Days like this are seldom found. We hiked in Acadia National Park in the morning then travelled 2 hours down route 1 to Camden, a pretty town on the coast. Thirsty but not hugely hungry we spent a good few hours at the Drouthy Bear. A warm welcome awaits and although no reservations are taken it didn't take too long for a table to come free (we actually sat at the bar, our preference). The scotch eggs were a delight as was the rarebit. We also tried the nanchos with homemade haggis. It was good but not peppery enough for me, I'd probably serve Macsweens and be done with it but that is just being a little too picky. The beer, a Belhaven 90 shilling and a local IPA were in excellent condition. Vast range of whisky for those who are tempted.
I hesitate to call the Droughty Bear a Scottish pub. It most assuredly is, but with a genuine touch, polar opposite to the so-called Irish pubs of New York, a poor facsimile of the real deal. The owner is a Scot as is the barman. I would be tempted to suggest that the Scottish tone be tuned up just a touch, a unique USP so why not?
The pub has a cozy air and other customers friendly and chatty, just the way a good pub should be. We'd strongly recommend a visit even if it's just for a pint or a wee dram.
