Good pub / venue. Open until 3am every night, has live music and affordable drinks. Didn't try food so can't comment on that but would recommend if you're looking for somewhere open late mid week as we were.

It is said to be one of the best place to enjoy typical Scottish folk.. Unfortunately, maybe because it was Tuesday, only very young people playing solo guitar... and singing. Not bad, but not what I was told Muy poca gente en el local, chic@s...More
