We ate in the pub, not the restaurant. Met some locals. Had mussels - sooo good and fresh, and the salmon roll, which was great! The woman running the pub here is so sweet, and a skilled multitasker!

Another delicious meal in The Ferryboat! We ate there 3 times for dinner. Could not fault the food. Service sometimes a bit erratic due to the fact it was very busy. Excellent choice of seafood and well priced.

We finished off our fabulous holiday in Ullapool with a fabulous meal. We dined with friends in the small but oh so friendly dining room and spoilt ourselves rotten. Scallops, langoustines and other freshly caught fish were perfectly cooked and serviced with just the right amount of flavouring to complement and not drawn their sea fresh taste. And then we...

Position and interesting people. Good location on Shore Street on the waterfront. Excellent choice of dishes and you can get the catches of day done the way you want out of several choices. thought this was very innovative and excellent. As always some fish not cheap but very good quality

this is our third visit to the Ferry Boat Inn over 4 years and it didn't disappoint! We wanted fish and chips - plain and simple and that's what we got. We arrived a little early (5 minutes before midday) after a 6 hour drive from England and we were hungry. Nothing phased them - we sat down - they... More

The food was lovely here, really fresh and reasonably priced. The service could have been better - the manager (?) wasn't too welcoming - mind you we were 5 minutes early for the 6pm dinner! - but the bar/waiting staff were great.
