Visited several times whilst on hols in Ullapool. Great location and the live music on Thursday was great. Ate here once. Excellent fish pie.

Small but fun. Right across from the harbor, you can sit by the window and watch the boats and the weather.

We decided to eat here on our way south. The pub is located on the side of the loch and has some great views if you are lucky enough to get a window table. The beers we tried were excellent. The food was also good. The pub specialises in seafood, and although the menu isn't extensive, there should be something... More

This really is an awful pub serving awful beer that has no head and is as flat as a pancake. My wife and I tried two separate ales and both were shockingly badly kept. What's more the Staff grumpy & unwelcoming. Please don't bother, there are many better pubs in Ullapool.

very nice pub. get there early for your evening meal, then you can get a window seat and have your dinner with wonderful views of the loch as you eat your meal you can watch the sun set.

Slipped in for a pint and found the place well stocked with customers enjoying their food and drink. Live folk band playing good music. Great place to visit and nice views out the windows.

We had a window table overlooking the loch which was great (providing a car hasn't parked outside the window to block the view!). Mussel starter and langoustine starters were good. We both wanted fish pies but were told there was only one left. Unfortunately, other diners also requested fish pie - why they weren't told when given the menu is... More

The langoustines were shocking, dried up, tasteless, and a very small amount of edible food. The staff were pleasant and trying hard, but quite unequipped to deal with our complaint. We sat between a very loud fan and a constantly banging door. The staff were extremely disorganised, and the taking of orders was extremely slow. Altogether a very disappointing experience... More

Firstly the staff were very welcoming, we had our meal in the bar and it was amazing. The mussels were to die for as was the fish and chips.

I had a large platter of delicious local langoustines, salad and potatoes. The service and vibe were really good.
