A popular stand-up drinkers' pub built 1898 with a U-shaped original counter that takes up an incredible amount of space compared to the size of the room. The vestibule entrance has doors with colourful 'Bar' windows to the left and right, but nowadays you enter via the half doors with 'Family Bar' panels in front of you. In the late 1980s, the two partition walls that formed the off-sales were removed to create a completely walk-around bar. The panelled walls are original, as are the Victorian tiled fireplace and the bench seating opposite, but the island gantry was replaced in 2003 and other seating renewed. Other original features include a large frieze of Fleur-de-lys and thistles all around the room, two large Geo. Younger's mirrors, and another for Highland Queen whisky.

Carrying on through a wood-lined arch, the panelled passage has another large Highland Queen whisky mirror. Further on is the refurbished lounge at the rear with original panelling and a genuine Victorian fireplace, but this was imported in the late 1980s. There are also two of the finest surviving stained and leaded window screens in Scotland - one for Campbell Hope & King Ales and another for James Brown Wines and Spirits.
