Visited here whilst on a road trip around the Highlands with friends. The beer was cool and the food excellent. The ambience was quite loud with the walking and climbing clientele who made up most of the patrons. Sadly we did not have the opportunity to take to the hills on this visit - maybe next time!

Beautiful food (literally perfect - for me anyway) at an affordable price. I went the night before I undertook my Ben Nevis trek, it set me up very well for the following day. Beautiful food in a fantastic environment... it was in a barn, can't get much better than that. I highly recommend the Ben Nevis Inn to anybody of... More

This is a great place for atmosphere, food and service! I ordered a casserole which was lovely and the waitress could not be any more helpful! The atmosphere is wonderful with all the excitement of climbers successfully climbing Ben Nevis. The atmosphere is again developed even better by the food being served in an old barn with old fashioned wooden... More

Sat outside with some very special friends and had a well deserved pint on return from the summit snowfields in late May. Very busy bar but good natured staff and typical walker/climber clientele who were sharing the convivial atmosphere, sunshine and midges. Hard to believe but some people frequent the Ben Nevis Inn without even a thought of walking up... More

Great food, great beer choice, (just wish you would do REAL cider:(( Great views of the footpath coming down from the Ben. Excellent service. Thanks for replacing the glass of wine I knocked over on the bar free of charge.

After spending 8 hrs on Ben Nevis, there's no better sight than the welcome of The Ben Nevis Inn. I'd been here twice before for drinks and food after walking up The Ben. The interior is warm, cosy and delightful. This time, unlike the others, the waitress was decidedly stroppy and not very welcoming at all. It all just looked... More

Excellent food in a stunning location. Delicious local food and excellent value for money. Very tasty Scottish lager beer! Very well worth a visit for just a drink or to eat.

We stayed for three nights at the bunk house under the inn for the purposes of climbing 'The Ben'. The bunkhouse was basic, as you'd expect, but was clean and comfortable, very good for the little we paid. However the crowning glory is the Inn above. The food was excellent, with the starters a particular highlight. The haggis, the smoked... More

The Ben Nevis Inn is set in a beautiful location. We were lucky enough to arrive on a sunny day with lovely weather. In side the stone building there are a number of tables. Down the middle of the room there are two long tables with benches either side. Multiple groups share the same table (spread down its full length)... More
