The beer was fine

Only went for beer . it was very busy with drinkers and people wanting food. I imagine in high Season it will get too crowded

Had a v nice meal here, mussels with bread and chips. Also came here for drinks each night of our 3 night stay. Lovey "local" pub. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I had dinner at The Ferry Boat Inn Restaurant during our 2-night stay in Ullapool. We had a lovely waitress who was juggling a giant group, along with 3 other tables, without missing a beat. My husband had the fish pie, and I had the mussels--both our meals were delicious! We also stayed for dessert and coffee--we... More

We've eaten here a few times. Seafood is fresh and tasty, staff are friendly. However, for us the main attraction is the music. Wednesday nights it is open mike. Thursday nights at the moment is PatShez who is brilliant. Perfect evening.

We were tempted in for an evening meal by the previous good reviews. Perhaps our own fault, but, if you turn left you enter the warm, friendly bar which does bar meals, we only knew this after we left and saw through the window! If you turn right, you enter the restaurant called the Blue Kazoo. GOOD point: the staff... More

Been here in Ullapool for a short break between jobs. Food is excellent, going for the John Dory tonight. Staff are very easy going, polite and helpful beyond belief. I noted another comment about the poor standards in the toilet! I must concur on this, it appears the staff know the issue but the owners are "extremely" slow to attend... More

The bar staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The food is excellent. Bar and restaurant are on the front with an excellent view of the bay. This is day 3 and I've returned here every night for evening meal, not to be missed.

We shared a seafood platter which was good value for money. It included smoked mackerel pate, hot smoked salmon, crab, prawns, salad, smoked salmon. The table overlooked the little harbour. Really lovely seafood restaurant.
