About the Pub

Superb pub run by the same family since 1858. The bar and snug are traditional with a wooden floor, wood panelling and mirrors from defunct local breweries. The attractive gantry is topped with old casks. The more modern lounge opens at the weekend. The real ales, mostly pale and hoppy but usually one darker, change very regularly. CAMRA Scottish Pub of the Year 2018 and winner of many previous awards including CAMRA UK pub of the Year 1997. See the wall of the bar!

NOTE: Return Trays (AKA Autovacs /Beer Economisers) in use.
