Stopped here twice for lunch and was not disappointed, not pretentious but great food and nice atmosphere, very helpful staff and fantastic views outside. Seems to be advertising lots of events and live music - will be back.

Stopped off for a light lunch in the walkers bar, years since I have been here. Dog welcome, great range of real ales, really good, exceptional. Soup was home made and tasty and the veggie haggis was delicious. The location is immense and can't wait to return

We visited this pub having been some years ago for lunch and wished to sample the evening menu and the live entertainment. The latter was superb. The food, however, was very mediocre. None of it was homemade, really very average for the prices we paid. This pub has such great potential but is let down by food. Toilets need a... More

Visited here today (public bar area) with friends and had food, I hasten to add I have dropped by this place for years and have always found the place to be great! Toilets were filthy - no soap in the men's and didn't look like it had been recently cleaned. In summary the food was average, soup luke warm, small... More

We stopped on the way to our New Year break and had venison and a burger. Simple stuff but a proper burger with a real BBQ taste and proper chunks of venison both with crisp chips. Salad was a bit of a sorry affair with just a few rocket leaves. LOTS of beer to choose from as this was just... More

After a long day traveling from the Isle of Lewis, it was nice to have good pub grub for supper. I had the steak and ale pie with veg (carrots & neeps and red cabbage) and chips and Doug had the boar burger with chips and salad. It's a pub - so what if you have to go place your... More

Enjoyed our meal here in the relaxed atmosphere of the bar. The only downside for us was having to drive to get there. Having initially fancied fish, I was glad to find it was sold out as I was advised by the barman it's frozen & the worst thing on the menu. Enjoyed some lovely fresh salmon instead!

Place was quite quiet all night but despite that the staff didn't clear our tables of glasses once in the four hours we sat there. You order food at the bar then have to go up to pick it up, after you finish you sit with the dirty plates on the table til it gets too much and you clear... More

After a few brief visits passing through in the past i was looking forward to visiting Glencoe for a week and staying here allowing us the opportunity to have a meal and drink at the Clachaig - even though my partner was dubious on previous experience of the inn. So, this evening we headed down. After arriving at the bar... More
