(Visited Saturday 20/02/2016 on a late afternoon) a little bit of a trek if you are based centrally but well worth visiting here, and combining with the Hanging Bat. Very impressive venue aesthetically both from the outside and internally, was a little bit busy but speedy service getting our choice of beers. Service was good, selection very interesting, a good Scottish selection plus a keg of Kernel, stayed for a few beers and moved back centrally but well worth the visit. Recommended
Oh i cant believe ive not rated this. This is now my (work)Local. there a few lunchtimes every week. 9 taps 5 changing and 4 fixed (Stewart Holy grail, Tim Taylor Landlord, Cairngorm Tradewinds,deuchers IPA). Beer always top notch. Very friendly... This is my TOP equal choice of Edinburgh bar (along with the Bow Bar) the 5 Guest Taps Change frequently, through a wide and varied selection
Since my original rate way back in 2008...this place has gone from strength to strength, they have removed Landlord, and Deuchers and put in a permanent highland tap, and Stewarts Pentland, they have replaced Guinness with Black Isle Porter and have an occasional range of interesting Keg beers.

Excellent beer pub, focusing mostly on cask (there were 8 cask and 2 keg offerings on my arrival). Stewartís beers feature heavily but there are offerings from all over Scotland and their southern neighbour. Prices are generally reasonable with the odd outlier (bottles can be dearer than places in London). It is understandably quite popular, which results in it being hard to find a place to sit.
Medium sized pub, bit out of the way. Was quite busy both times Iíve visited. Very good selection of beers, some quality brews like Tiny Rebel and Summer Wine. Also decent number of local beers. Prices are good. Well worth visiting, wouldnít mind spending an evening there.
A really good pub, fit for the modern age, welcoming, traditional, elegant, and absent of music, thank God. Craft fast food, several better kegs, a lot of interesting, mainly new Scottish cask ales and a few bottles. Arguably the best of its kind in town.
Nice place off the beaten track. Nice traditional feel to the place and a good range of cask Scottish Micros.
Stopped for lunch and the chips were amazing.
If youíre in Edinburgh pop along to Cloisters. Itís worth the walk
Good selection of beer, often a focus on Scottish cask. Very recently added two more keg lines so expect to see the selection improve. Has had a frequently changing kitchen, donít think Iíve ever eaten here though. Good staff, good prices, nice pub.
Visited on Saturday lunch time so it was very quiet. Kind of traditional pub. Some great local ales on tap one of them was brewed for the pub only. Didnít check the bottle selection and food. Friendly and informative staff. Card paymet charged with +40p extra which is strange. Worth a visit.
