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

Love this pub! Good "comfort" food at a reasonable price and nice selection of beers, ciders, spirits, and wines. Personable and knowledgeable bartenders and the restaurant is open 'till 9pm on weeknights! Excellent for us who eat late in a small town...

The atmosphere is fantastic, they have a great selection of beers on tap, their food is amazing pub food and you can get real haggis here. You can tell the locals from the out of towners, but its a place for all. A great pub indeed!

Loved this place. Bartender in kilt was chipper and kind. Authentic Scottish food and good vibe. I had a great caesar salad with bacon and a baked potato. Delish.

My wife and I came upon MacLaomainn's Scottish Pub while wandering the back roads of Vermont. A Scottish Pub in Chester, VT? We had to try it. The pub has really recreated the look and feel of an authentic neighborhood pub. Once we walked in, we were greeted by the owner wearing a kilt, and soccer was playing on the... More

We had dinner at this wonderful Scotish pub. I had Auld Reekie Stew, and it not like any stew I had ever had before. However, it was delicious, and if I lived in the area, I would be eating it quite regularly.

Ok, my excellent rating had a lot to do with the atmosphere, good selection, and price combined. Really how many places can you get Mince and Tatties?? Many Scottish specialties, and although I don't have a lot of experience with this type of food, everything my husband and I had was really tasty! And not expensive! Will defiantly go back... More

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