See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

A single-roomed village pub dating from 1760. This friendly, unpretentious local is slightly off the beaten track, although it is close to Gretna, wedding capital of the country. In the 18th and early 19th centuries marriages were conducted in the pub and wedding parties still celebrate here. Note that food is not served and the pub does not open on weekdays until 5 pm. One beer is available on handpump and is typically a golden ale that is less than 4.5% ABV. Beers are often from local or regional independent breweries and examples may include Kelburn, Lowland or Strathaven.

There is a bus stop outside the pub with local service 382 going north to Ecclefechan and Lockerbie. The southbound service terminates 5 minutes away in Gretna where there are bus connections to Annan or Carlisle.

Gretna Green railway station, with services to Carlisle, Annan and Dumfries, is a 15 minute walk from the pub.
