A popular pub in the village. Full of locals who were very friendly to visitors. A great choice of hand pulled beers which were conditioned beautifully. Outside seating and smoking area. Lovely staff, really liked the place. It was a proper English pub

We called here just by chance whilst traveling to Scotland. What a lovely little pub. Local beers and good food all at a good price. Friendly service too. We will certainly call again.
