Bandstand Restaurant is one of the finest locations in Nairn from which to appreciate the beauties of Nairn beach and the Moray Firth. With large windows along the entire length of the restaurant, diners enjoy a spectacular, uninterrupted sea view and with a little luck, spot the native Bottlenose Dolphins swimming offshore.
The restaurant décor reflects the character of nearby Fishertown. Period photographs of Nairn fishing port adorn the walls along with local memorabilia. The atmosphere and service is friendly and informal.
There is a range of menus to suit all tastes. Dishes are freshly prepared from locally sourced produce. There is a wide selection of mouth-watering dishes on our Lunch and Dinner Menus as well as our very popular Friday Steak Night and Sunday Carvery. We also include a wide choice of Gluten Free and Vegetarian dishes. We hope there is something to suit all tastes, but we are happy to vary our dishes to suit your dietary needs.
Wherever possible, our products are locally sourced and seasonal. We would like to thank our local suppliers for their support in providing us with consistently high quality products - Butcher meat - Bruce Clark, Nairn, Eggs - Highland Eggs, Ardersier, Vegetables - Swansons greengrocer, Nairn and Fish – Highland Fish, Inverness.
Unknown to us, we recently had a visit from a secret shopper which resulted in high praise in the North of Scotland's leading newspaper, The Press and Journal. To read the full article click here.
