Wanted to try out the local beers and ended up sitting in this pub for a few hours one late afternoon and enjoying dinner. The owner was kind enough to open up the gift shop for the brewery for us. The barmaid / servers were all fun, friendly and great to chat with! We had a blast with the locals here - fun to talk with. Can't remember what we ate, but can tell you we enjoyed our 2-3 hours here.

The Benleva Hotel is half a mile down a track from the centre of Drumnadrochit. It was a Bank Holiday Monday, it was open and it was serving good pub food, excellent beers and malt whiskies and coffee for the driver! The bar was busy with locals and visitors. You felt you were a welcome visitor and not, as in some other establishments, just another tourist to be fleeced and never seen again. Well worth the short detour off the main tourist trap track.

Called in for a beer in the afternoon having stopped in Drumnadrochit for a night on a 6-day Highland tour. Our B&B was just a 10 minute walk away. Back in the evening for a meal which can be taken in the public bar or in the lounge. Owner Steve was on duty and is passionate about their own Loch Ness brews. I tried and greatly enjoyed the WilderNess which went down well with my excellent home made Beef burger. My wife had the venison burger which was equally tasty. Steve took time to chat with us and check how the beer was giving suggestions for places and pubs of interest on the rest of our trip. The lounge had numerous other diners all of whom were treated as guests and given time by Steve. The bar also offer the 3 1/3 pint selection of ales which would allow for all 6 on tap to be tasted in a couple of rounds.

Good food, great beer, warm welcome. POTY is no surprise
