I've visited here a number of times. The food has always been lovely and reasonably priced, the service is great, the location is amazing. I will keep coming back.

Lovely unique pub. Somewhere decent for the locals to go. Good night out when you live in the sticks. The food has been a hit or a miss in the past but overall it is pretty good. Cheap pub grub - especially if you have come from a long a drive or walk.

Every time I visit this great Inn I enjoy it. From the days over 40 years ago when I climbed in the area, and spent many hours in this Inn sheltering from the rain and playing darts with other climbers. My most recent visit I enjoyed a fulfilling lunch of Haggis Tatties and Neeps .... a great plateful. The attitude... More

If you're in Glencoe you'll already know about the Clachaig, as the tag line says, great craic! A real buzzy atmosphere, good value home cooked food, great beers and a great view. A must visit destination if you're walking the hills.

Came here for lunch after going for a walk. The food could not have been tastier. We had the chili and I think we all agreed it was the best chili we had ever had. I will remember this meal for a while!

Stopped here on our way home from Ballachullish and had one of the best meals of our trip. The atmosphere was busy with lots of families and walkers but service was fast and efficient and the food was delicious. Had the pork and chorizo chilli which was served in a crispy tortilla type idea and it was fantastic. Portions were... More

Not an extensive menu, but the food was great and plentiful. The vegi option for the lady was a winner too

Another traveller recommended us this place and I’m very happy we listened to her. We had a very good dinner here. Good price, even better food. Oh and did I mention the sights? This place is located at the foot of some impressive mountain scenery. The proximity to Glencoe (one of Scotland’s “capitals” of hiking) also means that you can... More

Was OK, interesting concept of food ordering in a pub, food was cooked fine and large portions, quiet expensive.
