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)!
