This was a new place for us in 2016. The food was authentic Scottish fare and the selection of beer was really fantastic. The owner served us and his attitude was amazing and I can see why he has been successful thus far.

I like the owners so my review is probably slightly biased. I'm not a beer drinker, but have tasted the one that Andrew pumps up from the basement (no CO2) and it was excellent and like the beer I've had in Pubs in the UK....More
