A big boozer with almost a dozen ales to choose from. Selection was a little uninspiring but beer was in good condition. Barman was happy to offer samples which is always a nice touch.

Good location close to Haymarket train station. And a bit away from the tourist trap areas. Nice selection of beer on handpull. Traditional british pub.

Large traditional street corner bar across the road from Haymarket Station. 12 handpumps (2 duplicated ales, one not in use) Interesting selection. Quiet relaxed atmosphere. Worth a visit.

Re-rating as the condition of their beers has seemed to improved dramatically in the last 6 months and it keeps revolving. Previous rating 19/07/11 3+7+9+5+6+12=62 A re-vamped bar now boasting around double figures of cask ales. It’s a more pleasant place to hang out. No idea about food yet - food was good enough previously. Despite the fact that they have a lot of taps, the quality of the average ale is not up with Edinburgh’s long established ale pubs, such as the Bow Bar or Cloisters. But overall, a good improvement.

Relaunched July 2011 as a Nicholson’s pub – gone are the questionable décor and drinkers, atmosphere is much better. M&B beer selection, so some decent rotating guests – changes every season, so 20 for summer, 25 for autumn. Deuchars and Caley 80/- as permanent. They do serve food, but we haven’t yet tried it. A big improvement on the old Haymarket – looks nicer, better beer and a better pub.
