More like a shark with chips. The food is fabulous, the fish is huge. I had a great burger and all the portions are very generous. the staff are friendly and the bistro cafe has great views of the canal and Ben Nevin. I would highly recommend a visit for lunch

Called to make possible reservation and ask if they had table for 4, and was it possible to bring the dog, yes was the answer if you eat in the bar.

We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant as we did not want to travel to far. We were not disappointed, the menu, food, and staff all perfect for our evening meal.

The Moorings Hotel Restaurant on Neptune's Staircase near Fort William is difficult to categorize. The atmosphere is a nice restaurant, but the food is basically pub grub with a couple of specials thrown in. But the food was quite good. It's the staff that gives us pause.
