Small but comfortable bar with an extensive and well documented array of whisky and good selection of bottle and draught beers. Definitely a drinking destination as there is nothing else besides the company of your friends and the staff to occupy you here, as it should be! Staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations on whisky and beer. Pricing seemed very fair in the heart of the tourist area.

Quaint authentic bar hidden away in Edinburgh’s old town. This justifies the search with its interesting selection of cask ales generally in tip top condition poured through traditional gravity fonts.

One of two places we returned to. Great, small common room with a rather large bar. A s**t-load of whiskys. 6 casks that change fairly regularly. Very friendly service. I always respect when a barman recommends a competitor, because we wer looking for an excact beer. Good brewdogs in bottle. Nice, cozy place.

Nice selection both on tap and in bottle, despite their main focus being whisky and not beer. Nice atmosphere but terribly small!

Lovely old pub in the middle of Edinburgh’s home town. The speciality is cask ale and some Scottish and international bottles. They seem to have summer and winter beer festivals and seem to get beers that other bars don’t. Would highly recommend it, though steak pie was a bit small.

Traditional bar close to the tourist masses, it was packed both times we visited. Seemed to be a reasonable choice but it was hard to get to the bar. The beers were in decent nick, the ambiance is friendly. Really is worth a visit.

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 haven’t been as impressed. I don’t think the beers are being as well looked after as they used to be.

Lovely bar tucked away in the historic Old Town district. Amazing selection of single malt whisky but I was drinking the ales on my visit. Good selection of mainly Scottish ales available.
