Here you can watch a match literally from anywhere without making an extra effort sitting wise. It is a great spot for both large group and solo visits. The menu offers the expected pub food and the prices are not reflective of the expensive neighborhood this place is located in. The kitchen specializes in rustic dishes, such as fried meat, haggis and giblets veal tails. Drinks wise, it has a large variety of local and European craft beer. The ale selection is also rather impressive, and you can order a pilot — 5 glasses of 0.2l each.
