The romantic allure of Bannockburn’s history isn’t evident on a drive past tired-looking blocks of flats into the town itself. But those in the know keep coming back to the snug confines of the Tartan Arms and its restaurant, McQ’s. Fools aren’t suffered gladly in the lounge, but hold your own – and your drink – and you’ll experience the brusque camaraderie of a genuinely traditional Scottish pub that’s belonged to the same family since 1887. McQ’s is a gentler affair, famous for pub grub done well. Homemade steak pie, with its flaky crust and generous chunks of beef, is a highlight.
