See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Recognised by CAMRA as having a nationally important historic interior, this ground floor tenement pub is divided in to two by a fine mahogany counter, gantry with clock and a mirrored snob screen. Small `ticket window` hatches allow customers in the lounge to order drinks without being seen from the public bar. The bar has an alcove with banquettes while the lounge has three areas, a small snug by the door, an area around the fire and a quieter corner with banquette seating. The late 19th century decorative plaster work which includes a Lincrusta frieze and the snob screen suggest the bar once catered for a genteel Victorian clientele. A plaque near the fire place gives further details of the history of this superb pub. There is also a fine Knox of Alloa Brewery mirror.
