Always welcoming and friendly, with a huge selection of beers and ciders. Great food too - cheese boards, loaded Motherchips, good selection of traditional crisps and bars of chocolate. Lovely atmosphere.

Went for a quick drink but what a choice!! Not only their own but loads of local beer and a great Scottish stout as well. Live band and very good chips to go with the beer. Go while away a few hours ...

Great beer gardens, staff are the friendliest most helpful people I’ve met in any pub, or anywhere for that matter. Chips are great and the beer is even better! 10/10
