We went here on our first night in Fort William and were pleasantly surprised. The food was lovely, the service good and the atmosphere relaxed. There isn't much more to say other than go and visit.

Enjoyed a couple of cocktails here after eating elsewhere. Great service and something a little different to drink. Try the drumstick with lolly, even got given an extra one so no one felt left out 😉

Stopped here on our way to Loch Ness and ordered fish and chips, burger, salmon and the pie. Not all for me of course! There were four of us =] The beef inside was too salty, but the puff pastry lid was really puffy and flaky and a nice touch. The salmon was abit bland but was accompanied with a... More

We found this bar by accident. We (I'm afraid to say) were going to our favourite local which is near by for our meal but as it was a little later than normal, they were full and unable to accommodate us. We popped in and asked about a table and there was a wait but we were told what it... More

Good service, good food (macaroni cheese in Scotland definitely better than England), just a shame I couldn't get in the next night as it was full up!

We enjoyed dinner here on an overnight stay in Fort William. We were a party of 10 and we had advance reservations - good thing as the place was packed. Good variety on the menu and everyone in our party enjoyed their meal - our selections ranged from burgers to pasta to salmon. Portion sizes were good and everything was... More

Friendly staff. We wanted to have seafood tagliatelle but the tagliatelle machine was broken. We chose cajun salmon instead, it was a bit boring though. The wild boar burger is good.

Went to The Tavern for an early dinner as we had seen plenty of advertisement for it. We both had Steak Pie... Which was very good, however the mash let the meal down, a bit lumpy for our liking. The atmosphere was good, service wasn't the best and probably not the best value for money.
