We all had starters and mains and not one of us had a single complaint with the food. The fajitas in particular were the best I've ever had - gigantic portions served... More

The staff worked with me to find something suitable for my allergies, and I was very thankful for their effort! I had a lovely warm meal, which was served quickly and piping hot. I'd gladly go back.

We stopped in Fort William for a moment on our travels, and had lunch in this charming establishment. The food was excellent,( I had a tasty order of Fish and Chips), but the highlight was the scrumptious dessert! Excellent service as well.
