Busy and friendly with spectacular Victorian décor, a marvellous range of real ales and good food

Our readers always enjoy their visits here, partly for the splendid Victorian décor but also for the ten well kept real ales. It's opulently excessive, with ornate painted plasterwork on the lofty ceiling, dark mahogany fittings, heavy swagged velvet curtains and a busy patterned carpet. Tables and stools are lined up along towering arched windows opposite the bar, where knowledgeable, efficient staff serve quickly changing beers such as Bombardier, Fyne Ales Jarl, Loch Lomond Southern Summit, Orkney Dark Island, Stewart Pentland IPA and Swannay Orkney IPA. Also, ten wines by the glass, 50 malt whiskies, a dozen rums and a dozen gins; TV and background music. The snug upstairs gallery restaurant, with contrasting modern décor, gives a fine dress-circle view of the main bar.
