    I'd recommend The Indian Cottage:

    It's not really budget but the food's great.
    I've not been to the restaurants you mentioned.

    Thanks Kabie, I saw this in the Inverness Courier. A very small notice, but I recall there being one there before so it must be a good site. Does anyone know what time of year is busier. I did one a few years ago and it was quiet to say the least. I don't want to do that again lol!!

    As a previous car boot addict I have to say that the winter months are better for sellers, as long as the weather is good that is. I would however reccomend the dingwall car boot as it is under cover (if it is stiil running).

    I wonder if the move to the coop is related to it being much quieter or whether thier has been further conflict with the council/eden court over the use of the space.

    Hello to any local Inverness people :beer:

    ..... Have also been looking for any deals on 2for1 etc.... any ideas.

    We have a trip booked for Saturday with Jacobite on the Loch Ness (cannot wait :T )

    I am trying to do on a budget really, as this was a voucher given to us for helping my sister and BIL arrange their wedding last Sept. Voucher was a 2 night stay at Ramada. We could fly from Bristol with Easyjet pretty cheaply and have car hire.

    Many thanks in advance for any suggestions .... so looking forward to finally be visiting Scotland.

    Hugs, Shal. x[/qu

    I would reccomend Charlie Chan's for a good value meal which provides good value chineese buffet, and if you get the right seats you get a great view of the river
  • Going for three in a row here.... Focus are having a sale on tiles at the moment (as previously stated elsewhere in the forum), there appears to be quite a lot still left ( I m managed 15 boxes) no other significant signs of sales though

    Thanks in advance if anyone knows :cool:

    I don't think so! My Girlfriend and myself attained a lovely upset stomach accompanied by "the Squirts" 1 hour after eating a meal that was delivered from there! Classic textbook Food Hygene problem.

    Enviromental Health Officer took away the remains of the meal the next day!
    LET THEM HATE, AS LONG AS THEY FEAR

    Well, I just found this:

    Depending on the cause, you may start having symptoms hours to months after you eat contaminated food. The most common types of food poisoning cause symptoms in 30 minutes to 2 days. Some types of food poisoning by shellfish may take only a few minutes to cause symptoms.

    from here:

    http://www.med.umich.edu/1libr/aha/aha_foodpois_crs.htm

    I remember treating my sister-in-law to a meal somewhere here in the Highlands and after eating shellfish it took about 45 mins for her to start feeling queasy and then was dreadfully sick for hours afterwards. Anyway, judging by the above info it is quite possible for frag and his girlfriend to have been made ill from dodgy food/hygiene in that short space of time. :EasterBun

    Don't worry, I'm working on it! :p
