Quite a wee bar with a small number of beers available - can often be busy due to the size.

Rather small two room pub in a peaceful street quite close to the bustling Princes Street. Had a very local feel to it where everybody knew each others name. Beer selection is decent, four casks on. If nearby worth stopping by for a pint.

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  (703) 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.
