A conversion from a former café that had stood empty for a few years. This is one of only a small number of such pubs in Scotland and has a simple no frills pub style. It does have a comfortable mix of benches and club chairs. Lots of railway memorabilia on display. Has three handpumps and Fallen Beers are a regular plus other local beer.
Named after Simon Rutherford, the owner, this tiny shop conversion was the first micropub in Scotland. It doesn’t take many drinkers to become crowded! Real ales are drawn right from the casks which are open to view on a gantry behind the bar. One-third pint taster paddles are available. There’s a selection of foreign bottled beers as well as specialist whiskies, gins and wines.
Opened in December 2017. Taken over by Winton Brewery in April 2020. Three of the brewery’s real ales are served along with sour beer range. Rotation of guest ales as well. Also available are gins and whiskies, with plans to improve the wines, rum and vodka options.
