Been to the Ben Nevis Inn several times in the recent past, thoroughly enjoyed each visit, meals served to a very high standard, ambience is bang on, nice attentive staff, well stocked bar. Well worth a visit, you will be more than impressed.

The Ben Nevis Inn offers meals that are far better than you might expect. The standard of their menu is very high and the service is excellent. Combined with this is the wonderful atmosphere of the ancient building which is kept cosy with a big log stove. I would give it 5 stars if it offered coffee and a cake... More

Visited in January and had a lovely meal. I had vegetarian haggis starter which was gorgeous. The inn is in a superb location at the bottom of the Ben nevis footpath. Good choice of beer and wine. Will definitely visit again.

Rang up to book (advisable) & enquired about gluten free for our coeliac daughter. On arrival 20 minutes later the staff had a menu marked up with gluten free food. And wow, the best presented gluten free food we have seen & eaten in a truly stunning setting.

Had a lovely meal and staff had written GF options on the menu for me which was great. Everyone in our party of 6 had a delicious meal and staff were excellent.

First night eating out in Fort Wiiliam was extremely disappointing, thankfully our second night out at The Ben Nevis Inn & Bunkhouse ticked all the boxes! Great food, ale and atmosphere after a long day on the hills for the walkers and my younger family and friends that had been skiing.Everyone had a great time even our 7 year old... More

We came here today after reading reviews on here. It was in a lovely location perfect for walkers. On arriving we were greeted by a very friendly and bubbly girl who was very helpful. We ordered coffee and then decided on a bite to eat. It was very tasty but we did think it was a bit on the pricey... More
