Lovely deck at rear overlooking Loch linnhe, but small. Inside was a bit dark and uninviting but seemed to attract small clientele. Large toilet area.

We enjoyed a good meal in here which is one of the few nice restaurants in Fort William with a view over the loch. Would recommend it.

While we waited for our table, we sat on the deck overlooking the loch, with a bottle of wine. After a short wait, we were shown to our table. I asked Darren, our "perfect" waiter, whether I should have the Chicken or the Fish Pie. He didn't blink or pause before recommending the Fish Pie. I wanted my order customized... More

Loved it all. The staff, the meal, the atmosphere and the banter. The meal was out of this world and I can only suggest you go and try it for yourself. We were in a group of six and we were all of the same opinion. It's unlikely we'll eat anywhere else on our next visit to Fort William. *... More

Friendly service. Great view over the loch. Nice food. Clean restrooms. Probably the best pub in Fort William.

We had our dinner here on Thursday 28th August, after completely missing the sign that the restaurant was upstairs, and ended up in the bar - we were politely informed that we really needed to be upstairs if we wanted food. Once seated, the waitress informed us that everything was made to order ( and therefore fresh) she left with... More

We sat 20 minutes, every waiter were running around us, ignoring us. Clients around looked exasperated. We left before ordering anything there

Recently visited planning on having lunch and drinks with friends. Entered pub, sat down at table and one of our party went to the bar. No bar staff, waited over 5 minutes before anyone appeared by which point we had decided not to eat here as there were no menus/anything to suggest we could eat here. One friend went to... More

My veggie burger was the best I've ever eaten. The staff was friendly and still low keyed.The restaurant is conveniently located on the main street in Fort William, and had views of Loch Linney form both bar and the upstairs restaurant.

Maybe it was that we arrived in the middle of the afternoon just for drinks... but we sat in the bar for so long that we finally went across the street rather than search for a bar tender... we returned one evening for a light dinner and found the upstairs empty and the bar/restaurant smelly... not very appetizing... we left...
