The Beehive in Harthill is a good choice for some refreshments. It has been a proper country pub for over 150 years and in 2017 it underwent a significant refurbishment. The pub still retains its country feel, mixed with a modern and friendly atmosphere. There's a good menu and a nice outdoor seating with country views, where you can relax in the summer months. You can find the pub in the village at 16 Union Street with a postcode of S267YH for your sat navs.
