Carters Bar  

Carters Bar is a small, traditional family-run pub. They pride themselves on the quality of their beers and the personal touch lacking in some establishments run by big companies. The bar-room is on two levels. On the ground floor you are never far from the action, whether leaning on the bar itself, standing at the handy barrel or shelves or sitting at one of the tables. Upstairs in the gallery you can sit more quietly with friends, live it up noisily with a larger group, admire the unusual mural - painted by a local artist - or gaze down into the bar through the railings (but remember people in the bar can look back up at you). The gallery is available for small private parties by arrangement Being small gives the bar a cosy, friendly feeling, enhanced by the family atmosphere. In fact most of the staff are either relations or close friends - Richard's three sons, David, John and Brian, and his wife Margaret are all past or present bartenders, and regulars feel that they are friends of the family. The bar is listed in the Good Beer Guide 2000. There are six cask ale handpull taps, usually with Caledonian Deuchars IPA and 80/- plus guests from Belhaven, as well as a choice of cider and a quality range of malt whiskies along with other spirits and liqueurs. There were two Happy Hours every day from opening until 1:30pm and from 5pm until 6:30. No accommodation here.
