The brewery is always clean and tidy with a nice, friendly atmosphere. The staff are welcoming and help in any way they can. They do quiz nights for charity which are always a laugh and most of the time sell out! the food is great and good priced for decent pub grub. Highly recommend visiting

We found them friendly, helpful and very... More

Went for lunch with a few friends here, it was first class, the decor of the pub was great with lots of things dedicated to the brewery before it was a pub, pub was clean and tidy, staff were excellent and we got served quickly, food was excellent. Would recommend to all who visit Alloa.

Very good service, a bit too loud with different sports programmes on TVs in every corner. Food very average, couldn't chew my roast beef and roasties were frozen.

Thanks for taking the time to review us on Trip Advisor with your comments, we are glad you enjoyed the service but disappointed that you felt the food was average. I must apologise if your Roast Dinner was not up to standard on this occasion and glad that you have brought this to my attention so I can rectify this.... More
