Description: At the Old Station Restaurant & Bar we offer great locally sourced food at reasonable prices. Dine in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, in the unique setting of a converted Victorian railway station on the world famous West Highland Line. We are located at Spean Bridge station where the Commandos began their training during the Second World War. Relax beside the fire in our public bar and enjoy local real ales. We are the only bar in the village serving real ale on draught. We also have a good selection of malt whisky and wine. Children are very welcome ... And we even have a special menu for the wee ones!

This is a lovely restuarant located at the train station, which is quite novel. When we visited the staff were great and the food very good. We had two lively children but the staff were great with them. I would highly recommend this place.

So disappointed that we didn't eat here, but didn't realise that in August most of the eateries I this location need reservations. Anyway - we returned later in the evening to try the selection of location ales, draft and in bottles. And taste a variety of the whisky on offer. Superb atmosphere in the small bar area. Great staff. Not... More

Dined here at the beginning of the month. Lovely ambience and definitely a trip down memory lane with railway age memorabilia dotted about. Small cheerful bar area and spacious dining tables. No music on the menu when we dined, but guessing it's a special evening when the musicians are in the house. Menu lovely and appealed to our range of... More

One of few restaurants in the village, I am pleased we dropped in for a beer before we hit the B&B as we reserved a table for dinner which is really needed in high season. A good range of food, freshly cooked and much locally sourced. Local beers stocked and they have their own "Commando" beer made for them by... More

The food was lovely and filling after a long day of hiking; the haggis parcels were particularly delicious. They have a great selection of local bottled beers. Reservations are recommended in summer. The dining area was pleasantly crowded for most of the evening. We got to meet with a few other travellers in the bar area before dinner, which made... More

The smoked salmon starter was delicious, the Pork steaks in a lovely sauce were lovely, my husband had the salmon pasta and he raved about it.... More

Nice restaurant on a special location. The station is still in use for trains passing by. The staff was good and also the food is good. Price is a little higher, but acceptable.

We didnt have a booking when we showed up so were unsure we would be able to eat but staff made room for us. We walked down from Distant Hills which wasnt far.
