This is a place for locals who all seem to know each other. Seems like it's okay to vape inside. If you're not a smoker stay away.

I visited with friends for a couple of drinks, and had a great time speaking with the staff. However, the pub is a bit worn and there were a few "interesting" characters frequenting the establishment. Definitely better pubs to visit in Kirkcaldy town centre.

We both have visited this very clean, cosy, and comfortable establishment a few times when in the area, the bar staff always appear attentive and pleasant, the walls of the lounge are covered in some interesting memorabilia.

On the high street, easy to find, nice and warm place. I enjoyed just a couple of ciders but it was nice. Nice style furniture, typical place to enjoy a drink with your friends
