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

Very lively traditional Scottish bar with live football on TV. Interesting selection of quality real ales on tap & some good bottles as well. Far out from the centre of Edinburgh but with other interesting nearby venues well worth a visit.

This pub shows clear signs of having recently opened its doors. Everything inside, including the toilets, were tidy, nice and clean. Good looking with a relatively large U-shaped bar, mirror decorations on the walls together with a few TV screens, and, like its sister pub up north in Broughton Street, some barrels on the floor. Fine selection of eight cask ales from Scotland and England. Not many, but a few interesting bottled beers, form Thornbridge, among others. Both service and comfort were irreproachable. A splendid edition to the great pub scene in Edinburgh. (I could not find the phone number so I have submitted the one from the pub in Broughton St.) (Visited 30.11.2010).
