“great food and staff 2012”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

I'm from Scotland but now live in the states. Last year was my first time to tobermorry. I fell in love with it so came back again this past Sept. Most of my evening meals were at the the pub having their lamb which is my favorite. My last night there, they didn't have lamb on the menu, but the lady said she would make it for me since i was leaving the next day. they are so nice there and you always meet lots of nice people from all over that are on holiday also.i will be back next year for sure

We had the scampi and drinks for lunch. Recommended by the local taxi driver, the locals in the pub were friendly, and the staff was nice. Decent pub food.
