our beers INCLUDING '1810'

Landlord Colin Fowlie takes great pride in providing an excellent place to stay, eat and drink for locals and visitors alike.

Our 200th anniversary in 2010 was marked with us making our own ale called '1810'. Who knows what beer will be selected to celebrate our 10th anniversary in May 2017. Why not come down and try a pint round the barrel in the warm public bar?
