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 off to one side with banquettes. The lounge, with separate door, has three areas, a small snug by the entrance door, an area around the fire and a quieter back area with banquette seating. The late 19th century decorative plaster work which includes a Lincrusta frieze and the snob screen suggest the lounge 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.
