This unusual,quirky restaurant in an old railway station waiting room was one of the highlights of our trip. Loved the setting, great service and the lamb was the best I have ever tasted.

There was nothing wrong with our meals but the food was definitely average. I had the salmon and it was nicely cooked but the meal was quite bland. The puddings were not good. Given the price of the meals I felt a bit ripped off.

I had dinner there last year. They do online bookings I think, and not open every day.

They certainly take Visa, and I imagine would take MasterCard as well.

Description
At the Old Station Restaurant & Bar we offer great locally sourced food at reasonable prices. Dine in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, in the unique setting of a converted Victorian railway station on the world famous West Highland Line. We are located at Spean Bridge station where the Commandos began their training during the Second World War. Relax beside the fire in our public bar and enjoy local real ales. We are the only bar in the village serving real ale on draught. We also have a good selection of malt whisky, Scottish gins and wine. We have a gluten-free menu which is available on request. Children are very welcome ... And we even have a special menu for the wee ones! Our Bar is open from 5pm until late in high season. Our Restaurant is open from 5.30pm until 9pm
