Colin reckons this is his favourite pub in town, which is why we went there without him. Poor lamb. I can see the appeal, it’s a straight-forward pub, feels a bit like a local’s bar, relaxed, with a “beer garden” (more like a patio), fireplace, leather seats, sturdy old tables and hooks on the bar.
Three cask ales: Flying Scotsman, Scottish Borders Holy Cow and Caledonian Deuchars. Loads of kegs with one or two less common: Innis & Gunn Original and Lager, Kirin Ichiban, Belhaven Best, Red Stripe, Tennent’s Lager, Stella Artois, Budvar, Addlestone Cider, Williams Sunburst, Guinness.
There are some 50-odd whiskies behind the bar too.
I’m getting complacent, no notes again for the price of the round. It wasn’t particularly expensive or cheap.
I wasn’t paying attention here either, but their web site says they do toasties and that “Friday is pie day”. What more do you need?
Nice fireplace up the back (see right), two TVs showing football when we were in, and a patio out the back which gets the sun in the evening in summer.
