The bar has recently been renovated inside, and the result is a very homely, traditional Scottish pub feel inside. It reminded me immediately of the local village Smiddy pub that my family took me to every Sunday for lunch or dinner (the type that did pate, steak sandwiches, death-by-chocolate cake. That was my order for a good 12 years). A magic wee trick, where it will both appeal to tourists looking for something very Scottish-y but isn’t OTT or a faux-Scottish feel, and instead recreates the cosy Scottish pubs of old.
There is a very large dining area, for a bar. The bar area itself is quite small and I can imagine would get crowded if many people tried to stay here all at once. So I can imagine they’ll be looking more for families for dinner, and larger groups, than a large group of mates all meeting for a pint. But that’s just fine.
