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.

Fairly large, comfortable bar restaurant, which often has live entertainment in the evenings. It serves breakfast, brunch, lunch & dinner. We sampled all three there and all were home cooked dishes that were very good. The staff are all very friendly and efficient and nothing is any bother to them. We started off with lunch, recommended by people exiting after... More

So Scottish. So fort william! Best place in town for a pint and a pub meal. Superb atmosphere with plenty of lcd screens to take in the latest match or boxing event. One of the only places in town that the owner goes out of his way to create an excellent themed atmosphere during special events or holidays. Christmas decor... More

Visited for lunch. Welcomed as soon as we entered even though it was busy, and didn't have to wait long to be shown to a table. Good selection of beers on tap and a large menu available. I could have eaten the leek and potato soup with a knife and fork. Very filling.Lovely pleasant atmosphere and would thoroughly recommend.
