Recommended to me by a guy who'd remembered it from 20/30 years ago! And what a great recommendation. Central bar serving 6 real ales - three of them from Scotland including Red Skye and Spey Valley Sunshine on Keith. Good food too - I had a delicious Mac&Cheese. Friendly service. This is definitely the place to go - just a block or two away from the train station - if you're a real ale fan, and surprisingly quiet at lunch times.

My first visit to this bar and I was surprised to be the only customer around 1pm on Wednesday lunchtime. There was no obvious reason for the lack of trade as all was clean and tidy and with a choice of six ales. I chose a pint of An Teallach Ale from Wester Ross which was in fine condition and went down well. Unfortunately being a Sassenach from down south I don't often get to have any An Teallach beers but I have never had a bad one.
it's difficult to know how to rate this bar. Being the only customer there was obviously no atmosphere and I can only assume it comes to life in the evening. I will endeavour to check it out on my next trip to Inverness but that might not be any time soon.

Having watched this fine old boozer dying a slow and painful death over several years and having posted its obituary in December 2013 I was encouraged by canarly's post in April.

I returned on 15 August (and the next day). Thanks to George Sinclair the Phoenix has done what the Phoenix is supposed to do. It is risen!

It hasn't taken much more than a lick of paint, the installation of ten tall founts and the employment of friendly, knowledgeable and professional staff (as used to be found under the same ownership at the Clachnaharry and still is at the Castle Tavern). I sampled four ales, all in excellent condition.

I didn't eat, apart from the Friday early evening complimentary nibbles, but I did hear tell of a talented young chef.

I am disproportionately happy at this transformation!

Great news! The Phoenix ale house reopened early April. I was in last Sarurday , great refurbishment while retaining the ale house feel. 9 real ales on, 4 bar staff, busy for an early evening. Well recommended, owned by the Guvnr of the Castle Tavern would help to explain the turnaround.

The Phoenix is, to coin a phrase, 'knackered with a capital F'.

A month ago, Sunday mid-afternoon, there were three customers in. Four or more tall founts: no real ale. And no service because the barman was for some minutes in the cellar where changing the cider was too much for him. Voted with feet.

The place was shabby and down-at-heel. There was a large board outside offering it for sale at o/o £185,000 which is peanuts for a city centre place and no doubt reflects its trading success, or lack of it.

A great shame.
