Was surprised. Felt a bit like a small, chainy grungy dive bar, if such things exist. Not a great atmosphere. A good selection of brewdog beers, but guest taps were lacking, and prices were a bit high. Many bars worth visiting in Edinburgh before this one. Disappointed.

Visited there 29.8.2014 friday afternoon. It wasn’t very crowded and there was some place to sit. Taps were guaranteed brewdog, some nice ticks like ab14. Guest taps was little disappointment, like weihenstephan helles, WHAT. But really nice bar anyway and worth visit.

Nice pub. Ok selection of taps and bottles (Sco, UK, DK, US). Had hoped for a bigger selection of BrewDog beers. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Ok prices, some of the BrewDog beers very overprices.

2014-07-10. Feels very similar yet different from Glasgow and Aberdeen bars. I like the booths here more than the more open concepts of the others, but it keeps much of the same decor and feel to it. Bar staff are friendly and did a good job of explaining the different ltd BrewDog bottles to me but why not have it on a board? Surprisingly few BrewDog beers on tap today. I guess they were doing a Stone promotion? Atmosphere wise I think I like it the best of the three BrewDog pubs we visited but the beer selection was a bit limited today.

Visited this bar twice during a recent stay in Edinburgh, both times on weekday afternoons when it wasn’t very crowded. I’m not terribly familiar with BrewDog beers, but the ones I had were quite enjoyable, and much more assertive than most traditional Scottish beers. (I tried an RIS and a single-hop IPA.) The place has a slightly corporate feel to it and the staff were friendly enough but didn’t seem to know much about beer. They could guide customers to beers of a particular sort and say something minimal about them, but when I asked questions, they had no idea how to answer -- for example, I asked where the single hop (Comet) comes from. Also, on my second visit, they were disappointingly out of almost all of their own beers. The staff said they were getting a shipment the following day! Overall a moderate quality experience.

I visited this place twice during a weekend city break to Edinburgh. First visit was during the middle of the afternoon and the second wisit was in the evening on the following day. There’s a limited number of diner-style enclosures as well as an outdoor ’biergarten’ with some tables, which is really only for the smokers as it lacks any kind of charm. If you don’t manage to get one of the 10 tables or so you’ll have to sit at the bar or stand. When we arrived in the afternoon we managed to get a table immediately and in the evening we had to wait around 15 minutes or so. We tried several of their house beers from tap and also had two pizzas for dinner once. I found the selection to be "standard brewdog++", which is good enough but nothing amazing. The prices were slightly high it being Edinburgh and all. The food was decent even if it took a while to have it delivered and the selection could probably have been bigger. I found the service to be good with attentive staff that was easy to reach and was also accomodating of special requests foodwise. I would probably go again when in Edinburgh if I were in the area.

Okay selection of food, not a place to eat your dinner though. But the chips was amazing! Good service, nice bartenders, talkative, friendly.

I really like BrewDog bars. This one is no exception. Nicely located in Old Town. Always great own beers and guest beers. Have some events like beer-food pairings etc. Will be back.

The feeling is the same when you go into a brewdog bar,so you know what to expect.Always a safe choice and a good place to drink good beer.Good line up of guest beers and some good bottle list.I recommend it to people that want to taste a different side of scottish ales.

Me and Loz visited here on Saturday 15th March 2014. This was my first time here but hey-ho its a Brewdog bar so you pretty much know what yer’ getting. Polished concrete and a spartan uncluttered feel with a few sort of railway style raised booths. The bar is situated in a dark lower street the greyness of the local buildings perfectly suited to this place. I had an Abstrakt 14 Loz a Dead Pony Club (no surprise there then :-) ) the music featured the likes of Primal Scream & Massive Attack. The barman who served me was very pleasant. It was fine.
