Visited this pub whilst waiting for other friends to arrive . Fortunately England v Scotland was on TV so it got pretty busy and this generated a good atmosphere (although the locals were not happy after the first fifteen minutes or so) which was the saving grace for what was otherwise a pretty average pub

Pub was okay! Okay atmosphere, but the toilets were disgusting! There was no toilet roll and eventually after a number of customers asking they put toilet roll in them! This did however break the ice and get customers talking to one another. Don't know if I would visit here again!!

The service was the worst that we had encountered on our four week visit to Scotland from Australia . We encountered staff who were not interested in carrying out their duties that they are employed to do ie serve customers . We were not the only customers who waited and watched as staff had a long chat with each other... More
