Last supper? Closing date of Castle Restaurant in Inverness revealed
AN apparent closing date for one of Inverness’s best-known eateries has been disclosed by a city councillor.
Inverness South member Duncan Macpherson told his social media followers that the Castle Street Restaurant will shut its doors for the last time – after more than 60 years – on Sunday, August 4.
The Highland News earlier reported the imminent closure of the cafe to make way for a new fish and chip shop to open on the site.
Afterwards, Cllr Macpherson said he had been told the date by a member of staff. “The response I’ve had on Facebook has been incredible, but the Castle Street Restaurant is a bit of an Inverness institution,” he said.
“There’s so much love for the place.”
However, despite his revelation, co-owner Katie MacKinnon, who bought the restaurant from the Lipton family in 2015, said reports of the date should be treated with caution.
“Nothing has been confirmed or clarified,” she insisted yesterday when contacted by the HN.
