See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

The pub is situated in a traditional three-storey sandstone building, purpose built in 1895 for the Alloa Co-operative Society. The pub's name relates to Alloa-born John Erskine who created industrial Alloa, developing the town as a coal mining centre. He was twice Secretary of State for Scotland under Queen Anne; however, his frequent changes of political allegiance earned him the nickname 'Bobbing John'. Much of the building's existing stone has been retained and a new Victorian shop front reintroduced, in keeping with the building. the pub feaures a large beer garden. Alcohol served from 11am Children & accompanying adults are allowed on the premises until 8pm (childrens rules apply). Last orders for meals for adults with children is 7pm
