Good services, good prices, entertainment and free sandwiches :) Toilets could do with a refubishment right enough but for a wee local it's ok.
I went in here for a couple of drinks during a photography visit to Uphall. Nice place. Bar is open plan with some nice sofa's & fireplace for the winter. There some nice cushions as well with the pub name on them. If wish to stop of for a couple of drinks then i would recommend this place.
really good choice of beers, tasty, staff willing to give free tasters of beer, sandwiches and snacks on game days, live music a blast ...
