Notice: Venues need your support more than ever during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

Under level three of the roadmap in Scotland, pubs can open indoor areas for food and non-alcoholic drinks, while alcohol can only be served in outdoor areas. Many pubs will only be open for customers who have pre-booked.

But please be aware that opening hours and services may be different to those displayed here. Before visiting or ordering from any venue, we strongly advise you to check its website or social media, or get in touch with them first to avoid disappointment.

If you see any details here that need updating, please let us know by submitting feedback on the pub.

About the Pub

This is a "seasonal" paragraph - during the "quieter" months, between October and March, Lauders does not have real ale.

Lauders claims it is the "Friendliest Pub in Inverness", and the H&WI branch would welcome that you test that assertion.

Whilst it may have had a "dubious past" under previous PubCos in the "noughties", since 2014 Stonegate have turned Lauders round from the "boozer" reputation it had to a must visit "wet" pub.

No food other than "nibbles" available.

Inside more than 10 screen show sports in the high ceiling "L" shaped bar which has a mixture of high and low table seating, and displays of painted kegs at high level.

Situated on Church Street at the corner of Baron Taylor's Street, the pleasant (real) floral displays reflect the congenial atmosphere inside.

Probably, the best "value" real ale in Inverness, and for CAMRA members an additional 50p off a pint using the Real Ale Discount Scheme vouchers.

Watch out for the revolving door (only one at a time please!) seems to run on greased bearings - easy to get in, but unlikely to be tested that hard on leaving - if you want to leave at all!
