Surprised the reviews for this place aren't higher, I visited after a gig at the Usher Hall and was impressed with the large range of mainly local(ish) beers from the likes of Tempest, Pilot. While the ambience/atmosphere wasn't particuarly memorable it's a good stopping point in that area, especially to find local beers,
Restaurant cum Bar in central Edinburgh, had the feel of a canteen on our visit. Busy and rushed, seating is at a premium and not the most comfortable. The beers are all kegged, there was a Reuben’s Brewery tap take over on our visit, which was fine. The staff are quite rushed, so service is difficult. Not sure we enjoyed it that much.
A medium sized place that perhaps best could be described as a mix between a restaurant and a pub with service by the table. Decent range of mostly Scottish beers on tap, about 20 pumps, many of them from the Williams Brothers, but also from local microbreweries like Alechmy. Reasonably friendly service. The lunch food was quite alright. Easy to find at the busy Lothian Road with the Bat just a bit further up the street (visited 07.08.2013).
this bar seems fairly under rated in my experience of it. Modern bar/diner style layout, taps out of walls, interesting ephemera, closest decent pub to haymarket. Fantastic good value breakfasts, a range of keg and cask beers, with some regulars and other guests. My visit was during a beer festival; so may have been better than usual? Staff friendly and helpful though fairly new; so a little slow! Typical pricing strucutre, suffers a bit from being so near to the paradise that is hanging bat but well worth a visit
Relaxed atmosphere, very welcoming. 17 taps, and most are Williams Brothers. No real gems on when we visited. 3x 1/3 pints for tasting is a nice touch. Pints quite expensive (in the 4-5 pounds range) Did not try the food.
Great place next to the hotel, where I stayed. Local beers on tap. A few on cask. Didn’t look for the bottled selection, but my eyes spotted a few bottles from Nøgne Ø. Food s served - didn’t try, but it looked like standard pub fare.
