This wee pub in Crawfordjohn does exactly what it says on the tin - phone ahead for hot wholesome food and excellent personal service. Lovely coal fire. Couldn't ask for more.

A small, local Pub which served a good array of pub food, with a roaring fire and cheerful landlord. We had scampi and steak pie and found both really tasty with generous portions. So good we have booked to return for a family gathering!

We loved this brilliant village pub which we found by chance whilst staying at Days Inn Abington. Very clean and friendly, attentive and welcoming host, and the food is excellent and very reasonably priced. Well worth a visit.
