The pub is a real gem. I dropped in with a small group of friends after a walk in the Pentlands one winter afternoon. The small and cosy public bar has a warm coal fire at one end with a couple of tiny inglenook seats, a collection of other comfy tables and chairs and a long bar. We were welcomed by a cheerful landlord who proudly told us about a variety of real cask conditioned ales from local craft breweries, along with a selection of more conventional drinks and a fine selection of whiskies and gins. Undecided which to try, he then offered us a taster ‘on the house’ to help us make our minds up before selling us several fine, well-looked after pints of super local ale.
