Came here for a drink on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Decent range of beers. Small terrace but you can only use it if you can get a table due to local rules.

We serve what we love - quality beers from around the world and high-calibre home-cooking.

We also have a passion for live music and regularly play host to some of the most talented bands in Scotland (and occasionally from farther afield).

But most importantly, we believe in a high standard of customer service - a welcoming atmosphere, attentiveness and of course, getting your pint in a timely manner (we know you're thirsty)!
