Good food but was very quite so lacked some atmosphere when we went but we were assured by our accommodation host that it is usually very busy. Decor was atmospheric and we both enjoyed the food (duck and burger) which were really good portions.

We were recommended this place by the locals. It was a great find, away from the crowds. The food was just ok, but the place itself had a nice atmosphere and very good customer service. The view is stunning and the nature around is beautiful.

Visited the Ben Nevis Inn a couple of times on our recent trip to Fort William. Initially for some food, a couple of toasted sandwiches, which were simple, but great. A number of people around us were having more substantial meals which looked fantastic. The Fish and Chips looked more akin to a whale on the plate. The second visit... More

Cosy atmosphere, staff very friendly and helpful. Toys and books to amuse young children and a good selection of food on the menu. Lovely views and surroundings which makes it ideal location to eat or drink after a long walk in glen Nevis or on Ben Nevis :)
