Well known for their real ales, the Grog and Gruel champion Scottish craft beer from independent breweries. Their cask conditioned ales list includes a number from the Williams Bros, Cairngorm, the Isle of Skye Brewing Co, Glenfinnan Brewery and Houston, among others. For something stronger, they also stock over 100 single malts. On the food side, the same menu can be had in the bar or the restaurant; it’s rib-sticking pub food, showing an effort to source their meat from local, or at least Scottish, farms.
