Had a couple of days away to celebrate our anniversary. Having surveyed the menu before travelling, I was very much looking forward to tucking into oysters and mussels etc. Then received a phone call informing us that no food whatsoever was available from the hotel....I’ve never stayed in a hotel that has no meals for their guest before. I guess Brexit and Covid-19 are responsible for this.More

Great pub with a couple of real ale pumps and decent beer and spirits selection, food looked good and restaurant was always packed and booking is recommended everywhere in Ullapiol due to small selection of venues

Everything fairly good about this but for the sirloin steaks, wow, the quality was shocking , tuff chewy and hard to cut with a steak knife, says it all.

As always a good meal at the Arch although this time it was a bit more expensive. The Arch Whisky tasting platter is excellent.

We had originally booked in the restaurant but had to take our dog at the last minute. Although they were fully booked for the bar and restaurant they rang another guest and asked if they would swap with us which was excellent service. The food...is good honest home cooked food and the portions are very generous. Lovely place and lovely staff would recommend booking well in advance as eating options in ullapool with pets are very limited.More

We stayed and eaten at the Arch Inn a few years ago, we were looking for someone to eat in Ullapool after our ferry crossing, we booked the Arch Inn as on our previous visit the food had been very good. On this occasion, we...had ordered cider battered fish and chips, it arrived and was no way cider battered, it was breaded and tasted like it a mass produced product you could buy from a supermarket, our other choice was the monkfish was just ok. Staff are nice, but overall we would not return in the furure.More

Wonderful restaurant wonderful food wonderful service. We had made a reservation but had a mix up with times. Fortunately the staff were able to accommodate us without too much trouble which was so very kind . The food was divine. Cullen skink,smoked salmon ,ham hock...and soup of the day followed by monkfish for 3 and a GF paneese and veg. And then Cranachan, ice cream, posset and cheese and bix . Well worth travelling 487 miles from Snowdonia in Wales. Loved every minuteMore

Starters were excellent, local smoked salmon and baked beetroot but overpriced. I see this in a lot of places though so not specific to here. Mains were very good too but not outstanding. Despite booking over 2 weeks in advance we were seated in bar...area which was not ideal.More

Sadly having looked forward to eating here left feeling disappointed. White wine warm. Food was acceptable but peas with my fish were over microwaved like bullets. I don’t I would return.

I went with dogs and sat outside but they make you pay upfront for the food. We got hair in the fish and got told we were lying about it and no discount for having to leave half the meal. If I didn’t pay up front I would... More

Restaurant reservations are only available to resident guests - It is literally turn up and wait for a table unless you get there early between 5 and 6pm when tables seem to be readily available are.
