Nice bar located in the centre of Edinburgh. A lot of locals, which was a good thing. Warming stove.
Poor selection, some internationals. But they flyer with the message "Winter Beer Festival", but like non of the beers were available.
Expensive but friendly, fluent, helpful barkeeper.

Visited at lunchtime on Saturday 8th Decemeber í12.
Medium sized single room venue, bar to the left as you enter. 8 cask, largely scottish micros including Tryst, Stweart and Hghland Brewing Co on my visit, nearly always one or two English offerings as well.
Place was pretty busy so we stood by the bar.
Service was prompt and we never had to wait.
Have visited the Bow many times, classic trad bar and a must on a visit to the Burgh!

Excellent pub in central Edinburgh. Quite a small old fashioned room, quiet but helpful enough service, no music, just lots of mostly Scottish beer on tap, a large and moderately interesting botle selection (for a visitor the taps were way more appealing) and a colossal whisky selection.

One of the best bars in Edinburgh, usually a good selection of Scottish micros on served via traditional Scottish air pressure.

Used to be my local and the best bar in Edinburgh. However on my last few visits, I havenít been as impressed. I donít think the beers are being as well looked after as they used to be.

I absolutely love this place! The staff are welcoming, helpful and very knowledgable. Their passion for imbibing and food is very evident. The Tall Font system is still in use and they have a good diverse selection of real ale, mostly focused on the York area. The whiskey selection is well priced, with way too many great options. Basically, you can spend an entire day here and be a very happy albeit drunk person. The staff made my visit to Edinburgh, giving me great places to eat all over the city. I would suggest thie Bow Bar to all.

Good traditional bar, the more so for its position just off the Royal Mile on the way to Grassmarket, directly opposite one of the best whisky shops in the world. An essential port of call if doing Embra.

A battered but charming room. A decent selection of mostly local beer on tap. Some Begian beers sold on bottles, but the bottle selection wasnít that impressive. I sat there for a few hours a saturday afternoon on my own and had a great time with a few pints and good service. If food is served there I didnít notice.
