Located in the centre of Fort Wiliam's pedestrianised High Street, The Ben Nevis Bar and Restaurant is one of Fort William's best pubs serving good food all day and a terrific range of beers and spirits. We stock two regular cask-conditioned ales in Fort William On street level our comfortable lounge bar has leather sofas and easy-chairs to relax in after a day's activities. Our outside deck offers amazing views of Loch Linnhe and the Ardgour Hills and is a great place to hang out on a sunny evening. Upstairs we have a spacious restaurant serving a wide variety of home-cooked dishes which include lots of local sea-food, beef and venison. try our home-made burgers and a freshly-prepared, healthy side salad... We do great Thai curries according to some of our local regulars!
