Read about this place on trip advisor and called in for a swift local ale one afternoon after hiking around Glen Nevis. Really fell in love with the place so as we were camping nearby booked for a meal the following evening. So glad we did! Place was buzzing with folks from all over the globe, all chatting about hiking climbing and generally having a good time. The food was good the beverages too. Folks were coming in off the mountains as well as some just out for an evening meal but all said it was one of the most memorable parts of their holiday. Definitely be going back when up in the area again.

Visited here after climbing ben and what a welcome sight this place was great local ales and food especially the haggis neeps and tatties. Came back in the evening a couple of days later for a night of locals playing traditional instruments what a great night!! We were staying at stob-ban- view cottage at the end of the road from here and asked the owner to phone us a taxi at the end of the night to which he replied no need I'll drop you back!! What a great guy!

Just what we needed after a day on the Ben! Really good choice of food and drink served in a very informal and chalet style setting. At around £25 per head for a meal and drink ( with service) this seemed very good value to us and so much so that we went back the following night! Good to book and make sure you know the route as it is easy to miss it the first time.

We visited last week in the evening. We had booked prior to our visit and had a very warm welcome from all the staff. It was very busy throughout our visit which was lovely to see.

The atmosphere and food was amazing and i would recommend anyone to go if in the area, but i would advise to book as many walkers call in after climbing Ben and you may have to wait.

Many thanks

Excellent hearty food including some great Scottish dishes served in a great atmosphere by friendly staff. A varied menu with healthy sized portions. There is a good selection of regional ales also.

Great after a hard day climbing the mountain. If you're staying at the nearby camp site or YHA youth hostel (only a short walk away) the inn is definitely worth a visit!
