one of my favourite pubs in edinburgh
fantastic converted church interior, watch the spiral staircase after you’ve hada few!
great range of cask beers with a couple of keg fonts thrown in for good measure
most recent visit saw them launching scotland’s newst visit.
although quiet,staffwent out of their way to help, texting staff at another pub to find out what was on there
food available, not sampled

Probably our favourite pub in Edinburgh. No music, no TV, just the sound of lively conversation, as it should be. Oh, and they have a great selection of real ales. Highly recommended.

Small traditional pub just a short walk from the Hanging Bat. Was so full on a Friday afternoon I could barely find a place to put down my glass. 9 cask ales, interesting selection and fairly priced. The bar staff is friendly and talkative.

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.

Cosy next to the warm fire. Nice but limited selection, but too bad the cask of my ordered beer was empty. Friendly personel, certainly on this rainy day. Located a bit too far from the city center, but that could just an illusion due to the rain.

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.

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.
