Dine with Us


Our lounge bar, à la carte restaurant and beer garden

At the Ulbster Arms Hotel and Lodges we offer several options for your dining experience. If you’re looking for relaxed or family-friendly dining, the Lounge Bar offers traditional comfort. Our à la carte restaurant, Beat 4, presents a formal yet relaxed setting. We also host occasional BBQs in the beer garden. You’re sure to have your appetite satisfied when you dine with us.

The Lounge Bar for relaxed dining

Lunch served from 12:00 until 14:00. Dinner served from 16:00 until 20:30.

Relax and enjoy our latest seasonal menu and daily specials in the traditional comfort of our Lounge Bar, which features a beautifully carved fireplace from a Dutch galleon ship. This offers a more relaxed and family-friendly alternative to our Beat 4 restaurant, with the same high quality, locally-sourced ingredients and excellent service. It's a welcome retreat from the crisp outdoors in autumn and winter with its roaring fire and cosy booth seating. Spread over a couple of levels, you can find the perfect spot in which to enjoy your meal.

Enjoy specially curated daily menus in our Beat 4 restaurant, so named as it sits opposite Beat 4 on the River Thurso, which is well known as one of the best salmon fishing rivers in Scotland. With its high ceilings, stunning antler chandeliers, plush carpets and colour scheme that’s been carefully chosen to reflect the hotel’s natural environment, Beat 4 is a traditional Highland space in which to enjoy the creations from our kitchen. Our friendly team will find you the perfect table. The à la carte menu is sourced and produced daily by our team of chefs, so advance booking of a minimum of 48 hours is recommended.
