First stop out of the station, however no guest on and not prepared to lower ourselves to GK so didn't stop, hence no rating.

Old pub on the hill up from the station. On first entrance it didn't feel especially wonderful, with a sort of open plan, vaguely modernised-a-while-back feel, but having settled down with a pint the place grew on me a bit. Certainly wouldn't object to going back, but wouldn't make a special trip. Still as below - beers from GK range, food, occasional music, outdoor area etc.

Although this is a Greene King pub and the layout and décor is pretty basic I still enjoyed my visit and supped a nice couple of pints of Guinness. There were also four standard GK ales available along with Davenport's Highland Whisky Ale and a standard draught selection. As has been mentioned in previous posts, food is served at very reasonable prices and although I didn't eat I saw some being served and it looked good value for money.

My visit was very early afternoon so it wasn't that busy, but there were a few aged locals smoking away in the small paved beer garden that has some covered seating for wetter days.

There are no TVs, but the background music was ok and played at a nice volume. I spotted a sign in the toilet for folk nights every Thursday evening in the large function room that is available for hire.

The maid was very friendly and I would go back in here if passing again.
