Wow what a spot for an inn - right at the start/finish of a trail to the summit of Ben Nevis. The food here is really good but what makes it so special are the views and the atmosphere - outstanding.

There is a great atmosphere here. The food is excellent and there is always a different selection of Scottish beers, which really hit the spot. It has a great location at the foot of the Ben. All the staff are very friendly and very efficient. A must when visiting Fort William. An added bonus was live music from Miss Irenie... More

After trekking up and down the big Ben Nevis, starved and achy we decided to eat at this wonderful place. Unfortunately, they were already fully booked which is testament to how well established they are and how popular the food is. We had a drink, booked for the following night and it didn't disappoint! The food was absolutely delicious. I... More

A sound country pub restaurant. Very busy and good atmosphere. The food was fine. Very limited choice of wine.

Based upon a recommendation, I made a reservation (for 8pm) at the Ben Nevis Inn some months prior for us to have a 'celebratory' meal after completing the West Highland Way. I then telephoned from our Hotel In Fort William to ensure the reservation still stood - it did - and asked if we could come along at 7.30 instead... More

We were both dead shattered after our adventure up Ben Nevis and needed some grub. The Ben Nevis Inn were very accommodating and incredibly helpful managing to squeeze us in without a reservation. They also served crabbies which was exactly what I needed! It had a great feel about the place and if we ever venture back to Fort William... More

We had supper here our first night in fort William, because we were hungry and it was close. But we were happy with the results. The inside and outside are very rustic, but it is clean and the food delish. My brother and son claim the hamburger the Ben is the best burger they have ever eaten!! So I can... More
