We had been told to get there early as it fills very quickly.We had a lovely meal and would happily go again.The pub atmosphere made it relaxing and judging by the international clients it was very popular

OK, so you can't book ahead without pitching up in person, but it works fine in practice so long as you're not in a hurry (and why would you be in a hurry in Ullapool?). Arrive early, get a time slot, return at least 15 mins beforehand for a drink and bit of craic in the friendly bar and the... More

Arrive early (we arrived 5.30) to get a table and sample the great selection of sea food as well as meat and veggie dishes. Wonderful food, great atmosphere and highly recommended. Service excellent and Well worth a visit.

Very busy restaurant, we didn't have a reservation and had to wait around an hour for a table, however the pub has a nice vibe and the time passed quickly, food was good, had Cullen skink starter, herb crusted salmon main and shared a sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Would recommend but advise booking beforehand.

As most reviewers have commented, they don't take bookings but take down your name and seat you on a first come basis. On busy weekend nights this might take a while so be forewarned. That being said, how can you go wrong hanging out at the bar with its wide selection of adult beverages soaking up the atmosphere while you... More

Called here for lunch today, nice big pub with tables outside and on the front by the water. Good menu, even though we only sandwiches they were all fresh with good quality bread. Chips a must, delicious. Service was a little slow but in fairness it was peak lunch time and busy

It was not outstanding and it is a kind of pub. We had an enormous portion of fish and chips, made as it should be.

Had a drink, wanted to eat but didnt take bookings. They have a ridiculous system of putting your name on a list and you stay until its called. I guess its a great way to boost bar takings! If you arrive after 7.00pm forgrt it, list is full and you wont get on it. Had a drink and staff were... More

A warm welcome, great food and a restaurant with a good atmosphere! Listen to the reviews and go at 5pm for opening to guarantee a table. Try the mussels and specials board items. We loved them. Ate here 3 times this week! Definitely the best place in Ullapool!
