We obviusly entered into the non-dog-friendly part of the establishment because we were quickly and politely ushered through behind the bar. The food was lovely but a bit expensive for what it was. It was friendly but seemed that was for service rather than natural....More

This pub was a great find on our holiday to Fortrose. Initially you might be put off by the pub's dim lighting, and quirky eclectic decor and mismatched furniture. But in reality it is a real gem of a pub. Lots of choice for real...More
