About the Pub

Gellions is THE oldest pub in Inverness and dates back to 1841 and is named, as was the practice then, after the licencee who was a woman.

Gellions (pronounced "Gellons" by the locals) now has two bars, Monty's snug, and the Bridge Bar. Monty's Snug opens at 9 (no RA) and closes earlier than Bridge bar which remains open until closing time and has two hand pumps. Access to Monty's snug is via an alleyway to the right hand side of the front of the pub.

Many, many licencees ago (20+ years?) real ale was available, but the rumors of real ale returning have now been proven correct because at the beginning of August 2014 first one, then two hand pumps appeared in the Bridge Bar. Hopefully the number will increase - well there is no harm in wishes!

There is music every night starting at 9.30 Mon to Fri, but every Saturday and Sunday from 5.00 there is a Ceilidh with music from the resident Scottish folk band, "Schiehallion".

You know when one of the bosses is in because the Mini with "personal" plates - GE11ONS - is parked outside!

In the weeks leading up to Christmas, the pub offers a "creche" facility for the ladies to drop their other halves off whilst shopping!
