Fort William Pubs And Bars

Fort William has a really good selection of pubs and bars which offer bar meals and good beers.

Fort William has a good selection of pubs and bars.  Cobbs Bar, located at the side of the Nevisport Shop - serve cask conditioned ale to a good standard. The bar has a large open fire, which is very welcoming on a cold day. Brewers Fayre has a bar area in their family restaurant within walking distance of the bus and train stations.

The Ben Nevis Inn at the foot of Ben Nevis where good food and drink is served all day with a selection of Highland cask conditioned ales. In Glen Nevis, the Glen Nevis Restaurant has a large and friendly lounge bar.

The Grog and Gruel in the High Street usually has the widest choice of cask ales as well as a selection modern lagers from independent breweries. The West End Hotel's large bar provides a good place to relax. The Crofter Bar is popular for live sport events and has a large bar area. In the centre of the High Street The Volunteer, is probably Fort William's old pub, and named after recruits "volunteered" for active service in Scottish regiments in opposite Cameron Square. Today is provides pool and other special evening events. Towards the west end, The Ben Nevis Bar is also an old pub, with two bars with a large dining area upstairs.

Fort William most recent addition is Witherspoons Great Glen, which sits on the site of the former Grand Hotel. This bar has an excellent interior design based on the Outdoor Capital concept and is probably the largest too. It also just happens to be at the end of the West Highland Way...

South of Fort William in Glencoe is the Clachaig Inn, which has a great location and reputation for good beers and beer festivals, and at Onich where The Four Seasons Bar offers a friendly family environment for relaxing. They stock cask ales.
