Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Mathers Bar

Interesting pub with a Camra national inventory heritage that - slightly surprisingly - was initially built as a bank. Just one room, with a high moulded ceiling, very traditional furniture and decoration, and a very impressive bar-back. Four of the six handpumps were in use, including a 'house' pale ale, Deuchars IPA, and Boughton Wee Jock 80/- (£4.30).

Another very tasty CAMRA-listed (nationally important) interior, a single room with a huge magnificent dark wood and mirrored bar gantry alongside a fabulous cream and maroon ceiling with boxes and circles alongside some intricate Wedgewoodesque frippery and a bit of stained glass. Four cask; Caledonian Deuchars, Haviestoun Bitter & Twisted, a pub-badged brew of unknown provenance and Broughton HOPO (NBSS 2, muted and flabby). Shame about the beer, as the pub itself is worth a visit just to enjoy the interior. Seems like I’m not the only one to have encountered sub-par beer here. 6.5

A typical and very good example of a Scottish high street bar. There were six hand pumps on the bar when I entered, with four beers on, soon to become three when I took my Black Sheep Best Bitter back to change for Sharps Doom Bar. (The others were Caledonian Deuchars IPA and Williams Bros Birds & Bees.) Despite my problem with the beer, I wouldn't mind coming here again.
