Description: This bar/restaurant haz a lovely feel about it. There is a small bar with an open fire. Speciality food..pies. A variety of pies to choose from including vegetarian fillings. The supplier provides the uncooked pies and the bar cook them. We were told exactly how long we would need to wait before we could eaf right from the start. All pies served with chips anx and cost about £7.25ish. Beans and gravy cost extra. Tbe pies are to die for.

Sometimes when 'characters' get picked out in these reviews you are in for disappointment when you meet the real person...but I feel I can confidently add my vote to those that have gone before that cite being in Robbie's presence as an unforgettable experience.
He is entertaining, cheeky, quick to serve and even quicker with his stories and one liners. All that and great value tasty pub food that I can't believe anyone thinks is over priced.
So unless you are very prudish, so sensitive that you take offence at almost anything - or that you don't like pies - get yourselves along to the Craig Bar!

We own a small B & B a few miles away. We have often referred our guests to the Craig Bar & they always return satisfied so we thought we had better try the place ourselves. If you like pie & chips then this is the place to be, first class selection, good portions & not expensive.
Beryl usually looks after the food while Robbie runs the bar & helps with the meal service. A real 'multi-tasker' as he will frequently tell you. Do not try to match his quick wit & cheeky banter because you never get the better of him.
This place has real character & atmosphere.
Highly recommended unless you are the shy & retiring type.
Give it a try, you will want to pay a return visit, we have, several times!!

We stopped at The Craig Bar to scout it out for a possible dinner on the next night, and were made so welcome that we decided we'd be daft not to return. When we did, we experienced the main reasons to visit: superb, gourmet-quality pie and chips, excellent selection of whiskies, but most importantly, the proprietors: Beryl is lovely and Robbie is excellent fun, as well as being a great host! Exactly how informal pub dining should be.

Standing room only at this place, obviously very popular. At time of arrival, no where to sit. Had to wait for drinks, appeared that they needed more staff. Unable to eat here, but the pies did look good, although slightly expensive for what it was.
