Situated opposite St Michael's churchyard, where you will find Burns' mausoleum, is this small three-roomed pub that has been little altered in 40 years. It was converted from an early Victorian house into a two-roomed pub with snugs in c.1900. A vestibule entrance leads into the small public bar, which has an original mirrored back gantry with a modern top section. The original bar counter has a panelled frontage probably added in the 1960s and a new top. Prior to 1960s there was a row of three small snugs down the left side and another on the front right. Horizontal panelled walls probably date from the 1960s.

Continuing to the rear, you will find a lounge with fittings from the late 1960s including panelled walls and fireplace. Both the public bar and lounge retain their highly decorative Victorian plasterwork cornices and ceiling roses. Beyond the gents' is a small panelled room brought into use in recent years. Sadly, the good stained and leaded 'ship' front windows have been lost recently.
