Traditional pub in the city centre with an island bar and a rather good selection of Scottish micros on draught. Nice and quiet atmosphere on the Friday and Sunday afternoons we visited. The fish and chips one of the waitors was carrying to a table smelled absolutely rancid though ...

Traditional island bar with 2 cask beers, had troubles with the cellar at my visit, so no real ales that day, pity, cause the food was decent, and the interior as well.

Proper Scottish pub with an island bar and air pressure dispense. Always a good selection of Scottish micros. Very good food and friendly efficient staff. I always try to visit here when in town.

The staff in the island bar look and sound trapped, though the decoration has livened up in recent years thanks to the ceiling being painted, so it and they are not so Rose Street depressed as they were. This bar would benefit from the presence of an old-fashioned landlord, even if they were just an act borrowed from the Fringe out of season.

Traditional type of pub in the city centre again fitted out ornately, with lovely plasterwork, mahogony and a big island bar. Beers from Scottish micro brewers to the fore, like its sister pub, The Guildford. Eating appears to be upstairs. Decent pub.

Visited this pub on the Great Graig Pubcrawl Tour 23/4-2012.
A traditionel city center pub, with a large bar in the middle of the pub, and tables around at the walls. I think this place more is a drinking pub, but itīs possible have traditionel pub food here. There are 5 cask pumps with a good range of UK beers. Friendly staff, nice deko and on the day I visited there was a lot of seniors, so I felt a bit young :-)

Lively city-centre pub with a fair selection of ales and a good buzz about it. Arguably the pick of the Rose Street bars. Rapid turnover ensures the ales are fresh.
