Was in Fort William for a flying visit with a friend and we wandered about a bit looking for somewhere inviting to eat and the promise of a 'real fire' lured us in here and I'm very glad it did. We both had burgers, my friend the pulled pork and I the chicken and both were very tasty and fresh,... More

Enjoyed our meals but the portions were small. Normally don't order dessert but needed them. Sticky toffee pudding was delicious.
