Homophobic misogynist serving at the bar. Made completely unacceptable and highly offensive comments and lewd gestures to me while I was queuing. Leaving before being served was not soon enough. He seemed amused as he announced loudly in front of other customers “I think I...More

If you love pies and chips this is the best for miles around. Good bear and freshly cooked produce the landlord is a right character. RAF pictures and artefacts are added interest.

Great pub but I have only four stars because the only thing in the menu are meat and veggie pies. I had the chicken one and it was delicious.

What more do you need on a chilly Highland evening but a delicious homemade savory pie, crispy, thick cut chips and a wee dram? Thats all they serve here. Hubs had a mushroom pie and I had steak. Both hot and flaky and totally nummy.
