My partner and I visited here last year while staying in Fort William and just had a quick snack and a drink, but loved it so much we stopped into Fort William on the way to Morayshire to go there again. You can find it on the main street and it looks fairly unassuming from the outside. When you go in though you will find a proper little tavern almost like something from a Terry Pratchett book. A benched area, with two or three tables, a beer barrel makes a further table and a couple of tiny booths are all that is to be found. But with natural wood and stone interior the Grog and Gruel is a really cosy and relaxing place to while away the time for a drink and some food. the food is really good too. A variety of things to be found on the menu including venison sausages to pizza with a range of sides means there there is something for everyone. My partner is a vegetarian and was delighted with the choice which is not often the case and thoroughly enjoyed the carrot and coriander homemade soup. As testament to the food on offer you couldn't help but have a good look at other meals that appeared for other tables and wished there was an all you can eat option! There is also an extensive whiskey/malt selction and numerous ales on offer. Pricewise there were no complaints either which for a touristy place like Fort William - a pleasant surprise. This is a rustic, warm and friendly place with great food and if you are in Fort William or just passing - pop in. We did on the return journey back to Glasgow and will do again should we be in the area.
