We started of with a few genuine Scottish Ales, which were excellent. The owner was our waiter who was wearing his kilt. The food was very good. I had something basic but my friend tried the real Scottish choices and she lived it.

We had lunch here and started with soup. Both the tomato cream and cock-a-leekie was excellent. The mince and tatties were also great.

Interesting and unusual beers on tap; Wee Heavy is my fave. There is haggis if you want to give it a try. I enjoy there steak pie with fresh carrots on the side. Not your typical bar food.
