Rivals the Bow for best beer bar in Edinburgh. Actually beat the Bow on the quality of the selection, overall. High turnovers on the beers. Excellent friendly service in a small pub with a great vibe. Solid single malt list as well.

A top spot. They’ve got a good beer list, ever rotating taps. Some nice whiskies, too. Often packed, though, try to visit in off-peak times.

Another lovely pub situated in a historic building. Great selection and was happy to try some Black Isle beers here. Didn’t get a chance to eat, but was content in filling up on a few beers. During the day was nice and quiet, must get mental during the evenings. Need to return for another visit.

A very impressive building and interior succeed in making you feel at home while you gaze at all the attractive nooks and crannies. People were quite quiet here even though all tables were taken, and most of them by people in their twenties, creating a meditative atmosphere. Food is typical Scottish pub food, hefty portions of heavy foods. The toad in the hole I had (sausages in some kind of dough) was decent and absurdly filling. Not expensive either. Note that they serve meals from 12 to 6pm only. Beer selection was fun and ample too and the bartenders really friendly and knowledgeable. I happened to be staying the Tollcross neighborhood of Edinburgh while visiting, so this pub was an easy walk for me. Otherwise, follow Gazza’s advice and you’ll get there in no time. A fine Scottish pub experience!

This turned out to be our favourite pub in Edinburgh. The church fittings are still pretty obvious, the feeling is of a grander comfort than some of the smaller pubs. The range of beers is terrific from all over the UK. We ate here too, the food being very decent. A must visit for me.

Outstanding drinking place with an unpretentious atmosphere and lots of pubcos. Visited by different kinds of people. On Sundays guests come from service at the nearby church to have a couple of good pints here. Broad selection of ales, including Hole Grale from Stewart Brewing. Open at 12.30 on Sundays.

A rather nice pub with a focus on Scottish ale located on Brougham St. They had Alechemy, Ayr, Stewart, Black Isle and the like on during my visit. Everything that I tried was in good condition. Staff were friendly and helpful. I can’t say there was anything unique on draft when I was there, but I certainly enjoyed my time.

Visited this pub on the Great Graig Pubcrawl Tour 23/4-2012.
This pub is a typical old corner city pub. They have a good variation on both scottish and english beers. Very friendly staff. The place can at times be very crowded, but it defently a place to visit if you go to Edinburgh. Most days they do pub food, but haven´t tried it.
They do have a few bottle beers as well.
