Hearty portions are served in a rustic setting with wooden benches and woodburning stoves. Self service in ordering food and you also collect it at the bar too. I believe the other bar has table service. Best beer/ale selection of our entire trip. Very friendly staff.

Myself and partner were staying at the Isles of Glencoe Hotel, a short drive down the road and decided to pay the Clachaig Inn a visit for a meal... Although dark, we could see it was a lovely drive up to the Inn with a beautiful little river en route. Service was rather slow, however the food was very nice... More

Visit the Clachaig often but had a particulary grrat night with a large group of friends and family who tasted the delights of the bootbar gantry whilst lostening to the fantastic Lewis Hamilton Band, who visit the Clachaig often with their rock and blues tunes. Great night!

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
