My husband and I recently went to the Tavern when we were staying in Fort William for the weekend. There was a live band playing while we ate and I had a nice cocktail with my dinner. The food was good and wasn't expensive compared to other places in town, so was pretty much what we were hoping for. The... More

My husband had steak pie and I had fish and chips. He enjoyed his food very much, and the fish and chips were great too. Be warned, there are bones in it. I don't eat fish very often so they caught me off guard (and it's 1 giant piece of fish, not little planks). We had some kind of bread... More

We ate here twice, both meals tasty and hearty, with our highlights being the cullen skink and the pea and ham soup. On both nights it was busy, and we happily waited at the bar taking in the atmosphere for a short while before a table became available. On one night they had some great live folk music, which enhanced... More

We had some beers after a dry ride from Glasgow and enjoyed the ambiance of this place but did not consider it for a meal since the menu didn't really appeal to us to return... the crowd was pleasant and friendly...

Our last night in Fort William, town was extremely busy and we had to wait on a table but the wait was well worth it. Food was excellent and service exceptional. Would highly recommend if visiting Fort William.

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 😉

after being in a hotel and treated like idiots and ignored etc we went in here and had barely stepped in doorway towards a table and straight away a very friendly girl approached and offered to bring drinks for us direct to our table and asked did we want a menu for a meal etc and such a refreshing change...

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
