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 canít 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. Didnít 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.

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 havenīt tried it. They do have a few bottle beers as well.

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.
