Best excuse for a price rise I've heard yet. 50p premium for serving cask ale through a hand pump rather than air font.
Cromarty - Happy Chappy 4.10 On hand pump. Fresh and juicy. Orkney (Sinclair) - Corncrake Ale 4.10 Not Tried On air font.

Quiet. Hope it gets busier.
Cromarty - Atlantic Drift 3.50 For its strength this is a good take on an APA. Sadly drinkable.

Cromarty - Kowabunga 4.60 Could have given more attention to the measure.

The Gaelic choir in the lounge was diverting customers to the bar.
Cromarty - Kowabunga 4.60 Muted rather than trpoical fruited. Think was not a brewing issue.
