Stayed in Fort William for a few days on a photography trip to the area. The Tavern had been recommended to us and we were not disappointed. The food was good, usual pub grub, and the services was friendly and efficient. Went back later in the week when it was very busy but still managed to find us a table... More

Ate there tonight and the fajitas were amazing. Served on a 3 tier stand so that you have some table space left, the beef was well cooked and the toppings seemed nice and fresh. A little side salad to freshen it up. Served with 4 tortillas and sufficient filling for all of them I found it too much for one... More

Clean and friendly staff. The fajitas and kebabs looked amazing. Sadly I had a salad which was not great and was sabotaged with white onion.

Lovely big bowl of hot Cullen Skint - yum The chef's batter is fabulous whether it is on the haggis bites, prawns or haddock it is light and crisp. We have always experienced a very friendly welcome and excellent service when ever we have visited.
