We underestimated the demand for deep fried food when we added Chicken Schnitzel and Fries on the menu. Our fryer can only fry 2 portions at once. Your order came through when over 20 people had ordered fried food. We have now purchased a new...More

This is a fantastic wee pub - quaint and cosy inside with exposed oak beams and lots of stuffed animal heads on the walls - full of character. Good selection of beers and the Madness Platter we had for lunch was amazing - so tasty!...More
