Love the Burgers here. Best around. Nice atmosphere for family or couples. The staff wears kilts too which is fun.

Chicken pie and steak pie were piping hot and good. Portions are not too big. Was ok for us that night, otherwise we would have ordered some dessert. Service was ok. Place is very busy and popular.

after spending a day driving to Ben and Jerry's in northern vt, we headed south back to ur hotel and found this delightful Scottish pub along the way. From smoked salmon with potato skins perfectly prepared to Steak pie with mashed potatoes and Haggis the entire meal was excellent. A bottle of thorny Thistle hard cider topped the meals off....

My wife and I had dinner here during our New England road trip. This is a real pub; no separate dining room. The choices of Scottish fare is more extensive than anywhere we've been outside of Scotland. Everything we had was tasty and well prepared. Service is very friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. The place is really quite small, so unless... More

Choices in Chester are limited, but this small Scottish pub is great. Haggis (as well as a surprising range of other food choices) and a good range of beer on tap. The service is friendly and the food very good. Porch dining is great if weather permits. It’s a small pub so if they’re really busy then service can suffer... More

The extensive menu at this pub was a surprise. A lot of options ranging from normal bar food items to Scottish and English heavier dishes. Great staff and the wine by the glass was actually good! (didn't have high hopes) Recommended it to everyone at my hotel.

I should have known when there was a sign on every table that asked not to give a bad review on social media because anyone can have a "bad day". First the Scotish Ale was very good. The food was very mediocre. Nothing bad, nothing great. The service was the problem. All of the food was served at the same... More
