'Come away in'

A warm welcome & a cold pint.

Whether you've stumbled in the door looking for a cold pint after completing a munro, want to sip fizz on a celebration holiday, or are just over in between ferries looking to quench your thirst on a hot day, the Old Forge bar has something for everyone. 

Cask ales and draught beer & cider come as standard, along with a wide range of craft beers, spirits, malt whisky and soft drinks for the weans. We aim to showcase all that Scotland has to offer and support local. Our house ales are brewed just up the road at Knoydart Brewery.

So come away in and see what we've got on offer!

The Restaurant

Booking strongly advised - please email

We are now on our summer opening hours, serving meals daily 12:00 - 15:00 for lunch, and 17:30 - 21:00 for dinner (no food service Thursday lunch)

We have a fantastic new team in the kitchen this season who will be cooking up a range of hearty pub grub and local specialities. Favourite dishes include Knoydart venison and fresh fish & seafood from Mallaig, and we always make sure to have a few veggie and vegan options on the menu as well, as well as catering for gluten free and other dietary needs.


When the community took ownership of the pub, one of things that a lot of folk wanted to see return was music sessions. In days gone by the Old Forge was renowned for almighty sessions - at times 10 or 20 musicians squeezed around a couple of tables, the music fierce, the craic on high form, and tunes and songs filling the air until the wee small hours. 

We have a regular schedule of music sessions during the summer months, and put together a wee range of events over the winter - check out this page for info on what's coming up. 



Our moorings were replaced in 2023 and last checked/serviced in March 2024. We have six available on a first-come-first-served basis - all have blue buoys.

Spec: 2 tonne anchor block with 32mm ground chain and16mm riser chain.

We do not have any accommodation facilities at the pub, but please check out the Visit Knoydart website for a full list of options on the peninsula.

Helicopter Landing

Please be aware that private helicopter/small aircraft landing is not permitted in Inverie Village. The grassy area at the front of the pub is not large enough for safe landing, and the beach is tidal. Those wishing to fly in to Knoydart are advised to contact other landowners on the peninsula to find a suitable and safe landing area out with the village. Thank you.
