2014-08-18 17:23:11Nick SimmondsNews from Strathaven - of the three pubs on the data base, only the Weavers is selling ale. The Waterside has been shut for about a year undergoing major refurbishment. It is expected to reopen September/October but as the new owners' exiting pub in Hamilton doesn't sell real ale it remains to be seen whether the Waterside will have any. The Star has been affected by flash flooding and their lounge is currently shut. The public bar has no real ale and I believe the one ale they had previously stocked (Belhaven IPA) had not been selling well. Fortunately the ale in the Weavers is in top form with an increased range including Loch Ness and Windswept appearing recently. On my visit the Atom IPA was excellent and I have not tasted a finer Strathaven Claverhouse; in my opinion, in this condition, it is the best traditional 80/- in the country.
