Brilliant local, with always something going on - especially lots of open mic-type events. Loads of whiskies too!

Extremely pleasant pub with everything you would expect, including Sky Sports. Decent choice, reasonable prices, friendly locals, and very welcoming hosts, what more could you ask for? Recommended.
