Tradition atmosphere - good for fish

This is an old Inn right on the harbour-front in Ullapool, with good views over the Loch if you can get a table by the window. It has a very 'traditional' and local atmosphere and specialises in good fish dishes. Dishes are fairly pricey but this applies to most places in town. We were there at... read more

We have visited the Ferry Boat on several occasions over the years and hope to return. Combines good quality food with a local boozer serving real ales. Superb views over Ullapool Harbour. Great staff and atmosphere.

We ate here one evening. We both had the sea bass, which was very fresh and expertly cooked. The staff were friendly and efficient. The room is quite small and fills up quickly so be early or book.

I was staying in holiday cottage next door and restaurant had been recommended. Booked one day ahead, arrived early so got table by window overlooking Loch. Rather useless waitress but nice food, linguine with scallops, cod with chorizo, both well cooked. £30 for two courses and one glass of wine. Busy bar next door.

I went to the gents toilet and found that the floor was awash and the smell of urine was so intense that I felt physically sick. When I reported this to a member of staff she replied, "Yes I know. Sorry about that. It's been like that for years, maybe it's a problem with the drains". What kind of establshment... More

My wife and I visited the Ferryboat twice on a recent visit to Ullapool. The first was on an "open mic" night which proved to be very entertaining. Our thanks to Henry from California who treated the packed bar to a range of blues harmonica music just like a professional (perhaps he was?) ably assisted by his new found friend... More

Its nice when the barmaid knows what you want after 2 visits! I love the atmosphere of this little place. Something going on most nights, and a view to die for!! Well worth a detour, a meal, or a stop over. This place has it all going on.
