Staff is not super attentive, but its a nice little pub with a great selection. Really cheap pies, too, if you’re hungry.

Popular traditional bar with a very minimalistic interior. 8 cask ales, good selection and fairly priced, and a few fancy imported (expensive) kegs. Staff is a bit reserved, in accordance with the vibe of the place. Get there early if you want to sit.

Scopey  (687) Croydon, England | May 8, 2013
Traditional single-room freehouse pub located in old-town Edinburgh. Lots of interesting Scottish micros on cask and a few token Northern English. The bottle selection is compact, but well-chosen. If you like whisky this is also a great place to visit. Really enjoyed it until it started to get very busy, but then again is was a Saturday. Prompt and friendly service. An Edinburgh must-visit.

MrW  (63) Mechelen, Belgium | February 11, 2013
Nice bar located in the centre of Edinburgh. A lot of locals, which was a good thing. Warming stove. Poor selection, some internationals. But they flyer with the message "Winter Beer Festival", but like non of the beers were available. Expensive but friendly, fluent, helpful barkeeper.

Theydon_Bois  (1046) Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, England | December 22, 2012
Visited at lunchtime on Saturday 8th Decemeber ’12. Medium sized single room venue, bar to the left as you enter. 8 cask, largely scottish micros including Tryst, Stweart and Hghland Brewing Co on my visit, nearly always one or two English offerings as well. Place was pretty busy so we stood by the bar. Service was prompt and we never had to wait. Have visited the Bow many times, classic trad bar and a must on a visit to the Burgh!

Excellent pub in central Edinburgh. Quite a small old fashioned room, quiet but helpful enough service, no music, just lots of mostly Scottish beer on tap, a large and moderately interesting botle selection (for a visitor the taps were way more appealing) and a colossal whisky selection.

Used to be my local and the best bar in Edinburgh. However on my last few visits, I haven’t been as impressed. I don’t think the beers are being as well looked after as they used to be.
