Had just popped in for a coffee to be greeted by a lovely fire and a very helpful and friendly owner! This place is absolutely amazing. Was actually looking for a place that my father grew up and worked the lead mines at the age of 15 to support his mother and 6 brothers and sisters in Leadhills and surprisingly the owner new exactly the place I was speaking about. The scenery on the way there and back is absolutely breath taking, this is a must visit place.

Visited recently for a family Birthday. Staff were very friendly and provided really good service. Food was fine some of our group were really pleased with their food and others a bit disappointed. Atmosphere was lovely and we were pleased with the lovely music provided by the folk musicians that weekend.

Called in to the pub for some food and found a good friendly atmosphere with subdued lighting and people chatting and having a good time, I had two pints of the very good 80/- and ordered fish and chips, the food came quite quickly and was cooked to perfection, the fish was very fresh the batter crispy and the chips spot on, I will most defiantly be back again.
PS. This was a takeaway which was no problem.

Popped in today after visiting all the touristy places (which are excellent and are a must) as is visiting the highest pub in Scotland. Small but cosy main bar (real coal fire) which leads into a lounge/function area which has plenty of seating, pool table, toilets etc. Order a few drinks and food. Food was excellent we had fresh haddock and scampi (wish I had taken photo's) and we cant complain about either. Very tasty and we could see it was cooked fresh.
Staff were friendly and attentive, we were not rushed with our food or drink, it was a pleasure and we will be back soon.

We chatted with the Manager who was very pleasant, told us some good stories and more history on Wanlockhead. Talked about the brewery, local gins etc.

Cant quite understand the negative feedback seen on here. My advice go and try it for yourself.

Whilst visiting Wanlockhead we decided to call in to the highest pub in Scotland. We thought that with having such a reputation it would have an interior to match. Sadly, the interior loomed a bit dated and worn. Apparently it used to be a social club, and that is the impression as you walk in. It has so much potential but needs some time and effort invested.
