You can enjoy a delicious dinner and maintain social distance when you choose from the 2 options below:
1. Dining in Eight on the River or Brasserie – available for all guests that have reserved a table – please reserve your table in advance contact Palace. Each table is available for 1hr 30 mins, after this time we ask you in advance to depart the table for the next guests. Due to social distancing measures both dining areas are not able to operate at full capacity hence the need for reservations and dining time limits. Link to Brasserie Dining Menu
2. Dining in your Room – we have carefully planned a new delicious Room Service Dinner menu to offer the freshest and best options from the Brasserie Menu. You can add drinks, wine or cocktails to your order and a team member will knock at your door and leave your dinner service tray outside your bedroom for you to collect. We will also bring dessert or cheese course to your room. Link to Brasserie Dining Menu.
Enjoy the contemporary Brasserie & Bar overlooking the River Ness, however in these times of social distancing there will be a little bit more space around you. You will find discreet Perspex screens installed in the Bar, this is a well-being precaution for guests and colleagues and friendly table service. If you are dropping by for a Coffee or Cocktail we will need your contact details which we will hold for 21 Days in line with government guidelines. You can also enjoy the full selection of drinks stocked in the Bar and they will be delivered to your room. Please note following updated Scottish Government measures for 9th -25th October all Alcoholic Beverage Service will be outside only or via room service.
We do hope this information provides you with reassurance that we are addressing the social distancing & safety requirements. Our aim is to deliver our normal friendly hospitality from a socially acceptable distance to you so that you can enjoy your stay here at the Palace. We hope by explaining this in advance, you can plan your choices making the most out of your time here at the Palace and in Inverness.
