Inver is a small, characterful restaurant on the shores of Loch Fyne, on Scotland’s west coast.

In the evening we serve a fixed, four course menu. Using current cooking techniques and the very best local wild and farmed ingredients we offer a contemporary take on traditional and forgotten Scottish dishes.

Our a la carte dinner and lunch menus feature simply prepared fresh seafood and native meat and game in season. We have a cosy bar serving craft ale, natural wine and fancy drinks. Our coffee is roasted nearby and served morning and afternoon with our scones, cakes and cookies. There’s also a small shop selling our own sourdough bread, cultured butter and preserves and our own beer, brewed with friends at nearby Fyne Ales.

Pam and Rob took over in spring 2015 and with their friends and family have built the sort of place they like to spend time. We hope that you will too.
