My wife and I visited here twice in consecutive days. We ate lunch on both occasions and I can honestly say they serve one of the nicest burgers I have ever had.

We enjoyed a great dinner at the Ben Nevis Inn. I had the Ben Nevis Burger, which was great. It was a great place to eat and get warm by the fire after a long day of hiking. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I would say it was one of the best dinners we had in Fort William.

After a long drive we were very pleased to have a meal and refreshments at the Inn. The large facility provides the visitor with a fresh and clean break where a good menu and drink selection awaits. Plenty o tables and great views

Visited the Ben Nevis Inn with friends and was delighted by the warm,friendly and relaxed surroundings. The food was outstanding. It is reasonable priced not cheap but not expensive. The food was very nicely presented and nothing was too much trouble for the staff on duty.

Myself and my partner had a great meal here. We had never visited Fort William before and we had a great time. Food was delicious and we had a lovely bottle of wine. Staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was great!
