Just what we needed after a day on the Ben! Really good choice of food and drink served in a very informal and chalet style setting. At around £25 per head for a meal and drink ( with service) this seemed very good value to us and so much so that we went back the following night! Good to book... More

Excellent hearty food including some great Scottish dishes served in a great atmosphere by friendly staff. A varied menu with healthy sized portions. There is a good selection of regional ales also. Great after a hard day climbing the mountain. If you're staying at the nearby camp site or YHA youth hostel (only a short walk away) the inn is... More

Food & service were very good - I recommend the Balmoral Chicken. We went earlyish @ around 6.00pm & it was reasonably quiet so the service was really prompt but I noticed that service slowed considerably as the restaurant filled up. Very well presented venue & staff were very informative about the produce used, much of it local.

What a lovely place! It manages to be very friendly and welcoming, yet the food is quite fancy! Staff very pleasant and I would highly recommend one of the live music nights. The menu caters for all tastesin food and also suits a range of budgets.

Popped into the Ben Nevis Inn after climbing the Ben and was expecting to find a place full of expensive drinks, expensive meals and a complete tourist trap rip off. How wrong can you be. This place is excellent value for money and despite it's total monopoly on location has a good range of meals, and very fairly priced drinks.... More
