About the Pub

Known in old charters as The Kings Highway to the North, Church Street was first referred to by that name in 1240. In Pevsner's guide, the site, at numbers 72-74, was built on about 1840. In 1860, the building was the Northern Hotel, and it became the Queen's Hotel in the 1880s/1890s. It acquired its last name - Cummings Hotel - from the family which owned it in the first half of the 20th century.

Situated centrally, Kings Highway has offered good value Wetherspoon fare since October 2001 and is a popular and busy Inverness meeting point, handy for the bus and train station.

By virtue of its previous incarnation, the bar area has separated seating areas and some quieter corners.

Up to 10 handpumps feature mainly Scottish beers, with many of them local to the area. Open from 7am for breakfast, before full bar service at 11:00 One of the few Wetherspoon’s which also has a hotel.

A recent addition is a wee decked area, with tables, accessed via a side door.
