We were on the usual January go slow so didn't overdo it, but what was produced was really nice, one salad and a beef olives with veg which was really... More

We booked as a party of 20 for a christmas get together. So often pub food is disappointing, but skinners managed to provide a high quality meal for a reasonable price. The steak pie was excellent and everyone went home happy. Top tip- the stella pints here are so good!

We visited this establishment on our recent trip through the UK. Skinner's is exactly what you would hope for in a country Scottish pub. It was warm and inviting with friendly service from the wonderful staff. It has a good selection of local and international beers, wine and ales. We stayed for dinner and the meals were terrific. The menu... More
