Called to make possible reservation and ask if they had table for 4, and was it possible to bring the dog, yes was the answer if you eat in the bar. We were quickly seated in the bar and asked for our order promptly. The fist course arrived very quickly, the haggis was just warmed but was very tasty, again... More

We decided to eat in the hotel restaurant as we did not want to travel to far. We were not disappointed, the menu, food, and staff all perfect for our evening meal.

Food was great and the portions were big (probably bit too big for me, but I had some help!) Friendly staff. Would like to have another visit during daylight hours as there's a lovely looking terrace that... More

The Moorings Hotel Restaurant on Neptune's Staircase near Fort William is difficult to categorize. The atmosphere is a nice restaurant, but the food is basically pub grub with a couple of specials thrown in. But the food was quite good. It's the staff that gives us pause. The waitresses were friendly and efficient, but a male dressed like a manager... More

Four of us dined at the Moorings after visiting the locks at Neptune's Staircase. We didn't get to see the locks in action, but it was a beautiful, although misty, night. Food was great.
