A really lovely pub, with a great friendly atmosphere & a good selection of drinks, including local real ales. Situated a short walk from the Talisker Distillery, I’d recommend a visit before or after their tour! 👍🏻

What could have been a very nice unpretentious pub was spoilt due to an ill fitting door which let all the heat out. The bar staff, who were friendly enough, did nt seem to bother. It's not difficult to a get a door fixed so...More
