Will Larter left this review about The Hermitage Bar

A corner bar that has been opened out as much as possible, a couple of massive pillars keeping the building from collapsing. Although there are three hand pumps, the offering of Caledonian Deuchars IPA and 80/- was so underwhelming that I opted for one of the keg beers instead: Joker IPA from Williams Brothers of Alloa (there was also Harviestoun Bitter and Twisted which I know from experience is a pale shadow of the cask version). The lass behind the bar was shocked to see me trying to disperse the excess carbonation by stirring my beer with my pen, and came out to offer me a straw instead. A few minutes in the microwave might have made it a more drinkable temperature, too. (This beer is pretty good in bottles, though, as long as it's not been kept in a fridge.) This is clearly a popular bar, but it didn't quite tickle my erogenous zones.
