“Superb!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Had a lunch meal yesterday (tuesday) and despite a crowd of thirsty and hungry bikers in front of us we were served very quickly. The food presentation was outstanding and the food was fresh, very tasty and great value for money. Highly recommended and will be back soon.

“Great place to end a walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We had dinner here after walking 23 miles of the West Highland Way - it was definitely worth the walk! There was a great atmosphere - long tables where lots of people are sat together and live music. The huge window at the end of the room gives an unparalleled view of Ben Nevis.
We had the goats cheese and beetroot pasta and the lamb casserole. The pasta was very tasty - a good balance of flavour and looked impressive. The casserole was warm and savoury although it perhaps could have done with some different flavours and the lamb was a bit fatty for our liking.
The staff were all very friendly and the service was prompt.
We would definitely go back to the inn and try some of their other dishes which looked very good as well!

“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We had a great meal for 6 people at the Ben Nevis Inn, food is excellent and great value and the staff are friendly even when rushed off their feet. The entertainment added to the atmosphere, all in all a great night.

“Superb meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We just had a meal for 4 people at the Ben Nevis Inn. The restaurant was half full as it was early, but it still had a good atmosphere. The menu is extensive and the specials board was well worth a look. Our party had a starter and a main but didn't have enough room for dessert. The food was fresh and delicious, service was prompt and friendly. I fully recommend the restaurant and cannot wait to visit again. Make sure you book!!!
