My friend and I were on a road trip from Glasgow to the Isle of Skye, and we decided to stop in Fort William for some lunch. We walked up the main street and back down, settling on The Crofter, thinking it was an actual British pub. By British pub, I mean good food for a reasonable price with reasonable service. After being seated, it became apparent that the only Scottish person in the whole restaurant other than the waitstaff was my friend. The waitstaff was short and unattentive. My friend ordered brocolli pasta and I ordered fish and chips. When the fish came out, it had obviously just been taken out of a freezer in the kitchen and heated up. Dry, tasteless, and generally awful. I could have done that myself. My friend's pasta dish came with a sauce that was tantamount to water with powder mixed in. My chips were cold and generally inedible. This was easily the worst pub experience I've ever had in the whole of the British Isles; now I understand why foreigners thing British food is terrible - because they ate at The Crofter on holiday.
