A street corner local owned by Wadworth's, this is a two room pub in the heart of Larkhall with a (very) small courtyard garden at the rear.

The larger of the two bars is an L-shaped affair with some stained glass in the outside windows and in the wooden partitions within the pub. The bar counter dominates the front part, whilst around the corner is an old fireplace with glazed tiling and a dart board. A pile of paperback books was in front of the bar, presumably for punters to swap as well as a few board games next to the bar. The flooring is old wooden boards. Off to the right is a smaller room which has a slightly more contemporary feel with some modern artwork on the walls and cream panelling on the lower part of the walls, but this lacked much atmosphere, perhaps due to the lack of natural light.

The courtyard at the back has wooden decking and housed a couple of tables and some flower pots and troughs, and whilst not unpleasant is, I suspect, primarily used as a smoking area. The pub was very quiet when we visited with only two or three punters propping up the bar, but then it was a Saturday afternoon so may well be busier at other times. Various notices advertised forthcoming events such as music, comedy and quiz nights. A menu chalked up on a board offered a selection of "pub grub" dishes as well as a few specials, although we didn't eat on this occasion so cannot comment on the quality.

Beers on tap were all from the Wadworth's stable with their 6X, Henry's IPA and Swordfish. Ciders were Blackthorn, Thatcher's Gold and Weston's Traditional Scrumpy. Overall this seems a decent enough local, and I would happily return if in the area, although it's probably not worth a special trip if you're not.

I was visiting this area to go to their theatre. We wanted some food before hand so phoned ahead and booked a table.

The landlord was very welcoming and made us feel at ease showing us to our table. He pointed out there was a special offer on for that day of 2 steaks with all trimmings and a bottle of wine for 25.00!!! This was amazing value the food was fantastic.

Would highly recommend this pub to everyone for a great friendly atmosphere and excellant food. Thank you!!!

Gary is a great landlord with a pub to match! The food is delicious - proper pub food and generous portions. Good beer, music and comedy with a cosy, welcoming atmosphere.

A great traditional and unspoilt local with an excellent and very amiable landlord. With the added plus of good food well presented. Very friendly cliental and backroom staff. Good selection of ales, seasonal brews and an acceptable wine list. The central heating system is unique and it works. Just what is needed for the winter to keep your feet warm when sitting around the bar.
