We spent one night in Glencoe whilst walking the WHW. We had a truly great meal. If you dont book in advance, note the bar and restaurant have the same menu. You can walk into the bar. A great treat.

Lovely pub with a good atmosphere with food to die for. Will definitely return. Plenty of choice on the menu. Dog friendly in the bar too which is a bonus. Waiters friendly.

Hi. It is safer to book if you want to eat in the restaurant, especially at the weekend. We also run the same menu in the bar where you don't need a reservation. The number is 01855811940 if you want to book in advance 😀
