I went with two Americans ages 22 and 26. The barman would not accept their state-issued drivers licenses as IDs and said it was illegal to do so. The IDs were accepted in many other pubs without comment so either the barman was a liar or the other places decided to break the law. The Cask and Barrel was full of old men drinking and did not seem like a good place anyway. I recommend that you avoid it, especially if you are a young foreigner. Based on my experience, I think they may be anti-American.

My favourite place on my last trip to Edinburgh. No food, just beer and plenty of space, with lots of tables to sit at. 8 cask ales on, all well-chosen and in good condition, friendly service. Combined with a visit to the Southern, the Great Grog bottle shop and the Dagda Bar makes for a great afternoon.

I enjoyed going in this pub, however brief my visit was. I had a half pint of a beer from Ilkley and it was in good condition. I would like to visit this pub again.

A well appointed central bar. Scotlandís best breweries are all on cask and the beer is well kept. Good ambiance but didnít try the food offering.

You can hit up the Reverie and this place nearby. Food is better at the Reverie, but this place has a much better and larger cask ale selection. Friendly regulars.

A good boozer that mainly focusses mainly on cask ale but also has a small but decent bottle selection. Always quite livveley and is a good venue for watching football. I prefer this one to the original in Broughton Street.

A great local boozer... one of the better priced places in edinburgh with a goood solid range of cask ales ... little far out so probably not a must visit destination ... but worth it in combined with the southerner
