Centrally located whitewashed hotel. New operators took on lease late in 2016 and the main lounges and restaurant were completely refurbished then. The lounge now operates under the name "Pepper & Fogg's". Large function room to rear has its own bar and is well used at weekends. Local Rotary and Round Table clubs use one of the separate meeting rooms regularly.
Two handpumps but often only one available and, like other Deeside pubs winter months present a challenge. The former public bar to the east of the building, which was transformed in to a separate American diner by the previous owner operators, remains closed.
