Great local music and atmosphere

We went to have a beer and use wifi when staying in the hostel just down the road and got a nice surprise as they had an open mic night with local performers, including the owner. Didn't worry about the wifi, and enjoyed the nice variety of music, and the local beers. Great atmosphere, good midweek... read more

I've been here several times during my trips to Ullapool. It's my favorite pub because of the nice athmosphere, lovely staff and good food. Also the stunning view over Loch Broom is a major reason for me to come here time after time....

Fresh langoustines straight off the boat and good choice of fish of the day. Friendly inn overlooking the harbour.

Out of all our evening meals out in Ullapool this was the most disappointing. We each ordered a main dish of pan fried haddock which lacked both flavour and visual appeal. We were the only two eating and there were only four people with drinks at the bar. Maybe the pub gets livelier as the season progresses and we didn't... More

Booked a table for my son's 21st birthday. Staff were very helpful with my daughter's dietary requirements. On arrival we were the only people in the dining room but that was ok. What was less good was that the kitchen door opened directly off the dining room and every word could be heard, including some colourful language. The food took... More

this hotel is overpriced, especially considering it needs a full upgrade. The fact that breakfast is not included in the accommodation charge just reinforced that I would not recommend it.

Great fresh seafood, real ale, situated on the seafront, near the ferry to The Isle of Lewis. Great views across Loch Broom. Ullapool is an excellent base for plenty of fine mountains. The nightlife isn't that bad either.

My husband and I came into this rustic cozy place on our honeymoon. I am from a Northern Fishing town in New England and I love fresh Seafood. Well this place does it right. Fresh and flavourful. It was nice to see Clam Chowder on the menu. It's actually the first time I have seen clams offered at all on... More
