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!

Went to this restaurant on Thursday evening. Ordered mushrooms provencale as a started. Have no idea what the restaurant was thinking as I was served a bowl of cold uncooked mushrooms with a bit of tomato sauce on top. Absolutely awful and tasteless and within half an hour of leaving the restaurant I had stomach ache and extremely unset tummy.... More

The fact that this restaurant was so busy on a September Thursday spoke volumes about how well it is liked by locals and tourists alike. I'd moved on from an alternative restaurant just around the corner as there was only one table occupied in that one, to find that the Old Station was a hive of activity. There is a... More

Old Station Restaurant food was excellent and the staff very helpful and then after your meal you have some good music in the bar at 9pm and some nights you see The Royal Scotsman Train it comes in to the station late at night. This will be a night to remember very good place to visit.

Pre booked here due to good reviews on tripadvisor prior to our Great Glen walk. Arrived 10 mins early and then had to sit for 3/4 hour for a table. One reason this appealed to us was reviews on real ales, only to be told they had none left. Meal was also disappointing with over cooked veg and average food.... More

Visited on a Saturday night. The place was very busy but the service was fantastic and the food excellent. I heartily recommend the salmon fettucine! It also has handpulled cask ales and a range of local bottled beers, with a small bar area if you don't want to eat. Well worth a visit.

The menu choices were good if not terribly inspired. The food was good though and my husband said his sirloin steak was excellent. The service was good although some of the younger staff were less "smiley". They were trying hard though and dealt well with the busy service.

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.
