Visited Xmas 2014. The place is first and foremost a great little neighborhood pub, which also happens to have a few interesting and not so interesting cask ales on hand pump, they had five or six when I visited. I tried four of them, one was pretty decent, the rest were ok. The main reason to go here is however the service and the laid back atmosphere, pretty much only locals. Food served for lunch.

A wet and windy Sunday afternoon (26th Oct 2014) saw us walk up to here for a couple of cask pints with the locals. Lovely little place, actual bar to your right as you enter, seating on the left and further back beyond the bar. Friendly staff and customers, cask ales in good order and red metal posts supporting the roof. Well worth finding, a very pleasant little bar.

Small, cosy pub just a short walk from the city centre, with local patrons and a rather quirky bartender. Lots of golf talk. The selection of ales is rather eclectic, so oneís bound to find a few ticks here. Place was permeated by the smell of chilli con carne and curry during lunchtime.

Great little boozer tucked away in the New Town. A cask selection that incoporated both the mundane and interesting. Beer was in good conditon.

Very small cosy traditional homely bar in Edinburgh New Town. Good selection of cask ales. Service slow but still worth a visit.

Super cosy, small, intimately pub in the new town of Edinburgh. Has got a definitely local feel to it with people at the bar watching Sundayís football matches. I ordered two half pint from the exciting range of cask ales, and found a place to sit down in a tiny, narrow library at the rear end of the bar. Seven operating hand pumps. Attentive service. Just top-notch and a new favourite for me. About 15 minutes walk from Princess Street (visited on a Sunday pub crawl, 28.11.2010).

This was a regular at one point as a friend loved very close... I still try to make it part of my Regular crawls ... beers always in good condition ... but the range can be a bit soso (if you drink regularly in scotland) Can get mobbed when Rugby is on, but the little back room is a great place to sit with a few friends when its quieter.

Great atmosphere in this localís place in the New Town. They had a good beer list too. My biggest beef was the prices, easily the highest in Edinburgh and competing with some yuppie joints in London for highest beer prices in the entire UK I swear.

This place has great character, and itís tucked away on a mostly residential zone so it adds to the specialness. The selection was fun, although some not in the best condition.
