Lovely place with cosy couches. They have a great selection of beer and the staff is very knowledgeable about the beers they’re serving. And they’re not skimping when they pour either. Great place.

Pub located off Lothian Road in central Edinburgh with a traditional looking interior. Good range of cask ales available also some beers on tap, with good service. Can take abit of effort getting through to the bar when busy.

This pub was literally the Cloisters of the church next door I believe. It’s a welcoming pub in Tollcross with an open fire, accomodating staff and a reliably quick turnover of well kept cask ales. The food is excellent and usually incorporates one of the beers on tap. Definitly more cask orientated but youll see some decent kegs and bottle beers in there from time to time. Hanging Bat just up the road is a better ’beer bar’ but as far as proper pubs go, Cloisters has everything I’m looking for. An essential part of Edinburgh’s beer tapestry.

Probably our favourite pub in Edinburgh. No music, no TV, just the sound of lively conversation, as it should be. Oh, and they have a great selection of real ales. Highly recommended.

Oh i cant belive ive not rated this. This is now my (work)Local. there a few lunchtimes every week. 9 taps 5 changing and 4 fixed (Stewart Holy grail, Tim Taylor Landlord, Cairngorm Tradewinds,deuchers IPA). Beer always top notch. Very friendly... This is my TOP equal choice of Edinburgh bar (along with the Bow Bar) the 5 Guest Taps Change frequently, through a wide and varied selection
Since my original rate way back in 2008...this place has gone from strength to strength, they have removed Landlord, and Deuchers and put in a permenent highland tap, and Stewarts Pendland, theyu have replaced Guinnes with Black Isle Porter and have an occasional range of interesting Keg beers.

Small traditional pub just a short walk from the Hanging Bat. Was so full on a Friday afternoon I could barely find a place to put down my glass. 9 cask ales, interesting selection and fairly priced. The bar staff is friendly and talkative.

A rather nice pub with a focus on Scottish ale located on Brougham St. They had Alechemy, Ayr, Stewart, Black Isle and the like on during my visit. Everything that I tried was in good condition. Staff were friendly and helpful. I can’t say there was anything unique on draft when I was there, but I certainly enjoyed my time.

Cosy next to the warm fire.
Nice but limited selection, but too bad the cask of my ordered beer was empty.
Friendly personel, certainly on this rainy day. Located a bit too far from the city center, but that could just an illusion due to the rain.
