Great Wee bar run by Pat and his team, special mention to Dave for putting up with our late nights, bad singing and pouring us some generous half's. See you all next year!

Yes I would say this pub is mostly couples and groups of people. The crowd there were very friendly as well as the owner and bar staff so I would go and have a drink there, you might enjoy it
