I had a very enjoyable visit here this afternoon with a group of friends. Regrettably, my beer notes have not survived.

Friendly welcoming atmosphere. Staff to be commended for offering tasters.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Harviestoun - Bitter & Twisted3.80GoodLight, refreshing session ale. Could do with a bolder flavour profile.
Greene King - Twisted Wheel4.00AcceptableGK's take on a ginger infused beer. Would be better with root ginger rather than powder. Not really to my taste.
Barney's - Volcano IPA5.00AcceptableThis 'bandwagon' IPA could have been 2* really. No body or depth of flavour.
Caledonian - Deuchars IPA3.80Not Tried

Very friendly locals bar near the river. Dogs welcome, children not.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Stewart - 74.50GoodAmber ale brewed to celebrate the brewery's 7th birthday. Slightly sweet aromas but crisp and slightly spicy in the mouth. Dry spicy finish.
Williams Brothers - September Song4.20GoodBold dark lager. Pours almost jet black with good tight head. Initially roasty the flavour mellows to light autumn fruits.
Stewart - Pentland IPA4.10Not Tried

Busy, dog friendly place with horse racing on the TV.
BeerABVScoreNotes
Timothy Taylor - Landlord4.30GoodNicely balanced biscuity malt and hops in good condition. Outselling Deuchars at least 3 to 1.

Enjoyed the crack in the bar and came back later to relax on the terrace. By far the best pub on our short break in the Borders and not in the GBG! Gents: admire the fittings in the toilets. Wish I had a local like this.

Dark Star - Hophead (some, if not all, also brewed by Fuller's)3.80GoodWhat a find! A little warm and tired but, with the sparkler off, the hops still shone through.
