Great place for pairing a meal with several beers. They have 8 casks, 7 drafts and a long list of beers. Mostly Scottish beers on offer.
Staff is really helpful by offering samples and showing bottles.

Pretentious bar with overpriced beer served to a poor standard.

Decent selection of beers and a melting pot of activity around the weekends - lots of people, but a bit too cramped for me at those times. Atmosphere is nice though and so is the staff. Wouldn’t mind going there again if they have something on tap I really want.

A gastropub that boasts a wide selection of cask ales plus an impressive array of bottles. Not trioed the food in a long time but I remember it being excellent.

large suburban gastropub with good selection across 8 handpumps, some keg and bottles
often runs food pairing nights
one mile stroll from haymarket, maybe a bit out of town for a single day visit
often seems quiet but staff are good

Packed to the rafters on a busy weekend night with the cool crowd drinking good beer. Can’t hate on that. Way too cramped but enjoyable regardless, thanks to great company.

Busy place, especially on nights where Hearts are playing or the rugby is on at Murrayfield. Place has exceptional pub food and a nice selection of beer. Dining there is a pleasure even on full nights. Usually a good blend of Scottish Ales worth trying. They work with local breweries for a variety of guest taps and have a variety of more or less alright foreign beers. The service is very decent. Children are allowed until 8 pm. Bookings for dinner recommended but not always necessary.

Visited this pub on the Great Graig Pubcrawl Tour 23/4-2012.
This cosy modern pub is in an old store room. Has a long bar with a great selection of both scottosh and english beers. They have 8 handpumps and a nice selection of foreign bottle beers. The doors to the toilets looks a bit like stable doors, but don´t worry, they have real toilets :-).
They do food as well, the menus are on the traditionel blackboard, but didn´t have anything there.
Friendly staff and a very nice place to come.

Well ive been in Edinburgh Long enough to see this place Ebb and Flow. In fact it was probably one of the first pubs i was in in Edinburgh. Its gone through some rough patches over the 10year but it now climbed to the top ... Great selection of Scottish beers... Good condition... well served and nice big comfortable pub ... But one place that this place excell is the food. Its a little pricy but the food is superb. Plus it allows kids and there FEW good pubs in Edinburgh that allow kids. There is along side the Great cask range a very impressive bottle list. Well worth a visit.
