About the Pub

A recreation of a classic Scottish one roomed alehouse dedicated to traditional Scottish air pressure dispense and upright drinking. The real ales can be from anywhere in the UK and beer festivals are held in January and June. The walls are festooned with original brewery mirrors and the superb gantry does justice to an award-winning selection of about 310 single malt whiskies and international bottled beers. Pies and bridies are available at lunchtime. Children are not admitted.
