About the Pub

Superb pub run by trustees on Gothenburg principles with the profits being returned to the local community.

It is listed on CAMRA's inventory of regionally important historic pub interiors. The large bar area was designed to help miners recover from their day spent in darkness. It is light and airy due to roof lights in a high ceiling supported by arched iron beams.

Very much a community pub with pictures of various local activities and a mining role of honour.

There is also the Lamp Room restaurant and a function room with a large mural depicting the town's mining past on the front of the bar.

The menu offers a good selection of burgers along with a variety of other dishes and simple bar snacks.

Runner up in the CAMRA Lothian Pub of the Year 2020 competition.

Runner up in the CAMRA Lothian 2019 Real Ale Quality award.

NOTE: Alcoholic drinks are served from 11am (12 Sun).
