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, didn’t 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 weren’t 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.

Small bar located at some dodgy stairs in the centre of Edinburgh. Cosy interior, small seats. Couple of real ales available. Fun place to visit.

Got interested in this pub because it was appointed best pub in Edinburgh 2009 by the local CAMRA branch. Phoned ahead to make sure I could bring my daughter, 2 months old, and the guy told me "it shouldn’t be any problem". As we turned up the following day it turned out we were not welcome. Disappointing to say the least. Had mineral water with my lunch at Garfunkel’s.

great little bar. 4 casks, comfortable seating. Imagine it would be hard to find if we didnt have our tourguide. Neat bar

Small place on a nice location. Friendly service but quite poor selection, 2 or 3 Caledonian beers on tap. Not too many people inside, I sat just to drink my pint and went further.

Very small pub on one of Edinburgh’s steep stairways. Very cozy, but it is very small. 4 casks, including the new Youngs and Brewdog beers. Very friendly service. And they know quite a lot about their beers.

Pub is reportedly unchanged since my last visit. Little gem and one of Edinburgh’s delightful little secrets - yet in close proximity to Waverley station.
The four cask ales change regularly and staff are very friendly and authoritative on beer. Well worth a visit.
