Nice food, great view

Food very nice with lovely views across the water. The staff very attentive and friendly, only complaint was quite a long wait for food, 40 minutes. To be fair it was lovely and fresh and restaurant was pretty full.

Went here with family. I ordered steak, sent it back because it was undercooked, and consisted of about 40% fat. Got another, looked a nicer piece then I cut it and was even more rare than the first one! None of the 7 main meals were very nice. I ended up with a cool chicken curry. Sweets were just so... More

Had a good few nights in this pub. Good banrer and good food. I prefer the range of whiskeys they have and the decking area around the back. Staff are all really nice as well. X

Walked the length of Fort William's High St looking for a lunch venue before settling on 'The Munro', upstairs at the Ben Nevis Bar. Very pleased with our decision. The room had a refined though cosy feel with plenty of local atmosphere, seats decorated in tartan trim, a fine patterned ceiling, and hunting trophies and moody mountaining photos hanging from...

dont go here if you're in a rush!!! We went here on a Sunday evening after seeing that they did a Sunday Roast but were sorely disappointed. We waited almost 15 mins after sitting down before managing to catch the waitress to take our drinks order and we should have known at that point to bail out, as others were... More

We ate here as a group of 14. The upstairs restaurant was packed and there was a great atmosphere. We ordered from the "2 for £10" menu. My Fish and chips were great, freshly cooked and nothing to complain about. Unfortunately two of our party had ordered Beefburgers and it was explained that they had been ordered incorrectly by the... More

Salmon completely dried out, Caesar's salad not eatable (chicken dried out no dressing, no cheese in it...) they serve a second one - and - surprise this one is ok. Cabernet sauvignon is awful. Excellent service though.

My partner had sausage and mash while I had the mixed grill. Both were fine, but no more than that. The staff were very friendly though and there are great views across the loch if you book in advance to get a table on that side.

My partner and u decided to visit Fort William as it is recommended by guides. We wanted to have some food in a traditional pub. First we waited 40minutes to get our food and it wasn't even what we ordered! Then we had our steaks which were of a very low quality. Really bad! we then got our desserts which... More
