The Bridgend Hotel Pub, Bridgend (tel. 01877/330-130;, is an old watering hole that has been done up in matching dusky-red wood paneling and carpeting. Tennant brews are available on tap. They have karaoke on some nights and live Scottish music, mainly on the weekend. Open Monday to Wednesday 11:30am to 2:30pm and 5:30pm to midnight; Thursday and Sunday 12:30pm to midnight; and Friday and Saturday 11:30am to 12:45am.

Another old-fashioned bar that's a local favorite is the Crown Hotel Pub, 13 Main St. (tel. 01877/330-040); it sometimes features live folk music. Otherwise, it's a mellow old place for a pint of lager. Open Sunday to Thursday from noon to 11pm and Friday and Saturday 11am to 12:30am.
