Old style side street pub in the West end with decor to match. Usual pub grub fair which was delivered speedily, and very nice too. Very busy but that's the location.

Service and atmosphere were lovely. This was a work Christmas do and the food was terrible. It all seemed to come from a poor quality microwave dinner. The wine was barely drinkable. For the price I would expect better. Nothing came as advertised, very disappointing.More

A very nice place to chill with friends and choose from a range of ales and beers as well as the usual premium lagers. Great service and great environment to chat, or eat, or soak up the history of this building.
