Early 19th-century former house, licensed since 1857, that has evolved from a traditional terraced pub into a small town hotel in recent years. The low-ceilinged public bar on the right is separated from the snug on the left by a low part-glazed partition. The modest back gantry on the right is old but the one on the left is modern and the bar counter has a 1950/1960s ply frontage. The public bar has original tongue-and-grooved panelled walls, a good Bernard's mirror, 1950/1960s fixed seating and a curious small table with wooden sides that was designed for a ship.

At the rear in an extension is a lounge with a bar counter at least 40 years old, a highly decorative back gantry that has come from another pub and a fine fireplace. The small snug on the left has a 1930s tiled fireplace but the bar counter is modern. In a recent expansion to the left there is a new dining room. One of few pubs in Scotland to have always sold real ale, it has appeared in practically every Good Beer Guide.
