Good beer and good food.

This place is getting back to being good, it fell by the wayside a few years ago with them cramming so many tables in there was little room for the customers, but I suspect it's now under new management. The menu is heavily seafood, with a limited number of options if you're not into seafood, but I... read more

I have decided not to bother with other places and eat here for the rest of my stay in Ullapool. The difference is simply down to the delightful fish I and my partner have had on two visits so far. Moist, juicy, flavourful fish cooked for exactly the right length of time. They seem to make the extra effort not... More

I stayed very well and I enjoyed this place in three ways: as inn, restaurant and pub. Very familiar atmosphere and a marvelous landscape. I recommend to travellers.

Excellent fish food at medijm prices. Quality is very good. They have a dedicated restaurant room. Booking is strongly suggested.

I wanted to have a really nice seafood meal and have eaten here before when staying at the hotel. The pub part is great - good real ales and good atmosphere - you can eat here instead of in the restaurant room. Tried booking for 7.30 but were told the chef only accepts bookings at 6 or 8pm - which... More

Had a meal here recently whilst staying overnight in Ullapool. Chose to eat in the restaurant which was quite busy with a good atmosphere. Service was good and the seafood was top class. Would not hesitate to eat here again if we were in Ullapool.

Visited several times while on holiday. Always enjoyed the food. Staff friendly and helpful, especially Sandra. Good atmosphere with locals and visitors mixing well. Enjoyed the entertainment when we caught it, particularly the banter from the lady singer with the red guitar!

Stopped here to get a spot of lunch. We arrived just after two o clock and were told they would have to check if the chef was still making lunch which was a disappointment. Ordered baked potatoes which were okay but we're not particularly hot. A side of coleslaw was £2.00 and we expected more than the small pot which... More
