About the Pub

A recreation of a classic Scottish one-roomed alehouse dedicated to traditional Scottish air pressure dispense and upright drinking. The walls are festooned with original brewery mirrors and the superb gantry does justice to an award-winning selection of about 450 single malt whiskies and international bottled beers. The real ales can be from anywhere in the UK. Beer festivals are held in January and July, along with frequent tap takeovers. Gourmet pies are available 12-5pm. Children are not admitted.
