“Owned and operated by a Scot who really knows how to create community. Has the best beer on tap and whiskey selection anywhere. Great food at reasonable prices. Fish & Chips are delish , as are burgers and salads, pot pie comfort food and even haggis. Outdoor seating in good weather. Fiddle playing on Friday nights and trivia games midweek. No TV. ”
