Very cool place, food was great and staff all really friendly but I wouldn’t stay again as we could hear our neighbours snoring all night and the heating ticking all night meant we couldn’t sleep. Definitly be back for a meal or a drink though

After a few car issues coming up the crown range, we stopped by this wee gem! Firstly I noticed how beautiful the pub was indoor and then was COMPLETELY blown away by how great the staff were. There was a older guy with a beard, younger lady and a nice younger guy. This made me want to stay for a beer so we went outside and the out door area was the most amazing outdoor area I've seen at a bar. 11/10 from me!!!
