25th Oct 2014. Very small front bar room with a larger, but just as basic side room up a couple of steps to your right as you squeeze past the end of the bar. Cask ales in good condition, four to choose from: friendly bar lady and a mixed bag of customers, all fine and friendly also. Big Rugby pub, or so my local guide told us.

Great characterful boozer of Inspector Rebus fame. It is a 2-room job with a tiny bar area at the front and a larger lounge at the back. They offer a small selection of cask ales from Caledonian, Atlas and some Scottish micros. Barkeep was friendly and the beer was in good condition. Nice mix of locals and tourists alike. I really like the atmosphere. Worth a visit for sure.

Went there as a Rebus / Ian Rankin fan but found licensee extremely hospitable, there were 8 taps including 4 HP beer engines with local craft beers. Was allowed to pull my own pint from beer engine - had a great chat and a most enjoyable time.

In the narrow terraces just a block away from the elegant George Street, the Oxford bar is just a few doors along from the Cambridge Bar on a road that feels like a back-street let alone a place that is just a few minutes walk away from the commercial centre of the city on Princes Street. Itís a very small venue with a couple of rooms, the first being the cramped bar on your left as you walk in that includes a decent rotating selection for a place of this size - although when itís busy it does back people in. Simple but comfortable.

Itís small. crowded, can be inhospitable. A must to visit in Edinburgh, even if youíre just a Rebus fan.

imdownthepub  (624) Banbury, England | April 26, 2012
Small 2 roomed pub, classical Edinburgh type bar with 2 smallish rooms but ornately fitted out. Small range of beers but mostly Scottish microís, which makes it worth visiting. Spent a very relaxed ouple of hours in there.

Small, but friendly 2 room pub in Young Street, excellent efficient service, great atmosphere, but gets easily overcrowded. One of my favourite pubs in Scotland

As featured in the Scootish detective programme Rebus. Very small traditional Scottish bar with extremely friendly atmosphere & service. 4 real ale taps, 3 in use. not the best place for beer geeks but still a good place to visit.

I cant believe i havent rated this ... This is famous for "Inspector Rebus" drinking there... ITs only a very small selection of beers.... but its a clasic old man two room pub... bar is tiny but the back room is much bigger.

Famous place, real old man vibe. Perpendicular drinking. Itís supposed to be a writersí pub, too. For me, it was mostly the poor state of the beer that stood out. Otherwise, itís on a lot of itineraries so probably worth a stop if youíre walking out towards the Stockbridge Tap and getting thirsty.
