A warm Highland welcome to The Grog & Gruel

Conveniently located half way along Fort William’s pedestrianised High Street, The Grog & Gruel is a Traditional Alehouse and Restaurant with a warm and friendly atmosphere and a character all of its own.

Set half way along the High Street in Fort William, in the Highlands of Scotland and in the shadow of nearby Ben Nevis, our pub and restaurant provide a warm and friendly atmosphere where you will find a range of real ales and malt whiskies and a good place to eat.

During the day, call in for a bite to eat in the Alehouse, or simply a cup of tea or a freshly brewed coffee, to rest your legs from shopping on the High Street. Or in the evenings, dine in our first floor restaurant.

On busy evenings, the atmosphere of a traditional pub comes into its own, as travellers tell tales of their days out exploring the magnificent West Highlands, and beer enthusiasts talk of the delights of the latest local brew.

Families and four-legged-friends are welcome. Free wi-fi is always available.

Not your average Pub

Ask anyone who knows us and they’ll tell you the same thing. Maybe its our undying passion for serving Scottish ales, or local malt whisky, Maybe its our food, cooked fresh to order from an imaginative and varied menu. Since 1994, we’ve been doing what we do best.
