Not fancy, but warm, cozy, welcoming and delicious. I tried the haggis to be adventurous and kind of knew what it was, it was delicious. Don't ask what haggis is until after you try it. Heard the stew is amazing.

My husband and I stopped in for drinks while in Chester - great Scottish beer, delicious Scottish hard cider, and wonderful Scottish atmosphere with the owner in his Scottish kilt! So much fun!

Affordable meals, sports channel on a large screen tv, bar and table seating. A bit crowded and loud as bars tend to be.

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.
