Just been for lunch at the Crofter. Waited 40 minutes for food, definitely not full, bit a little busy. Chicken burgers arrived and found that the bun was dry and falling apart, chicken was dry, very little salad on the bun just a poor floppy piece of lettuce. I asked the manager if I could have a replacement meal quickly... More

We had a very nice lunch (I ordered gourmet burger with fries and hot chocolate) it's about £10. Tasty burger meat and amazing burger taste. Hot chocolate taste good strong enough, better than luxury hotel hot chocolate! Waiters are all friendly and nice. We had a very good lunch time here and enjoyed football game together with the other people... More

We had an overnight stay in Fort William and had our evening meal at The Crofter. We were a party of 6, with 4 adults and 2 kids aged 10 and 9. The Crofter was busy but staff were very accommodating and quickly set up a double table for us. The food was good hearty pub food with excellent portions,... More

The Crofter had been recommended to us and we decided to have dinner there on a Tuesday. Sadly what we did not realise was that European football would be on the 5 plus screens in the restaurant section. Food was good but always conscious of people looking over you from the bar to watch the match. Food was good pub... More

Not the fanciest place, but decent food at a fair price. Not too loud or busy. Service was good but not great.

recently stopped at the Crofter after a day of touring for our group of 5 persons. I cannot comment on the food as we just stopped for drinks. The atmosphere was quite lively and full of guests at the bar. We ordered several rounds of drinks and got to talk to a few locals. Also met Dale Monk who worked... More

We used this pub last year and once again we visited it several times for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Unlike most pubs where you order your food at the bar, this place has waiters and waitresses who take your order and bring food and drinks to your table. It is a pub so you can of course just drink at... More

This place is so good we revisited it a few times this year. The staff are very welcoming and it must help the establishment that many of them are multi lingual. Food and beverages are very reasonably priced, quickly served and presented well. We will return when in the area again.
