Arrived on boat from Lewis, checked website on the way over and very impressed with seafood options ( langoustines/ sharing platters/ smoked fish etc) so was looking forward to real treat at FBI. When we got there, were made to stand around whilst waiting staff bustled around us - even though we had booked table - waitress then showed us... More

Good find. Snug little restaurant with an open lit fire. The food was amazing and great value. The staff were very friendly. Would definitely eat here again

We enjoyed a few drinks on the first evening in Ullapool and returned on the final night for a few more jars. The real ale is very good although not a great selection. There is a wonderful open fire for those cooler evenings. Dogs allowed. Very friendly staff.

We came for lunch here after several months away from Ullapool and were pleased to find that standards were consistent. The inn is in a superb location right on the loch-side. We had a window table and had marvellous views especially as there were snow-clad mountains in the distance. At lunchtime the inn serves soups and a range of casual... More

I like this pub. I know the hotel has lousy reviews. I see that the food may be a bit hit and miss. But if you want to sit in a pub that feels like a big warm welcoming room with a fire, a bar with very striking barmaid, and an amazing view from the window, I think it has... More

Food was OK with some of the specials sold out - they were the draw for us but 'settled' for other menu items. Leans towards local seafood cuisine as you might expect. Selections were nothing special - distinctly average. Dining area was adjacent to smelly toilets which wafted in every time someone opened the door. For this reason alone would... More

We have eaten here on several occasions and always found the food to be good, especially the fish chowder and other fish dishes, so in general I would always recommend it. However on this particular occasion we went for dinner, entered the bar and were met by a really strong smell of urine. We mentioned it to the lady at... More
