Always welcoming and friendly, with a huge selection of beers and ciders. Great food too - cheese boards, loaded Motherchips, good selection of traditional crisps and bars of chocolate. Lovely atmosphere.

Went for a quick drink but what a choice!! Not only their own but loads of local beer and a great Scottish stout as well. Live band and very good chips to go with the beer. Go while away a few hours ...
