The bottle of wine we ordered had sold out but had not been removed from the menu. Food was fine, but service was pedestrian. Over priced for what we got. May be it was a bad night but it wasn't that busy.

We ate here twice during our wonderful week stay in Ullapool. Competent food, mussels and venison, chicken with basil sauce; all very tasty. Not massive portions, room for dessert both times. Dog friendly, our Dobie pup Riba got lots of attention and loved the fuss from staff and customers. Some decent wines, too. Not cheap. But in line with other... More

Having made a reservation to eat here we were shown to a seat in the restaurant area. The bar area appeared to have more atmosphere and we chose to eat there instead. My husband chose a draught beer which wasn't available but the bottle beer substitute was good. Having ordered just a main course the food arrived disturbingly quickly! The... More

Having spent many hours here during previous visits to Ullapool, we were really looking forward to reacquainting ourselves with this place. Found it hard to be specific about why we left feeling a bit disappointed after eating in the early evening. Despite this, we returned for lunch the following day and, I am relieved to say, the coffee, was aromatic... More

Still the place to visit for a coffee, a drink or a meal. Decent food in pleasant surroundings with good, friendly service.

I had high hopes upon visiting this restaurant, as I had read about it on a few websites suggesting a stop when in Ullapool. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. After being seated, the server was rather gruff. We ordered mains, but didn't have wine, as we were still drinking beers from the bar. He abruptly took away our wine glasses, wine... More

We visit Ullapool every summer and top of our list is always the Ceilidh Place. Massive disappointment this year though I'm not sure what has happened to change it so much. The food was decidedly average apart from the prawn bisque which was lovely. The prices are still at the high end though which normally isn't an issue but was... More

The best local beer I've had in a long time. Thought we'd stop off for a quick drink, but stayed for more. The staff were friendly and welcoming and assisted in our local beer selection. Since it was sunny we decided to soak up the atmosphere outside, and even a bowl of water was provided for the dogs!
