Can't comment on food as kitchen was already shut at 8pm but looked more like a local pub to watch sports than a place to eat

We stopped for an early tea after a busy day out walking etc. The place is a typical pub, if a little dated. Staff were friendly and service was good. The food was average at best and I wouldn't rush back.

Popped in here for food expecting a bit more than what we got. It was ok but doubt was that freshly cooked. No better that Wetherspoons further up the high street. Staff seemed like they were struggling to handle the workload and although smiled you could tell they were going through motions. Probably more concerned with the regulars. It wasn't... More

When up in the area and needing to watch football we always pop in here as food is cheap and well presented and there are numerous TVs to watch the football. If in the area would definitely recommend.

Just been for lunch at the Crofter. Waited 40 minutes for food, definitely not full, bit a little busy. Chicken burgers arrived and found that the bun was dry and falling apart, chicken was dry, very little salad on the bun just a poor floppy piece of lettuce. I asked the manager if I could have a replacement meal quickly... More

We had a very nice lunch (I ordered gourmet burger with fries and hot chocolate) it's about £10. Tasty burger meat and amazing burger taste. Hot chocolate taste good strong enough, better than luxury hotel hot chocolate! Waiters are all friendly and nice. We had a very good lunch time here and enjoyed football game together with the other people... More

We had an overnight stay in Fort William and had our evening meal at The Crofter. We were a party of 6, with 4 adults and 2 kids aged 10 and 9. The Crofter was busy but staff were very accommodating and quickly set up a double table for us. The food was good hearty pub food with excellent portions,... More
