Stopped here for a lunch, with frankly low expectations having suffered hotel food elsewhere. Nothing sensational but a good choice and when our food came it was well presented and tasted fine. The staff were pleasant and I didn't have any problem with the "dated" look mentioned by others but then I can't say I took much notice. Not perhaps... More

The decor is dated, the menu is boring, food is average. We are usually not fussy, but wouldn't go back unless everything else is closed and you just need to fill in your stomach... Not an experience

All that can be said is that there standard of service was appalling! The actual food was fine, but very much spoilt by the length of time waiting to receive it.

Went for dinner. The steaks were ok but were disappointed that they just came with a Florette (out of a bag) salad and the onion marmalade was far too sweet to be on a steak. And that the chunky chips weren't actually home-made. The staff were all very friendly and helpful when you could get their attention - not their... More

Food and service was very good but although we used it 3 times we could have appreciated a menu change. But that apart for a stranger visiting Fort William it gave a very good impression.

Went in here looking for dinner on a night in Fort William. This place looked ok from the outside and seemed appealing being attached to the hotel. There is an extensive menu with good choice. We had the seafood chowder and stuffed mushrooms to start. Good portions and all very tasty. We had the steak/ale pie and lasagne as mains.... More
