Excellent Location

This is the best location I have seen so far. Nice little Inn with the stunning view and nature. One advise is to reserving table before going. Its always crowded.

Nice high street pub - well decorated. Regardless of this review this remains a better choice (for me) than JD Wetherspoon! Food order was wrong when it came out but was politely remedied. My meal came as my pal was finishing up but no big deal. Staff pleasant and good fun. Prices fine. Good front deck overlooking Loch, if the... More

Excellent food with great atmosphere and stunning views. In our family's opinion the best restaurant in Fort William. Great food served by friendly and welcome staff. Good choice of kids menu too. Don't forget the Specials board either. Can get busy during the walking season so best book.

This is a magic little spot which combines a world-class view of Ben Nevis with a quaint little building where quality food and drinks and deserts are served. We will be back!

We have dined here on several occasions, when passing thru' Fort William, never fails to please. The service, atmosphere and food are superb, every time. You certainly won't leave here hungry. Best to pre-book. If you're a group of six.......ask for the table at the window......you possibly won't eat for admiring the view.

Knowing the fab reputation of this inn we pre-booked. We were calling at Fort William on our way to the Isle of Skye and were hoping to get a walk up Ben Nevis. The weather was perfect and parking up at the car park we could spot both the Inn and the mountain after which it is named. We walked... More

Lovely setting at the start of your hike to Ben Nevin. The scenery is beautiful through the large windows as you have your food. You eat surrounded by hillwalkers and casual visitors creating a good atmosphere. The staff are friendly and helpful. The food is wholesome and tasty and I enjoyed my dinner and would return when I visit Fort... More
