Visited on Saturday 24th Sept. I used to drink in here when I was a student many years ago, and it was a fine pub then, so it was great to find that it hadn’t changed. We easily found a table even though it was a Saturday Night, good selection of beers (including draught Anchor Steam Beer @ £3.40 a pint!!!...no! I didn’t try it) Service was fast and friendly, didn’t have food so can’t score it on that. 4 cask beers available on our visit.

A traditional sort of corner pub at the east end of Rose Street. There’s a central bar with dark wood panelling and an attractive ceiling with a flower motif picked out in red, bronze and white. The dining room is upstairs but there was a fair amount of eating going on in the main bar too so there was a strong smell of food. There were five casks, all from Swannay, and about four kegs. (Visited 5 February 2017).

Visited the 24th July 2016 - nice standard pub on the new town of Edinburgh, near to the train session. Central solid bar. Nice beer selection with some typical things, for a good price. Service is super friendly and will advice you. Good food. Nice place to have a stop.

Typically a small selection of beers but they are well kept and you occasionally see exciting things. Worth a visit.

I am a regular here. I visit once every two or three years without fail. Classic island bar design, on the Rose Street crawl, depressed by cheap lighting and still a bastion of cask ales - though the brilliantly clever Alchemy 80/- lit up this visit. Would still benefit no end from the presence of an old-fashioned landlord. Improving bar food but please guys, bury the fishcake under a nuclear waste pile.

Our last port of call on Friday 24th Oct 2014. I liked it and was surprised it has scored so poorly on this site. Clean, bright and impressive Victorian decor, with a fantastic central serving island. Cask ales on my visit were fine and the staff friendly enough. I suggest some of the older reviewers should return for another look and beer or three: six different cask ales available when I went.

Crowded bar with a restaurand above. Some good scottish real ales but not really a beer bar to try the newest craft beers. Food was ok, staff correct and friendly. Ok bar.

Traditional pub in the city centre with an island bar and a rather good selection of Scottish micros on draught. Nice and quiet atmosphere on the Friday and Sunday afternoons we visited. The fish and chips one of the waitors was carrying to a table smelled absolutely rancid though ...

Traditional island bar with 2 cask beers, had troubles with the cellar at my visit, so no real ales that day, pity, cause the food was decent, and the interior as well.

Proper Scottish pub with an island bar and air pressure dispense. Always a good selection of Scottish micros. Very good food and friendly efficient staff. I always try to visit here when in town.

Traditional type of pub in the city centre again fitted out ornately, with lovely plasterwork, mahogony and a big island bar. Beers from Scottish micro brewers to the fore, like its sister pub, The Guildford. Eating appears to be upstairs. Decent pub.
