Classical old-style ale bar out near the Heineken brewery. A must for lovers of beer history. A place without which respect for cask ale in Scotland may not have revived. An essential stop. The days when it was twelve deep to the bar and crowds like a Festival Saturday have passed, sadly.

Popped in for a quick soup and sandwich, very good soup and excellent value. Six ales on, good range of strengths and styles. Very clean and welcoming, will return for sure.

Visited this pub on the Great Graig Pubcrawl Tour 23/4-2012. This traditionel corner pub is a Deuchers pub, but still worth a visit. The pub got itīs nickname, since the graveyard is just next to the pub, and the diggers came over for their pint of beer, On the 6 handpumps there are a range of different UK beers on. The day I visited the place, the pubdog was around, and we had a nice little chat ;-) They do small bar snacks, and they have these small nice tables. And itīs one of the few places I have seen that you can buy a pub tie!!!

An historic, corner boozer with a couple of cask ales and Tempest on with some regularity. Extra points for the quiet darts room off to the side. Close to The Caley. Worth a look.

Traditional Scottish Corner bar with a long history. A football bar affilliated to Hearts. Small selection of well cared for traditional ales. Good atmosphere. Close to the Caley Sample Rooms.
