Scotish Pubs can be....different.This is different in the best way, good dinning room, great food, very good beer. But the staff were awesome, especially Megan. Would return here in a heart beat. If you are in the area go, its really good.

We've been here a few times and will come again. Our meals last night - Cajun Chicken, Veggie Curry and the Ribs, - were very tasty and the portion sizes were ample. Well worth checking this place out.
