Lounge Bar: As the village 'local', you will always find a warm welcome and a friendly atmosphere - village folk and visitors alike frequent the comfortable bar. In the cooler Winter months you can sit by one of our coal or log fires in the bar, or if you prefer you can sit away from the bar in leather Chesterfields. In the Spring and Summer months you might wish to sit outside and take in the spectacular views and breathe the unpolluted sea air.

There is regular and varied entertainment, including traditional ceilidh bands - Plaid Oot from Glasgow, Tillers Folly from Vancouver, Canada and Tantallon from Tasmania, Australia have all recently appeared, Rock and Blues bands - Dreadful Grate, a very popular local band, Johnny Fats Blues Band from Wick amongst many others. A regular and popular Charity Quiz night is held monthly in support of MacMillan Cancer Relief. From time to time a themed disco is held - perhaps a 'Seventies' night, occasionally there is a Karaoke night. In the gallery area off the bar you can enjoy pool or darts. There are wide-screen televisions for major sporting events - World Cup Football, Olympic Games etc. The bar offers a wide range of draught beer - including Stella Artois, Tennent's Lager, Ember 80/- Ale, Velvet 70/- Ale, Boddington's Bitter, Dry Blackthorn Cider, Guinness regular and extra cold, plus a wide selection of bottled beers, wines and spirits. Sandwiches and bar meals are regularly available.
