imdownthepub  (499) Banbury, England | April 22, 2012
Rather a grand and spectacular Victorian style pub in a very central location, very handy for the buses. Big windows, plenty of light, plenty to look at. Good for Scottish micro brewery beers. Met Craig in here, he had an inkling we would start there. Nice buzz about the place, but as mentioned before, quite pricey.

Dr_Butty  (11) , Scotland | January 1, 2012
Close to Edinburghís bustling Princeís Street is this gem of a pub. A glance around and up reveals a fine interior but the best part is the bar which always carries a good selection of local real ales as well as a a fair few from over the border. The beer is usually well kept, although you will pay Edinburgh prices for the pleasure of drinking it. Itís worth it though. Upstairs thereís a small gallery and restaurant serving decent, if unexceptional, food.

Always quite crowded. Good central location, but hidden from tourists. Always an impressive list of good quality draft beers on their 10 pumps. Also have interesting bottles from time to time.

downender  (303) Bristol, England | July 24, 2011
Visited on 7/6/2011. Another Edinburgh pub with an attractive old ceramic and wood interior. It was busy for mid-afternoon on weekday, but the service was efficient and friendly. The beer choice was decent and the quality good.

Borresteijn  (181) Amsterdam, Netherlands | November 4, 2010
Visited during Edinburgh pubcrawl with my girlfriend, Craig, Fin, Loz, Arjan. Large bar just outside the train station, just off Princess street, historic interior, there was a beer festival when we visited so plenty of cask ales on, had a very good smoked mackarel & mushroom pie, staff was a bit uninterested. Nice place to have a couple of beers and some food, although a bit pricy.

Beershine  (746) The Sunshine State, Florida | September 24, 2010
One of the most attractive pub interiors in Edinburgh. Compelling to visit and linger. Opulent and gilded decor, roaring 20s come to life. Clientele and staff can be appropriately genteel but itís still a casual place. Around the corner from a similarly characterful place called the Cafe Royal but the Guildford is more spectacular. Excellent location nr. Princes St. Beer selection and quality can be very good. Has a restaurant upstairs, but didnít eat there.
