Breakfast cold table was very good with a good choice. The cooked breakfast had very small eggs and the bacon was overcooked and hard.

Short menu but all looked very attractive. Smoked cod waldorf salad was excellent. Venison ring more average (it's a sausage!) Good service. Would revisit

The food philosophy at the Lime Tree is that dishes are made here from fresh, seasonal, locally sourced raw ingredients, then made into something special by our skilled innovative Chef team 'The Lime Tree Restaurant style is one we have come to know as Fiddly Posh Scottish: Lamb with a family tree, duck that went to Gordonstoun, fish that kept its nose clean. All this technically superb, and while served in a part of the country not blessed with an abundance of fine dining, nonetheless worthy of comparison with the cities best. Fort William finally has a heavy-weight culinary destination.' - Sunday Times Restaurant The Lime Tree Restaurant is a multi award winning restaurant - Silver Eat Scotland - Two AA Rosette - Relish Good Food Guide - Top Twenty Scottish Small Restaurant Private Dining Our fantastic art gallery space is the perfect location for private dining or special celebrations. We can seat up to 50 persons and our Chef will tailor a meal to suit your requirements.
