Nice cosey atmosphere and a pleasant drinking establishment. However, we were both disappointed with the meal we decided to have one night. Hunter's chicken was rubbery and served with carrott which didn't seem to compliment the taste.

A nice place to have a drink and, if you're lucky, listen to some live music. The food menu looked pretty good as well - maybe next time.

When we went in the friendly staff welcomed us and showed us to a table , we were the only people there which was... More

Nice cosy atmosphere in the lounge for lunch, had a great menu so high expectations but it was not to be. Staff were very disorientated had a long wait to order although two staff taking orders and another popping in and out to take food to customers. There were 7 tables so not overly busy. It took almost 15 minutes... More

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

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
