Popped in with my two hungry sons. We all had the Arch burger. Really enjoyed it. Both lads where no longer full. Was lucky enough to get a window table. Great view out. Staff really friendly. Will go again!

Came here several times over our week’s holiday and it was always the failsafe to return to in Ullapool- consistently good food, well managed bar and good music, clean toilets and relaxed but busy atmosphere. Definitely the best bar in town at the moment.

Really nice food, limited veggie selection (1 dish). Was a mistake with or order and it didn’t appear for a long time. Staff admitted to mistake and offered free drink or desert as recompense. Would visit again (if the veggie dish was different).

The fact that this pub is constantly busy speaks for itself. Turnover in the dining room was constant with no table empty for more than a few minutes. That said we did not have to wait long before our freshly battered fish and chips arrived....More

Didn't catch the food! But what a party and great atmosphere during Loopallu. There on the Friday night! Acordian and dancing! A great community pub!

I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere in this pub/restraunt. The food was amazing and I recommend the Cullen skink soup. The interior of the Arch is a bit dated and could do with a bit redecorating. I was in for food though and it was everything...More
