2014-07-08. Great traditional pub atmosphere. 8 casks and some draft taps today and a pretty solid bottle list of imports as well. server is friendly. fairly quiet on a Tuesday afternoon other than a table of chatty tourists. bartender was friendly and gave accurate descriptions. Great spot, had lunch at Oink across the street.

Terrific little pub in wonderful Edinburgh. A fair collection of craft and cask, and some eyewatering whiskeys. I had a lovely time here, but stayed perhaps a bit too long, he he (there are a good few other places nearby you donít want to miss as well).

Typical English pub in the Grass market area.Really good selection of whiskeys and a descent line up of mostly local ales on tap.The bottle list was ok too.I liked the ambiance a lot as it gives you the feeling of an old pub combined with good beer.Its near to restaurants and other places to eat and drink as well as shopping.

Me and Loz visited here on Saturday 15th March 2014. Weíve been here a few times before with Craig & Stella but never got around to rating the place. This time we were on our own and visiting fairly early in the day (approx noon) the bar is on a lovely bendy cobbled street and comes across as one of the more historic venues in Edinburgh, certainly that Iíve been to. Its a smallish one room place with the bar on the right hand side and centrally located. There is a lot of wood and old maps on display, the bar has a good selection of beers on tap, in fact it is the dispense method that is very interesting with a brass type lever which is pulled to one side to dispense the beer, quite a rare and unusual type of dispense I gather. Beer choice was good, I had a superb Alechemy Oynx Loz had a Fyne Ales IPA (Hurricane?) There were a few people in here but it was generally a little quiet. It is a nice ambience, relaxed but with a sort of historic classy feel about it. Definately one of my favourite Edinburgh bars.

Superb place thatís full of atmosphere. I wish this place was my local. Itís a bit on the small side, but that only adds to the atmosphere. There is an excellent selection of beers (in keg and cask) from all over the UK.

traditional pub just off the royal mile and grassmarket. simple interior in a single room and a medium size bar dispensing 8 cask beers by the traditional scottish air pressure way..the staff is friedly but sometime a bit strict serving drinks to the people already on the way to be drunk..great selection of whiskies at reasonableprices

Pub located near the Grassmarket in the centre of Edinburgh. Traditional fairly simple interior, central bar with a wide selection of ales and whiskeys. Good atmosphere & service but can get very crowded.

A mainstay of the Edinburgh beer scene. Situated bang in the city centre with every excuse for being a tourist trap and yet It isnít. The selection is definitly more cask orientated but they do bring on some very interesting keg beers as well. The clientelle is regulars. The staff are excellent. Very friendly and accomodating with a great ability to deal with the ticks that can occur in seasoned beer drinkers. Great selection. One of the most important pubs in the city.
