were very cold and really not pleasant to use in that respect! Such a shame we would have stayed to enjoy more drinks but went off to find a warmer venue!
Great quality meal at a really competitive price served by a quality staff. Will certainly return and will also recommend to my friends and family.
Enjoyed our food but service became quite slow. Unfortunately an elderly gentleman vomited over a neighbouring table, the staff seemed at a loss as to what to do and made no attempt to apologise for the inconvenience to other diners.
The online booking process was simple. When we arrived the staff were fully aware of our booking and made us feel very welcome. The staff you served us at the table were very mannerly and professional - it was a very pleasant dining experience and the food was well presented and very tasty - portion size very acceptable and good value.
Fantastic service as always food is excellent with great choice very fast service nothing is too much trouble very friendly staff French Martinis are a dream will be back soon thanks
Had a lovely lunch on Saturday only complaint I have is that we felt rushed as the waitress was very keen & eager to take away our plates - even when we were still not quite finished
