Nice place with a wide range of different whiskies (ask for the top-shelf-whiskies). Always loved having a chat with Tom. Come for the music-nights!

Quite simply, everything you could want in a pub. Incredible whisky collection, great atmosphere, friendly staff, and even old fashioned porcelain toilets. Never had a bad experience and would highly recommend a drink there.
