Cosy and steeped in history as the name suggests, staff pleasant and the place was busy so it is well frequented by the locals and visitors alike. Clean and tidy and good choice of beers.

Food was typical Scottish fare mainly out of a freezer ie. frozen fish, chicken goujons, and vegetables. The haggis used for the nacho's was pretty good. Service was very friendly and prompt. If your looking for cheap and cheerful then this is for you.
