Great menu and cater for Gluten Free. Had Chicken and Haggis. Wow it was a good portion and the whiskey sauce really added to it. Worth a visit.

Good variety of pub food. The burgers are especially nice. I had a plain burger which was really tasty. My son and husband had a haggis one (yuck)which they loved. The variety of beers on tap were amazing. Especially liked the 6x one.
