Fairly busy with lunchtime drinkers. The interior is very pleasing on the eye and it's home to the Kentwood Brewery. We popped in here before the Preston Athletic Scottish Cup game against Montrose.

The pub is found in Prestonpans, East Lothian, EH32 9BE.

Superb pub dating from 1908, closed in 2001 and re-opened in 2003 after restoration. Run along Gothenburg lines, a percentage of the profits go to the local community. The main bar is magnificent with a central servery and wooden alcoves around the outer wall. One alcove contains some memorabilia associated with the former Fowlers brewery. There is a separate dining room and a further room upstairs. There is also a micro-brewery at the rear of the pub.

We have visited this pub 3 times, seen 6 different beers and tried 5 of them.
