About the Pub

A cosy and convivial pub that retains many features from its days as a Victorian wine merchant and decorated with whisky barrels. Considering its size, it offers an impressive range of real ales. It also specialises in malt whisky, with a large selection behind the bar. If the front bar is busy, try the small room at the back. Lunches are mainly traditional Scottish fare. Children are not admitted. Dogs welcome outside food service hours.
