Saw this pub advertised in a local magazine. It is very quaint with the perfect decor. Staff were very welcoming and helpful, the menu had traditional and varied choices.

I love it when they do their haggis pie - I love haggis and this pie is wonderful. The staff are friendly and they have nice cider on tap.

We booked, slightly concerned at a couple of unfavourable reviews. Judging on our own previous visits, we were perplexed. We needn't have been, this place is as welcoming and as good as it ever was and there are no better pubs in the area. Genuinely...More
