Love going here for a meal and pint of beer after a long walk. The barn still retains its character and the atmosphere is really good on a busy night! Great choice of food and the staff are really friendly and efficient.

There are 2 showers and toilet's and sinks and its shared by everybody, male and female. It was a bit cold so we slept with cloths on. Unfortunately its directly under the... More

The atmosphere was great and when some of the locals got out there guitars, it made for a great night. Also the drive up /... More

The staff were friendly, service good and food delicious. Defo worth a visit. If just for a drink, snack, full blown meal or a night out.

Have been here multiple times and will continue to go back. The location of the restaurant/pub is great (perfect if you are coming off the Ben, a little more off the beaten track if you are in town), and it's a lovely little building with stone walls and exposed beams. There is a decent selection of food and having tried... More

Had a family meal whilst visiting Fort William and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal and time at the Ben Nevis Inn. The view from the front of the restaurant is fantastic and adds to the ambience of the restaurant. The staff I found to be very attentive and the service was very efficient Definately worth a visit, especially if you... More

My experience failed to live up to the tripadvisor hype. The inn itself was quite difficult to find, a direction sign at the spar wouldn't go amiss! Inside, it was gorgeous and very cosy, despite the it's size, with lots of Ben Nevis photography by a local photographer. Unfortunately, the food was quite disappointing. The soup starter was nice. However,... More

After a wet walk up and down Ben Nevis this is just what you need. A warm welcoming pub with traditional whiskeys. Big long tables and a wood burner. You must visit after a days walking

The food and atmosphere is excellent. Spend a day round the mountains and eat here afterwards, gets very busy so be patient its worth it.
