My boyfriend and I booked a table here on a busy Saturday evening. The food was really delicious and we especially enjoyed the Carbonara. The staff were very friendly and ambience was lovely. Would definitely recommend and hope to return one day!

Pleasant surroundings and a comfortable atmosphere, well attended to by the polite staff. We enjoyed a lovely meal of pork loin for myself and sea bass for my wife which were both ample portions, beautifully cooked and presented. We would recommend you eat here if...in Fort William and will revisit given the opportunityMore

Terrible bread, boring salmon starter, main courses were satisfactory. Banana Tatin pastry was uncooked. Should be a lot better with the ingredients they have.

A lovely restaurant! The food was lovely, the staff were attentive and efficient. It’s well priced and a few minute walk from the town centre.

We had a very good meal here and were very impressed with the restaurant as well. Very tastefully decorated and all the staff friendly and efficient. We had scallop mini fish cakes in chilli sauce and Wild Buttery Mushrooms to start, which were very good....For mains we had lamb rack pistachio crust, asparagus, pave potato, brown jus and pan fried sea bass, creamed leeks, new potatoes, chilli butter sauce. The lamb was beautifully cooked, as was the sea bass. The only slight down for me personally was the fondant potato served with the lamb, I found the marzipan-like flavour crust unpalatable, but my husband liked it. Nothing to do with the food, but the car park is tiny for such a large restaurant and 30 room hotel. We had to find somewhere else to park, not easy as the towns car parks are about a mile away and a 20 minute walk. Not what you want when you’re dolled up for a night out.More

My wife and I ate here the other night. I had tried to book by phone and text, but failed. Luckily, as we ate early at 18.00, we got in anyway. Beautifully furnished and laid out with bar and dining tables. Good menu and the...food was excellent if a little bit pricey. Would certainly recommend it.More

Spent a lovely afternoon enjoying an afternoon tea with my family. Service was fantastic (thank you Stefan!), attentive and considerate but not overbearing. The food was beautifully presented and really tasty and fresh. So much food we couldn't finish it so after being offered a...box to take away we took it with us. Good selection of teas and even made my son a specialised tea. We ordered a bottle of prosecco to go with the afternoon tea (it would be rude not to!), lovely drop and reasonably priced for such a lovely venue. Thank you for a lovely afternoon, we will definitely be back again soon!More

I went yesterday with four members of the family including my 12 year old grandson for afternoon tea, it was fantastic. We were greeted at reception by Stefan who was our waiter for the afternoon and Laura the receptionist, both very friendly and charming. Stefan...served the afternoon tea and was attentive but not overbearing for the afternoon, what an asset he is. The food itself was amazing with an excellent choice of sandwiches, cakes and scones. A selection of teas and coffees were available and our grandson enjoyed his "special" iced tea that Stefan made him. I would thoroughly recommend the afternoon tea and will be going back for a meal next time we are in Fort William.More

We stayed at the Inn, so appreciated being able to eat onsite instead of leaving after a day of driving and sightseeing. Delicious wines, pasta, big salad, and yummy pork loin. The waiter was friendly and efficient. Then we had the full breakfast the next...morning served very well, hot and delicious. It's a very pretty restaurant with nice welcoming decor.More

Chosen to celebrate the completion of the West Highland Way. Ticked all the boxes. Menu had a good range of dishes which were well prepared and presented. Decent wine list. Unlike other places we have visited on this trip, our meals arrived promptly and we...never felt that we were being forgotten. We went early but it started to fill up as we finished and it started to get a bit noisy. Staff were friendly and professional.More
