The Gathering Café & Bistro

Two styles of dining

Adjacent to The Glencoe Inn stands Glencoe Gathering, a contemporary “posh” chippie and all day café, plus high-end bistro. Whilst dining in the café is a casual experience, the quality, standard and presentation of the food is just as high as in the more formal bistro.

Everyone is welcome

Glencoe Gathering is a haven in the Scottish Highlands for those looking to relax in a warm and friendly setting. Our bar area is ideal for a wee nip by the stove fire after a day roaming the glen, and provides an opportunity to trade stories with fellow travellers whilst enjoying the talents of local musicians. 

The Glencoe Gathering café is a good call if you fancy popping in for a hot morning roll and fresh coffee, or a pint and a hearty lunch or dinner. There’s a fine selection on the menu, with the likes of a special griddle section, burgers, small plates and homemade haddock and thick cut chips making for an eclectic mix.

The setting is unique, relaxed and stylish. A friendly vibe and contemporary music creates a great low-key hangout for peckish passers-by and enthusiastic skiers, hillwalkers and cyclists needing to refuel after a fun day. The perfect spot to enjoy a well-earned renowned ice cream sundae!

The arrangement of the tables and the seating encourages conversation and communion - a sense that this is a real community gathering.

Because we believe strongly in high quality, locally sourced seasonal ingredients, please be advised that on occasion advertised dishes may be unavailable. 

To set you up for a day out and about, guests can choose between a continental style buffet or a full Scottish cooked breakfast, complete with Stornoway black pudding supplied by the award-winning Charles Macleod.

Later in the day, the Gathering bistro provides a touch of sophistication, so you can enjoy a glass of wine with friends, family and loved ones in smart yet relaxed surroundings. The menu has been put together using an abundance of regional produce for authentic Scottish fare; from lobster and locally landed mussels, to fillet steak made from the finest cuts of beef.

Glencoe Gathering bar is a popular meeting place for walkers, skiers, mountain bikers, ramblers and locals alike, all of whom enjoy the combination of panoramic views and great food washed down with real ales. There’s everything you would expect from your local pub, so you can have a dram or two at the bar and stick a tune on the jukebox, or kick back with a plate of great food and banter with other patrons.
