Our style is industrial prohibition with a splash of steampunk thrown in for good measure. Find us on Queensgate and enjoy craft beers, vintage cocktails & some incredible comfort food!

Let us transport you to the speak-easy world of 1920's Chicago. Where the streets were ruled by unrelenting gangsters, and the drinks were inspired by the minds of geniuses. Scotch & Rye is our homage to the hard working, harder drinking people of that era, delivering our signature New York & Chicago inspired burgers and home-cookin', all washed down with great craft brews, unique (and award-winning) cocktail creations and a service team with an unmatched personality! We are also a dog-friendly bar! All well-behaved dogs are most welcome at Scotch & Rye.

Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult and vacate the premises by 10 pm.*
*Table with under 18s must book in for a meal and all be eating.

We look forward to hosting your safe, enjoyable dining & drinking experience.

    we are long term fans of scotch & rye and travel here about twice a month for dinner. Last night we waited 20 mins for a drink order, then 45 mins to even place a food order. Waitress said she would try and put order through when she could. We were sat at our table at 7pm and by 8.20 were still sitting having eaten nothing. We had come up for bottomless wings and were told we could only order one plate at a time. The kitchen shuts at 8.45 so there was no point in us staying as we would have gotten 1 plate of wings in the timeframe left. Staff are so nice in here but I was a little surprised that they asked us to pay for the 2 half drunk cokes we had considering we had sat for 90 mins at this point with no food. I feel sad leaving a negative review as normally our favourite but think we will leave it a while before trying again. Appreciate staffing shortages and how hard everyone was actually working. Just ruined date night, wish someone had said that we couldn’t get food and we would have just thanked them and went elsewhere.

    Badly prepared american menu items. The table lacked silverware and napkins and no one brought them to us when the meals cam. Had to request. Staff seemed more interested in chatting with each other than providing service.

    Absolute lovely atmosphere. Was attended to by multiple staff and they had a few people working which meant there was someone checking in and we didn't wait to order. All the staff were fantastic. The food was very nice and the cocktails even better, with plenty of options for a decent price too. Definitely will be back when I'm around in Inverness.

    We had the best experience at S&R, Sam was a very attentive waiter and managed to get me a customised drink, the bartender never heard of before. The food was great and we enjoyed the nice venue for two hours ordering another round of drinks as it was too cosy to leave. Excellent value for money, can only recommend.

    We came with our young child aged 5 for an early dinner and had a brilliant time. The food was great - the onion and garlic fries were so good, my ended up having another portion for dessert! And the cocktail menu was clearly devised by someone who really knows what they’re doing. The Bourbon Banana Split was the stuff dreams are made of! More than all of this, however, was how truly lovely every member of staff was, helpful, considerate and genuine, and made a real effort to engage with our child to make sure he had what he wanted. They made the whole experience a real pleasure. Would 100% recommend.
