My wife and I called in for one drink last Sunday and stayed until closing time. Very cosy bar. Great music - the 2 guys singing could sing anything. No guitars! Thus unusual but very good. Very casual atmosphere. Worth a visit.

Wandered in one night intending to have one drink, but ended up closing the bar. The two fellows playing were just fantastic! They can play anything...country, traditional. So much fun.

Love this pub. Live music nearly every night and a wide selection of whisky. The barmen know their whisky and are very friendly. I will definitely be back.
