This was my best experience, beer-wise, in Edinburgh. Lots of fresh casks, which were all rather high quality. Quite difficult to find, unless you’re coming from Princess Street. Very friendly service, despite a rather busy night. We went here more than once.

gary07734  (25) , England | February 23, 2009
Decent quiet old pub with some cozy corners to hide in and while away the hours. We visited for 2 quick pints during a beer festival, they had about 10 pumps on with various scottish beers. Not too exepensive, but rather hot... perhaps the heating was on so high because most of the clientelle were of a pensionable age?

Rune  (459) Tromsř, Norway | December 1, 2008
Very pleasant and comfortable central pub with a relaxing atmosphere. Eight hand pumps in function. All our ales were found to be in prime condition. Ultra fast changing range of guest ales. Orkney’s Dark Island seems to be usually available. Classic décor. Many guests come here to drink real ale. Restaurant upstarts on a balcony overlooking the pub. Guest beers are displayed on a blackboard at the rear of the bar (visited serveral times in late Oct. and early Nov. 08).

A beutiful pub, very busy when we visited in a late lunch hour of some festival. 9 beers on cask, though all well known to me.

Nice Victorian pub centraly located near the trainstation. Big selection of cask ales in good condition. Food served in the evening, but I didn´t try it. A sure re-visit next time I´m in Edinburgh.

pivnizub  (495) Bochum, Porúří, Germany | September 6, 2007
Large "classic" Victorian pub with a quite good, but not sensational selection of well-kept ales. Friendly service, quiet atmosphere. A good stop, when You finish the dangerous tour down from the Carlton Hill.....

Rastacouere  (664) Montreal, Quebec | September 2, 2007
An absolutely beautiful, rather large and very busy pub that does not lack atmosphere. The 5 waiters behind the small counter were all very busy. Only scottich ales were being served, albeit not the most exciting, on the 10 hand-pumps. Its central location, authentic (if a bit tourist-gatherer) feel and vast selection can only make it a must stop really.

Visited with the RBESG 2007 crowd. Decent and good-looking pub with a fairly nice and frequently changing selection of cask ales.

Funky old pub with cool revolving door. Cask selection was very good and tasty. Bartender had obvious dislike for americans, so we never went back.
