One of only a handful of places open during out NorthCoast500 trip, but we are glad it was. We visited on a Sunday afternoon, so full roast dinners (which looked great) were very much the order of the day. We only wanted a light lunch, but fortunately the staff were very accommodating, offering a full lunch menu for us to... More

Busy restaurant (often a good sign..), even in winter, in the pretty and welcoming little town of Ullapool. Food was very nice. Service as well. The waitress recommended me their special: a perfectly cooked hake, served with boiled potatoes and a very refined lemon sauce. Definitely the best pub food we had during our whole trip in Scotland!

a lovely friendly pub with decent real ale and excellent food. Cullen skink and fish and chips were good. Good for popping in for a pint as well as for an excellent dinner. Friendly staff too and an impressive collection of whiskies. Didn't stay in hotel so cannot comment

By wife and I stayed on the other side of Loch Broom and this was a good place to eat before driving back to our B&B. Good food and good service.

A friendly and popular venue for meeting, drinking or eating. The Arch has a good menu with special deals and also can cater for private functions. It can be busy right through the holiday season and has live music some evenings. It is also one of the fringe venues during the annual "Loopallu" music festival. To top it off, its... More

Ate here twice for evening meals whilst on holiday during the last week in January. Sampled the "specials" board and main menu and both meals were delicious. Chicken in paprika sauce and loin of venison were both delicious. Very friendly staff. Would definitely recommend. Didn't need to book in January, but would imagine necessary in summer.

I'm over working in the area, decided to pop out of the digs for a wee bit of dinner and a pint. Certainly did not expect the fantastic lochinver haddock to be as good as it is. I'm struggling to think of a time I have ever had a better fish. Lovely light batter and cooked to perfection. Beautiful

Fortunately we came across the Arch Inn after visiting four other establishments in the area. I'm so glad we did . The staff were welcoming and friendly and finally we found some real ale on offer. We were invited to try each beer before purchase too. When we enquired about the availability of a table in the separated dining area,... More
