We ate here every evening of our Ullapool stay. Delicious holiday n. We ate lobster which was fabulous, the burger another evening was superb as was the fish and chips and pork belly. The staff were friendly and helpful and service good.

Great food and atmosphere. We were there on a Thursday night, there was music in the bar and the restaurant looked busy. Good menu. Excellent whisky selection.

I asked for a recommendation whilst staying at the Tamarin Bed & Breakfast, who said the Arch Inn was the "Stand out" place to eat in Ullapool. The restaurant atmosphere, tables and chairs makes it feel more like an extension of the bar than a luxurious restaurant but is in keeping with what you expect in the Highlands of Scotland.... More

Visited the Arch Inn restaurant in mid - January, on recommendation, and wasn't disappointed! Dining area was modern, clean & airy, we were offered a choice of seats - granted, they weren't busy, 5 other tables occupied. Drank a crackin' pint of An Teallach cask, before feeding on what's probably the best Cullen Skink, we've ever had, followed by hot-smoked... More

This rating is not about the food because we didnt get any. We were in Ullapool to celebrate our daughter's 30th birthday. I phoned ahead to book a table for 5 at the Arch Inn. They don't take bookings! Imagine! A restaurant that won't let you book. However, I was assured we should be fine for a table for 5... More

We saw in the review that it is usually packed and you have to wait long before getting a table. We visited 2 days after Christmas having driven from Dingwall and found the place all to ourselves! Food was above average and price was cummensurate to the quality. All in all worth a visit if you do not have to... More

My husband and I visited here with my brother. There was a great atmosphere and everyone was friendly and welcoming. After a game of pool, we sat down for a meal of beer battered haddock. What a feed! Perfectly cooked and good value for money, our compliments to the chef. Will definitely visit here again when we return to Ullapool.

Thank Lynne K
