The place, which looks mostly as an "alternative pub", is most suitable for those in the late 20's and early 30's. No problem about that, though. Typical pub decor and ambiance is poor. Live music, pool tables in a contiguous environment and a nice restaurant on the second floor, make the place friendly and enjoyable. The tables in the back... More

Good fresh food at a reasonable price. Had a very pleasant lunch in front of a lovely warm fire. Friendly staff and good welcome. Will use again.

Not bad but nothing special. Standard british pub food. Portion a bit small. Very nice setting, cosy pub. Good deal.

My friends and I visited the upstairs restaurant when we were touring in Fort William. We should have known what to expect when our starter arrived a couple of minutes after ordering and then the main courses came as soon as the starters were finished. All food, in our opinion, was pretty tasteless, microwaved and a couple of the main... More

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
