Nice pub with nice setting, lovely log burner warm & welcoming, we ordered food & after an hour wait we went to the bar to ask when the food would be here, a customer ( obviously known) then had to go behind the bar to the kitchen to get one of the overworked staff who was very polite, apologised, offered...

Excellent service from the management and staff. Spoke to them about a buffet with an Asian theme and they delivered brilliantly. Thanks.

This pub is located on the High St in the centre of Fort William. Pub is split into two halves with a bar area and a lounge / dining area. Have eaten here in the past and was very good but this time only came in for drinks so used the bar area. Comfortable bar and seating area with dartboard... More

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.

The only disappointment was they only had 3 small bottles of processo. It's was hogmaney and only a few small... More
