Cozy enough, quite small bar, but still room on an early Saturday evening. The beer was not in top form, though, so no need to go out of the way for this.

Honestly, the staff was disinterested and the beers were in awful condition. I really didnít like this place much at all, not in the Edinburgh top twenty, despite the guest beers (no point in bringing them in then serving them full of sour and butter).
Cosy and welcoming pub on a rainy and cold windy afternoon in Edinburgh. Open fireplace. Decent food, I had a well made gammon steak. Lshaped bar in splendid pub surroundings. Eight handpumps including one with cider. Can be a very relaxing drinking place early in the afternoon, but gets quite busy in the evenings. Visited several times in October and November 2008.
I liked this place. Good food and a nice selection of scottish and english cask ales in good condition.

Stunning interior. There are three very large pub mirrors, and beautiful decorative tiling on the lower half of the walls.
7 casks - nothing unusual, but all solid stuff.
The beer range, the character, the atmosphere, the uniqueness of the place, and the veggie haggis lift this above the ordinary. Itís a must visit place. Not for scooping, just for enjoying.
