This bar is slightly smaller on the inside than it looks from outside. On entering it immediately feels homely and welcoming. The peat fire in the corner adds both warmth and atmosphere and the staff are very friendly without being intrusive. Live music on Friday...More

Typical cozy village pub, with ten seats around the bar and a couple of tables/snugs. Nice place to grab a pint and eavesdrop on conversations of the locals.

Dropped in randomly to spend a little time drinking and ended up staying the afternoon. This is a small bar with a fireplace and little seating. There is no food service, so plan on drinking, but isn't that what a pub is for?
