I have worked here for about 6 months, and yes I will eat here, and have drinks. The drinks are nice, and cold. Food is fantastic. The waitresses are very friendly, and welcomes every single Person who walks in the door.

We arrived at the Pub for dinner and walked into a dining room/bar that had no tables and no seats at the bar. The waitresses did not address us for quite a while, in the meantime other people walked in behind us and stood there as well. We decided to go up to the bar and grab a couple of... More

We stopped at this pub for lunch one day and were so glad we found it. They have many excellent beers on tap and some of the finest scotch whiskies available. The food was authentic, right down to the Haggis.

I Love the Blue Cheese Burger. It's always wonderful. Great quality Blue cheese with tons of flavor. Paired with a Switchback, mouth watering as I type this. Great service, love the kilts!Maclaomainn's also gives to many charitable and community groups. Just another reason to go there.

Hard to say which was better, the food or the ambience, but they were both great! Chester is a beautiful little Vermont town and this restaurant fits in perfectly with the surroundings. Only complaint was that it was a drafty inside, turning the heat up a few degrees would make it perfect.

We were staying in town so we were able to walk to the pub. The place is beautiful inside, the beer selection was fabulous and the food was spectacular. We went on a Sunday evening and they had a football game on the big screen. The service was great too.

I've been here twice now. The food is always great and they have at least 6 actual Scottish beers (that are delicious I might add) on tap. It's the only place I've had Belhaven wee heavy on tap and it was amazing. The only meal my wife and I had that wasn't terribly exciting was the tattie barkers. It's hotdogs... More

The food here is amazing and very authentic. You will not be disappointed - the beer is outstanding as well and service is spot on! It's a small place and fills up rapidly on the weekend but during the week it is not too crowded and you can usually get a spot at the bar if you are a small... More
