Gastropub
“Cute, traditional bar with a good selection of draught beers and traditional music on Tueday nights. For a more intimate dining experience, head downstairs to their restaurant whose motto is "Think global eat local" so as you can imagine their menu is rather varied but using the finest Scottish produce. These guys also have haggis on their menu for those brave enough to try it. Go on!”
