The Clachan Inn, Drymen, Scotland

Click to see ‘The Clacham Inn, Drymen, Scotland’ in a variety of different sizesTonight we dine at the oldest registered pub in Scotland: the Clachan Inn, Drymen, established 1734. I’m sure others dispute that claim, but you can see how this was once somebody’s front room.

It makes for a cosy, highly recommended drinking hole. The beer is all keg, but Scotland hasn’t got much of a real ale tradition anyway and they do have Budvar, real Czech Budweiser, on tap.

I expect the food to be similar to the Clachan Inn’s rivals. That is, good quality, well presented dishes drawing on local produce. While you eat well in these parts, there isn’t a great deal of variety and bar menus don’t differ greatly from restaurants. There is certainly room for an imaginative young chef to come in and shake things up.
