14 Bridge Street, Inverness IV1 1HD If you are looking for a dog friendly bar, that serves food in Inverness, then The Gellions Bar is the place to go. The staff are friendly, the menu is not extensive, but it’s good bar food.

We had our evening meal and a few drinks here when visiting Inverness on the North Coast 500. The Fish and Chips is recommended. Proper old school boozer.
