The Jacobite Lounge of the Ben Nevis Bar looked inviting and the menu outside showed decent prices. The amount of people dining here in the otherwise quiet town told us that this was the place to be. The staff are very friendly and as the title suggests, the burgers huge. The meals around us also looked good.

After a bad experience at the Great Glen pub across the street we went to the Ben Nevis. It was cold outside but we managed to get a prime table in front of the log burner. Very cosy. Drinks were inexpensive. The staff were very helpful when I had a few questions about local attractions. We didn't eat here. Several... More

The food was very good quality pub food, served by very friendly staff. The lounge is really nicely done out, with a lovely warm fire - very welcome! We really enjoyed our meal and it was very reasonably priced.

Had New Year's Eve in the Ben Nevis bar. It was fab. There was 12 of us and they gave us a table for the night. The entertainment was good and so was the food. We had a great night. The only disappointment was they only had 3 small bottles of processo. It's was hogmaney and only a few small... More

Popped in today for some Sunday luch and were delighted we did so. The place was spotless and the staff were very friendly. We all had something different and were quickly served with top quality food. The total bill was fantastic value and we really couldn't have asked for more. First class service all round.

Very dissapointed on visiting the Ben Nevis. Steak was very poor quality served on a stone cold plate, the cod fillet in batter was a soggy mess again on a cold plate. No staff were available when we left and as we were in a hurry did not want to wait to complain.

A family of six, this was our second night out in Fort William, wish we had gone to McDonald's. Ok, the food was pretty poor, my 12 year old's mashed potato (with sausages and gravy) had a thick crust which couldn't be broken through with an ice axe. My chicken and pepper skewer was disappointing but my husband's curry was... More
