Beautiful alehouse with a large selection of beers of variable distinction. The cask beer is well kept. There seems to be a lack of the very new innovative breweries but that in itself is somehow refreshing.

Good old fashioned boozer with a good selection of cask ales. Beer was in good condition and the staff moderately friendly. Good place to watch football with a decent beer.

Big open pub at a handy place to dive off the bus on the way into town. The clientelle was pretty young when we were in there, bordering on the boisterous, I reckon there was a stag party mustering before setting off. Beers were average in quality, but I did get 3 new ratings in there. Worth a look even if it doesnít blow you away.

Broad selection of draft beers, although the quality varies wildly. Knocked a lot of points off the ambiance as the place is obsessed with footy. Staff polite.

Fine selection, friendly atmsophere, nice beer profile for the pub. But both beers sampled were a bit off, the cellarmanship is not totally up to it.

Iím gonna go meh on this one. The bar itself is gorgeous, a bit open room with a large horseshoe bar. The service is fine. The beer list is varied, and changes frequently, and the house pint is cheap and well-kept. But the condition of the beers is pretty spotty here - thereís almost always something off. Worth a visit, but get a taste before you order. Up the road is a great coffee place, Artisan Roasters.

Traditonal Scottish Bar with 10 handpumps. Beer well cared for and good service. Nice atmosphere. Sports on large screen TVs.

They change the guest ales quite often and the environment is somewhat addictive. We kept going back to this place because itís on the way home and there is something about it that makes it a great place to drink--the atmosphere is conducive to sessions. They occasionally have a nice array including Fyne Ales. Often the guest taps are mediocre or not kept as well as they could, though. I agree about the oversparkling (big pblm in Edinburgh). This pub will remove sparklers if asked, but if itís crowded that might be an issue.

I suppose itís a fairly standard design, but as it was the first time Iíd seen one the massive horseshoe bar was quite interesting. Plenty of quiet nooks tucked about despite being basically one big room. Buttoned-down kind of vibe, in a good way. Ten beers, the majority of which Iíd never heard of. Interesting place, wouldíve liked to have stayed longer.
