Alright, nothing fantastic.

Out for the day stopped off here for food. Menu had a good choice to choose from. Got the steak & ale pie with sweet potatoe fries, my partner got the lasagne. Average food.

Started out on the decked area at the rear of building but moved into the bar after it started to get a bit chilly outside. We checked if it was ok to come in with our dogs & were told that would not be a problem. On entering the bar we were told that four dogs were fine but the... More

Having visited the Ben Nevis Bar and Restaurant last year with a group of 3 Peakers, and not actual eat, I took my family here for an early evening meal on a Thursday night. The staff were polite, the food very good and we had views over Loch Linnhe. I would recommend this to other visitors.

Dog friendly in the bar only, but food is only served upstairs and in the lounge bar. They kindly let me eat in the bar, as I and the dog were drenched. Choice of upright wooden chairs and arm chairs. All with comfy padded tartan seats. Roaring wood burner going, which was nice. Very friendly staff. You have to go... More

Been visiting this pub now for almost 40 years. Great history for climbers who have called and had a beer here. Great fish and chips.

This place came recommended by a guy out of Edinburgh. The atmosphere was authentic but the place was dead and the food was mediocre at best. There were two table in the entire restaurant and the waitress managed to get an order wrong at each table as well as mess up our bill. How a Scot makes borderline bad cottage... More

We found the establishment very friendly, as were all the people in the Scottish shops etc. we visited. The time was the end of March 2015. Not many people about. Any two meals for £10.00 was we felt a good bargain. Meals to suit your budget, no one needs to go hungry at this restaurant. Nice original decor and warm... More

Whilst visiting Fort William, we were rather peckish so decided to find somewhere to eat for tea, we scoured the high street and although there were plenty of places to choose between we decided to try The Ben Nevis Bar and restaurant, upon entering we were greeted with a friendly smile, by a fellow English man (which was a bit...
