Needing somewhere to eat on a very quiet Sunday evening due to the awful weather in what is a very small town we came across this friendly looking pub/hotel. we entered as they were showing Sky sports so at least we had something to do as well as eat. Service was good for the drinks but not quite as good... More

Me and a party of 4 friends dined here last night on the offchance, We were in Fort William for the night and decided to look and see what was on offer, apart from The Grog & gruel this looked like the only decent place in town, unfortunately what we found was a fairly nice pub serving grossly under seasoned...

The review title is lifted directly from the front cover of the menu, with my own interpretation of what that really means. You know you should run away when you are informed that the dish you have just ordered is no longer available because they are introducing a new menu and are no longer ordering in anything they run out...

I dined here one night with my gf, who is ukrainian. Whilst the food was very good, and the surroundings were nice also. The biggest issue was in that, regardless of what my gf asked for, it was totally ignored. It got to the stage that one woman, wouldn't even look at her, but turned to me to ask everything.... More

Though a bit tricky to find in the dark by car, it is definitely worth it. We had the roasted pork loin special; best pork dish we had during our stay in Scotland. Plenty of good beer choices (and not pricey) and fantastic atmosphere; love the lodge feel. Shared tables are great and you can meet people from all over... More

Three of us went into the restaurant for an evening meal with drinks on a Wednesday evening. There was nobody to greet new customers at the door and a short queue soon built up. After what seemed like 10 minutes we were acknowledged and invited to sit at any table, the first of which was uncleared from a previous meal.... More

We had a few beers in the bar and sat out on the veranda overlooking the loch. Then went off for a meal and came back for some Ardbeg and a relax in the big comfy chairs. The staff were friendly and knew their whiskey both bars were nice and lively
