I've been to The Tavern quite a few times lately. The food there is always excellent, and the service is fine too. The last time I was there I had a full meal, starter of the BEST chicken soup I've EVER had ANYWHERE. The mains was lovely too. This place does cocktails too. I ordered a Pina Colada, which came...

As I understand from my brief visit, if you don't want to spend too much, good food can be hard to find in Fort William. We've found this place in Feb 2017 for dinner. It is great. In my opinion one of the best places to have a traditional Scottish diner in Fort William. Good service, busy atmosphere, rich menu,... More

Went out for a lazy family lunch on a dreich Saturday afternoon. The whole experience was excellent. Fast, efficient and friendly service. Tasty starters followed by large portions on the main course. The sticky toffee pudding was superb with both cream and ice cream. Total bill for the three of us was only £57. Well done.

We had the tuna panini and club sandwich, both of which hit the spot. Good portions and at a fair price. It's a fairly small bar but I really liked the atmosphere of the place. Pretty quiet as we're out of season but the service was excellent. I'd recommend the Tavern Cafe Bar to you.

We came across this great little place whilst looking for somewhere warm to eat on a wet Monday evening. The chap behind the bar made us very welcome on our arrival, showed us straight to a table and took our drinks order. There is plenty variety on the menu, prices are reasonable and there is a special offer of TWO... More

Went for a chill dinner with my partner. Extensive food and drink options. food was cooked perfectly, relaxed atmosphere, and all of this at a fair price. Two mains, two cocktails, a pint, scotch and a desert for £35. Service was good. Would happily return.
