This is a nice little in with outstanding views of the harbour and Loch Broom. That's the good bit. Well actually the food, being pub grub, was actually very good. I had beer battered fish and plum crumble and custard and it was of good quality. The fish and batter was particularly good. The service however was very poor. The staff lacked personality and the attitude required for good customer service. To order sweets I had to get the menu myself and then make concerted attempts to get the staff to come to the table. It would have been obvious to the casual observer I wanted to order! Good food let down by very poor service. I wouldn't recommend it for that reason.

Our plan was to get dinner at another place. But seeing the food that was served around us, we decided to stay and weren't disappointed at all. The food was really good an fresh prepared! Tip: try the pork!

The restaurant and bar were buzzing but they did everything they could to accommodate us and we had a great meal. We did not feel hurried.

Four of us arrived around 8pm on a Saturday evening with no no booking but they managed to find us a table without any fuss. The waiter was very friendly and helpful and the food was good pub grub. The Cullen Skink was excellent and the Steak Pie was good. The choice of wine was limited but the quality was fine. Overall a decent, good value meal with friendly service. I'll go back next time I'm in Ullapool.

This seems to be a popular place in Ullapool when we were there it was almost full and the staff was very busy but anyway we didn't have to wait very long to be served. The food was really good, pub-food at it's very best.
