Typical type of pub right in the high street precinct area, atmosphere was ok due to the rugby being on, just here for drinks

Called a fortnight ago for drinks and a burger and was disappointed with quality of food. Also, more worryingly we noticed what appeared to be vermin droppings in the toilets. Hopefully nothing but we raised to management who seemed aware of the issue already. Sure it's nothing that can't be solved but concerned us ahead of waiting for food which... More

We stopped here just for drinks before dinner somewhere else. Pub wasn't busy but was a little slow getting drinks. Atmosphere just okay. Maybe we picked a bad/slow night.

Went for a quick dinner as other places were full and it was a pleasant surprise. Lovely staff, great value for money. Guinness Pie was great!

Very disappointed to be turned away from a pub we have previously enjoyed, because we had our 2 year old daughter with us. The bar on the left stated no under 18's, so we went in the bar on the right, and as we only wanted drinks we were told no children were allowed unless we were eating. Either children... More

General Manager A, Manager at Ben Nevis Bar and Restaurant, responded to this review

I am sorry that you think its an anti family establishment but our license states that children can come in only for the purpose of eating, and you are right the bar on the left is for over 18 as we have two separate licenses. Thank you very much for sharing these comments, Claire H. More

Nice pub with nice setting, lovely log burner warm & welcoming, we ordered food & after an hour wait we went to the bar to ask when the food would be here, a customer ( obviously known) then had to go behind the bar to the kitchen to get one of the overworked staff who was very polite, apologised, offered...

Excellent service from the management and staff. Spoke to them about a buffet with an Asian theme and they delivered brilliantly. Thanks.

This pub is located on the High St in the centre of Fort William. Pub is split into two halves with a bar area and a lounge / dining area. Have eaten here in the past and was very good but this time only came in for drinks so used the bar area. Comfortable bar and seating area with dartboard... More
