Always an excellent time at the inn. Spectacular scenery, best atmosphere for boot bat pub and love the haggis neeps and tatties

Food was great, reasonable prices and plenty to choose from. Excellent beer selection especially if you like cask style. Toffee dessert was great

Stopped in for a couple and a bite to eat. Beer was quite expensive @ £3.95 a pint but food was good and well priced. Local brews only so don't ask for a Budweiser or anything exotic. Lovely place for a seat outside on a sunny day. Would recommend.

Stopped in after a 6 mile hike. Great beer selection, and the food is very good- not bar food at all and a wide variety. We ended up getting a bunch of starters and they all were great. It wasn't crowded but we were there around 4pm. Hikers were just starting to drag in. It is a great clean casual... More

Visited during a week long stay in Glencoe village. The setting for this Inn is really stunning. Worth a visit if only for the views. Extensive bar and a nice place to go for a drink but the food is very average pub grub and the service felt impersonal. We visited because we liked the sound of dinner in a... More

Beautiful walk from Glencoe Village (about 2.5 miles) takes you to a large Pub with a wide selection of ales and good food. Music starts late at around 10:30 and we missed it. Too exhausted after looks of walking, but we were told it was good. If you drive, parking is ample.

On a lovely sunny evening. My daughter and I went here for a meal as our B&b didn't do evening meals. I had a lovely Brie topped with breadcrumbs followed by haggis neeps and tatties in a creamy whisky sauce. Delicious. Had to go to bar to order and then listen carefully for the staff to shout out your order... More

This place is a little quirky. Go into the Boot room Bar the choice of Ale's is fantastic. Order your food and wait for the man to ball out your order number! Then be smartish back to the bar to collect it. This place is NOT for the faint of heart lot. Great food, big servings and the best service... More

Lovely pub, great food and wide variety of local ales. Good service and modern decor with a mountain climbing theme . Ice pick handles on the doors and the wall adorned with climbing menribillia.

We went to the Clachaig with friends who knew this place well. More than just a pub, this place is popular with locals, walkers, climbers and anyone who likes good beer and hearty food and the craich! Constantly busy and lively this is a "must do" when in this area.
