On a recent visit to fort William i visited the crofter a few times and each time the food was excellent and the service was great. Plus as an added bonus this place is dog friendly.

The crofter was doing a January promotion for buy a drink get a £1 meal of a limited menu. I got the fajitas which was really good value. Service at the bar was quite slow, but the food came out quickly. Overall quite good.

Just like I’ve said in the title, good wee pub with good food after a day on the hills. Friendly atmosphere and right at the centre of town. There a car park less than a minutes walk that only charges £1 for 2 hours.

Typical pub food. We went on a busy night, but the service was still very good. Good choices for beer.
