Nice Pub!

Visiting from the U.S. and was so thrilled we stopped by at this bar. Barkeep was friendly. And there was real live music/people playing instruments! Truly a Scottish-feel-good-pub!

Had dinner at the Ben Nevis Bar and Restaurant on a Sunday. The staff are extremely friendly but not organised.. We were asked three times after we had ordered drinks whether we would like to order a drink and the same happened after we had ordered our meal. It looks like the staff do not have set tables to look... More

Visited here in May and was the first pub we went to. There was a nice balcony at the back overlooking the lake and was a lovely evening to enjoy a few beers. Good place and worth a visit

My husband and I went in for a meal and was not disappointed. The staff were nice and friendly. We chose the Fish and Chips and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Fish was lovely and fresh. Great views over the Loch and yes I would go back.

My boyfriend and I stumbled across this pub and were impressed. Many of the meals, including the ones we wanted, were on the 2 for £10 menu which was great value. There is a good choice of vegetarian options. Staff were friendly and there were great views over the loch. Ideal place if want good food and portions without spending... More
