We were spending a few days in the area and looked for some reviews on the internet before we left, noticed there was music here on a Tuesday, so booked, which I am so glad we did as it was full. The staff were lovely, the food brilliant and delightful musicians playing a great assortment of tunes and instruments. If... More

A really lovely setting for an evening meal and a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. But the food wasn't as great as I'd hoped for. I had that chicken, mash and peppercorn sauce with haggis on top, which was mostly very tasty but the chicken was pretty chewy and overcooked. My husband had quite a nice burger but some of the chips... More

No food this year just drinks but a special place full of memories for the family. Location and views are wonderful plus the atmosphere as always very good. Will be coming back no doubt.

We arrived quite late, just before the kitchen was closed. Decent pub food and beer. Location was quite off the main road.

We'd spent the day hiking around Glen Nevis (which is a must-see, by the way) and felt peckish. Read about the Inn on TripAdvisor and it looked great, so we pulled in on the way back to town. Surprised to see the place was quite quiet (4pm on a Wednesday) so we sat down straight away and ordered some drinks,... More

We visited here on a day trip to Fort William and had a lovely dinner and some drinks. The food was great and the service was good. Highly recommended.

What a welcome retreat after a long hard day in the hills. We arrived soaking wet and were able to dry ourselves next to the roaring log burner. They were fully booked but managed to squeeze us in. Food exceptional and reasonably priced.

Really good food at a reasonable price. Lovely atmosphere. You have to go gown that single track access road some distance until you reach the restaurant so don't panic. Had the terrine to start both had Cajun chicken and sticky toffee pudding. Good service, great location but make sure you book early.

Called in here after climbing Ben Nevis, great location, just off the Mountain path on way back to the visitor center. Best tasting cider ever (think the walk up the mountain helped with that), never ate there but menu looked good. Nice beer garden to sit in when weather allows
