    We visited on a Saturday night to hear a wonderful Scottish musical group. The music was superb, the ploughman's lunch was really good and the service couldn't have been better. Many thanks to our server Claire for taking such good care of us

    Traditional feeling Scottish pub. Really happy to see a place where you can get Smithwicks and Old Speckled Hen. Scotch Flights are a great reason to visit too. A Little disappointed our bartender did not seem to know much about scotch or at least was not interested in helping make a choice nor did they check on us afterwards or see if we needed much else besides the check. They seemed to be very focused on some regulars or former employees that were in instead. The singer song writer night is a bit of a bust too. Just would prefer music that fits the vibe and atmosphere vs quite Indi strumming. We visited again two days later sitting at a table instead of the bar and had a much better experience. Still no live music as it did not start till 9 but good house music. Our server was excellent. The food is heavy and filling. The Guinness pie got lots of compliments. Pub fries were crisp with a nice gravy. The surprise was the Jacket Potato with Tikka Masala. Just enough spice in the sauce and plenty of it on a well baked potato we got two and the whole plate was cleaned. The bangers and mash special was also super tasty. I do think I'll need to visit again to try this Mac and cheese pie.

    As the sign boasts, there is a fantastic variety of scotch. The service is friendly and there is a good amount of seating. It is a bar and restaurant set on the corner at the edge of Old City Knoxville. It's worth a visit for tourists and locals alike.

    This is my husband and my favorite restaurant in all of Knoxville. We have been here more for dinner than any other restaurant in the area. Our regulars are: fish and chips (the absolute best), steak and ale pie (my go-to), loaded potato soup and garden salad with their delicious highland dressing. The toffee dessert is delectable- plan to share with others as it is very rich. We love to go with our kids on Tuesday nights where the string band that plays has played the kid songs just for us!
