Oh i cant belive 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 permenent highland tap, and Stewarts Pendland, theyu have replaced Guinnes with Black Isle Porter and have an occasional range of interesting Keg beers.

My favourite pub in Edinburgh as anyone who knows me will testify. 4 regular ales: Stewarts Pentland IPA and a dry hopped Stewarts 80/- specially made for Cloisters (Holy Grale), also Highland Scapa Special and Cairngprm Trade Winds. 5 constantly rotating guest ales, many of which are from Scottish breweries. A dedicated craft keg and Black Isle Porter and Blonde also regulars. Beer is exceptionally well kept, friendly atmosphere. No music. What are you waiting for?

Great small pub next to an episcopal church in Tollcross, and which, from my understanding, used to be part of the church.
Nice typical uk pub, with I believe 10 cask beers, several of which are rotating, a couple of the usual uk suspects on tap (guiness, tennets, kursovice) and a few nice bottles.
The staff are wonderful. Very friendly and knowledgeable. I was there early and they were discussing a couple casks they had just gotten in while I was sitting there and one of the bar tenders went down to the cellar and poured a couple glasses and brought them back up so that we could all try.
Food looked good and seemed to be typical pub fare, but I didnt try anything.
I would highly recommend going if you like cask ales.

My local boozer ... and what a good one to have as a local. It’s small and, since the beer is great, often crowded in the evenings. However during the day this can be a quiet haven in which to enjoy a pint and a paper. An ever rotating range of ales from the UK (and bottles from further afield) are announced by Twitter. Certainly one of Edinburgh’s best real ale establishments. Not tried the food yet, but I’ve heard good things.

Really nice pub with great selection of well kept beers. Even better, no music or TV to distract from the patter.

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.

My local! Great selection of rotating cask ales, one guest keg, often featuring Tempest/Black Isle and the like. Nice bottles too, they’ve just started stocking Old Chimney Good King Henry and IPA along with Orkney Porter & others. Always a brilliant atmosphere, super-friendly staff and great pub food thanks to the new chef. Brilliant all-round pub.

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.
