Pretty small pub, homey for being right off the royal mile. You canít order food at the bar, but we sat with some locals. The food (paninis & steak and ale pie) was good, the service was "brisk". Decent prices.

Visited this pub on the Great Graig Pubcrawl Tour 23/4-2012.
As the name say this very small, traditionel city pub, is place halfway between 2 streets, down ( or up ) the stairs.
And it is very small, with 4 handpumps, and beers from all UK. There is limited space in the pub, put 20 people in there and it will be crowded. Placed very close to the train station, I would say itīs a must to visit this pub, whether you are into beers or not :-).
They do small pub snacks, but donīt think they do any food.

Atmospheric city centre pub halfway up a huge flight of steps and between old and new towns. Not really a beer paradise hence the lower mark and it took forever to get served, must disguise the English accent somehow, but friendly banter and customers and a good place to be.

Visited 7/6/2011. Tiny pub which offers four decent real ales (from Strathhaven, Houston, Broughton and Stewart on this occasion). Service and atmosphere were pleasant and the Haggis, neeps and tatties was enjoyable too. Worth a visit.

Very small cosy traditional Scottish bar close to Waverley Railway Station. 4 well cared for real ales on tap. Good service from friendly bar maids. A great place to go before you catch your train.

Adorable place, in a stellar location that makes its name truly relevant. Itís a halfway point between the old town and new town. Impossible not to stop here, really. More compelling to visit than it is to stay, if that makes sense. Not the best selection or anything. Just a cute place to drop in for a pint. Oh, and they tend not to over-sparkle.

The Camra Pub Guide awarded this place ..I was surprised about that....even if it is quite charming for its historical location, selection of beers is just on average ... but it smells bad and looks dirty. Good for drinking a couple of pints and then say bye bye

Nice place halfway the stairs. Small, so it was crowded. A lot of real ales.

Unbeatable location and building for a pub, though the interior is frankly kinda ugly. A few interesting locals drinking lager, didnít strike me as a massive real ale place. I had a couple of Cairngorm beers which were well kept, but had to make sure they werenít the same beer. They sure seemed like it. Fairly basic food, but not bad. Friendly service. I dunno, I guess I expect tiny places tucked down back alleys to be trendy bars. This place was alright, but just seemed pretty much just like an outer suburban pub.
