We had a very nice meal here after a day in the hills. We all enjoyed our meal which was exactly what we needed to replenish the calories used up that day. Very reasonably priced and have no complaints. Definitely book ahead.thanks

Offering a small but traditional menu the old station restaurant caters for the discerning traveller seeking quality rather than quantity and delivers ample portions of exquisite cuisine. Complimented by fine whisky and wine menus one can dine and drink in a unique setting.

The Old Station in Spean Bridge is not far from Fort William and is worth the drive. On the site of the old rail station next to the golf course, the restaurant is nicely decorated and is roomy. The menu is a little limited, but sufficient--about ten choices of mains. The staff is friendly and efficient and the food is... More

At the Old Station Restaurant & Bar we offer great locally sourced food at reasonable prices. Dine in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, in the unique setting of a converted Victorian railway station on the world famous West Highland Line. We are located at Spean Bridge station where the Commandos began their training during the Second World War.
Relax beside the fire in our public bar and enjoy local real ales. We are the only bar in the village serving real ale on draught. We also have a good selection of malt whisky, Scottish gins and wine. We have a gluten-free menu which is available on request. Children are very welcome ... And we even have a special menu for the wee ones!
