Open since 1995, the simple cooking and warm, friendly atmosphere has allowed The Mustard Seed to become one of Inverness’s favourite restaurants. The Location on the banks of the River Ness in a converted church building is simply stunning and helps create the wonderful ambience.

The transformation from disused church to restaurant created a unique space; with a double-height ceiling and magnificent open log fire. Many of the original period features were retained and combined with a mix of natural and modern finishes. The addition of the terrace on the top floor allows alfresco dining and uninterrupted views of the River, another amazing asset for the restaurant.

“With its trendy glass frontage, 1930’s style lighting, bare surfaces & bold colours, this brasserie brings some sun tanned metropolitan fizz to northerly Inverness. Eye catching views of the river & ancient castle add to the thrill of eating here, while the kitchen adds plenty of global zing to well sourced
scottish ingredients” – The Good Food Guide ​

“In Inverness, Rocpool is arguably the best restaurant of its type, a vibrant eatery serving fresh, tasty food in a relaxed, stylish environment” – The List

“For some time now the consistently good place to eat in the centre” – Scotland the Best

“This buzzy contemporary brasserie operation capitalises on its corner site on the banks of the River Ness. The interior is a cool exercise in contemporary design flair featuring lots of wood and a décor of natural tones. On the menu is an appealing cast of crowd-pleasing modern European dishes built on top-class Scottish produce” – The 2 Rosettes
