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

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

Benjii  (63) Edinburgh, Scotland | November 4, 2011
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.
