Visited on 29th October 2016. Situated in the city centre decided to pop in here as on the way to next venue. Bagged a table on the stage as place was busy, musicians were starting to set up around us, it’s an odd place with a lot of wood and a traditional music venue vibe. Beer range was OK with a couple on from Black Isle. Beer in decent condition and prices OK. Probably the least interesting place in Inverness.

We’ve arrived pretty late in Inverness so rest of the pubs were closed. In the end Hootananny was a good choice. They had 3 or 4 ales from Black Isle and live Scottish music which kept us entertained for hour or two.

Visited on a Friday evening in October 2013 around 7.30pm. Centrally located on Church St, the place was pretty busy and there were no tables free, quite a few seemingly reserved for diners. The place had more of a restaurant feel to it than a bar. 4 Black Isle beers on tap, 2 cask, 2 keg which was the main draw for me, condition of the cask offerings was fine. Pretty much a quick in and out stop to tick some Black Isle for me. Food looked good, would probably eat here on another visit. No "go to" but if you’re in the Ness for a few nights you’ll no doubt get chance to pop in.

Large town centre venue, popular for Scottish music get together’s. Can be quite touristy, particularly as they seem to welcome coachfulls at a time, but I think the music is genuinely authentic with musicians meeting up and having a good time. It appeared to be all keg on our visits and the food is now more authentically local. We spent both evenings in there and thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere. Good.

I stopped past here as Hootananny is mentioned on the Black Isle brewery tour flyer as an outpost for their beer. Hootananny is a bar known for having traditional Scottish live music on every evening and ceilidhs and such. Inside the decor is slightly garish (bright red walls and green columns....) and pretty grubby after years of people spilling drinks everywhere. Beer wise there are 6 taps of interest - 2 cask and 4 keg dispensing Black Isle beers, including at least one of the higher ABV offerings. They also have a thai food menu, which I find rather unfitting to the place as a whole. Not really my sort of venue, useful if you want to try some Black Isle in Inverness, but I wouldn’t return.
