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, Scottish gins and wine. We have a gluten-free menu which is available on request. Children are very welcome ... And we even have a special menu for the wee ones!

This old rail station now a diner servers original Scottish meals. The chicken stuffed with haggis to our surprise was delicious. Our lamb dinner and fish and chips were also excellent. Our service was excellent as well. A great place to eat in this area

Ate last night at The Old Station Restaurant in Spean Bridge, which is next to the working railway - the Caledonian Sleeper passed our window seats during the evening! Great room with lots of railway photographs connected to the station. Enjoyed a friendly drink in the bar before dinner. We were pleased we'd booked earlier in the day as potential... More

We had a super meal in the Old Station Restaurant. The attention to detail of the meal was first class. The restaurant itself was set as it should look as an old railway station albeit the line is still used.

My husband and I had dinner at The Old Station. We were greeted by a friendly you woman who had us wait for our table in the bar. We each had a pint of their house ale--it's much tastier than a lot of draught ales that I've tasted in Scotland. Once seated in the dining room, my husband ordered the... More

The chef is a genius in the kitchen, creating fine dining quality food as fast as any fast food outlet! The prices are reasonable, the dining area is comfortable, the staff are... More

We had dinner here... while walking the great glen way. The food is good and the staff is very friendly. The place appears to be quite popular as it was almost full on a weekday and we had to book our table an hour in advance. While you are waiting for your food you can entertain yourself with the notices... More
