“Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

Came upon this wonderful wee pub during a walk along the Fife Coastal trail and dropped in for a drink. Barmaid greeted us as we arrived and was very friendly. The service was excellent. Bar has a very pleasant atmosphere and we had to drag ourselves away to continue our walk. This is a hidden gem and should not be missed.

What a great wee place. Came here to watch Andy Murray win the tennis & had a great time listening to the locals' banter, enjoying very well kept Deuchars served by a really pleasant barmaid, and disposing of the reprocessed beer in an immaculate loo. Sorry if that's too much info! You'll go a long way to find a better pub.

This is a lovely little pub. When we were in it was busy enough for enjoyment but not overcrowded. The barmaids were friendly and helpful and service very good. The local population made us very welcome and helped with bright spots in the locality.

Room Tip: Do pay a visit if you are in the area

Absolutely first class pub, which deserves all the previous accolades. It was a particular pleasure to have a drink and reminisce with my old pal Joe, the landlord, whom I had not seen for almost thirty years. The locals themselves were more than welcoming and I thank Bill Mutch for the wooden carvings, which the girls back in Romania were pleased to receive. Overall this hostelry would match any of the best South of the border. It is a credit to Joe and his staff.

I called in here while back packing my way around the Fife Coastal Path. The legs were demanding a good pint.

The atmosphere and welcome of the place was superb - as was the beer.

If you are after a meal, then this is not the place as its pies and toasted sandwiches only on a lunch time.

Real ales that are well looked after and not being surrounded by people who consider them selves so important that they can't be parted from their mobile phone for a moment make this place worth a visit.

This is a truly great wee pub. Always a couple of real ales. Genuine locals. Superb smokeootery if fags are your thing. Wonderful wood burner blasting out the heat in winter. Service low key but genuinely friendly. Comfortable seating, nice clean loos, railway memorabilia. Rivals many English village pubs. I don't give 5s lightly.
