See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

A choice selection of real ales, mainly Scottish, beckon with at least six handpumps on all the time when you walk in through the front door, with another four the other side at busier times of the year. The main bar has a stylish centre gantry, however the iconic island bar (CAMRA listed) is otherwise unchanged, surrounded by a spittoon and there is even talk of sawdust returning!

Mostly standing only but popular with tourists and those who know their ales! The restaurant next door has plenty of seating for hearty meals all day.

Phone / tablet out of juice? There is a USB "tower" to top up the charge, but you may need the connecting cable.
