Pretty good selection of beers. A bit too bright and modern for the good old pub feeling, but nice place. Well worth visiting.

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?

Beautiful old boozer with helpful staff and a nice ambience where you can hear yourself speal. There is a large range of cask ales. Generally speaking they seem to know what they’re doing with the black art of handling cask ales.

Visited 7/6/2011. Busy bar with a decent selection of contrasting ales. Barmaid was friendly and efficient. Worth the walk from the Bow Bar.

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.

Present for launch of the new Stewart Hefe Weizen Beer. Busy real ale bar with clientele who are real ale enthusuiasts. Good selection of interesting quality real ales & staff who are interested. A good place to sample good real ales and meet fellow beer lovers.

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.

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.

On Cgarvieuk’s recommendation (thx), almost 1 hours wallk from the Walvery station (if you have small legs which my 4 year old son has :-)). He was happy until he was "ported" - no one under the age of 18 is allowed to be insided the pub (I don’t think children that age are so keen on Real Ales). Anyhow the man behind the bar was kindly to let me have a freebee on one of the real ales before making final decison.
