On the first night of a visit to Fort William (May 17/18) I dropped into The Crofter. Was planning to have a meal further down the street.................but a single pint became several as the food being served around me was too good to resist. The Haggis followed by The Chicken & Leek Tagliatelle were superb. So good that I was enticed back again the following night and ordered the exact same. Good food, attentive staff – both behind the bar and serving food. Take a bow – (un)fortunately didn’t get to see any other pubs in FW on this occasion!

Great job on the food guys good pub meal service was very good nice and pleasant. Just please sort out the coffee I know it's a pub but you do advertise outside Lavazza but the cappuccino I had was really really bad I came in a second time just for a cappuccino and again really bad. Otherwise great ambiance I would def recommend it to anyone.
Thanks

Hi SeanR,

Many thanks for your review but I was disappointed to hear that the coffee you were served was not up to your expectation. I can categorically assure you that we only use Lavazza café crème beans as advertised and would not risk advertising something I don't use as this would be a blatant breach of trading standards. I will look into why the reasons you could have been served a sub standard coffee and reassess my team to ensure they are using the correct amount of ground coffee to get the perfect coffee. Please accept my apologies and hope you will pop back in to gauge that this was a one off. Ask for myself and I will happily make you the perfect cup of coffee on me.

Regards
Dale Monk

Thoroughly enjoyed my visit for a late lunch and beers. I sat on the terrace overlooking the Loch, the service was good and the food absolutely fine.
