There was a group of us staying in Fort William overnight and a few of the group had been here a year ago so we decided to go back. When we arrived we were seated straight away at a nice large set of tables with plenty of room for 9 people. Our drinks and food order was taken promptly but... More

A really busy restaurant/pub, but we had great service from Ann and the team from the moment we arrived. Food was delicious, prompt and value for money. We will definitely be back!

For the prices charged the quality of the food was excellent and the portions were sizeable to put it mildly coupled with good service. We ate there on both evenings we were at Fort William

So hats off to the Ben Nevis for have the space and the turnover of tables to be able to take us with only a 15 minute wait. The food... More

Situated in the town centre, the restaurant and external seating area overlook the Loch. Good range of food on the menu and is sensibly priced.

The Ben Nevis bar has been very friendly to us. We wanted to watch the Wimbledon quarters ther and were welcomed with open arms. We let the staff choose a nice beer for us, and they served us some tasty ones. The bar is nicely decorated and feels like home. After the game we went upstairs to get something to... More

We were very lucky with the weather and were even able to sin on the terrace with the view to the lake and enjoy our drinks. The restaurant was also very nice - friendly staff, the food was much better compared to the traditional pub food. Great atmosphere and lovely views! Definitely recommended!

Very busy when we got there but they advised us that most of the people were waiting for tables in restaurant upstairs which was also very popular. Got a seat on a beautiful comfy sofa and were joined... More
