This fine example of an unspoiled Edwardian art deco bar is worth visiting for its interior alone; all the fitments in the bar and sitting rooms are beautifully crafted mahogany – gantry, drink shelves, dado panelling and fireplace. Internal doors are all glazed with etched glass. The same family owned it for 90 years, until the present landlord's father bought it in the mid 90s. As well as the cask-conditioned ales, 157 whiskies and imported bottles are offered. A kitchen would be good, but since the pub is listed this is impossible. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own snacks from nearby bakeries. This community pub is home to several clubs and has live Scottish music from time to time on a Tuesday.
