ManVsBeer  (1768) Hebden Bridge, England | August 27, 2015
Small but atmospheric bar a street below the Royal Mile near to the Castle. Itís a single room pub with the bar against one side wall to the rear. Traditional in style, it has a fairly heavy use of wood throughout and is easy on the eye for it. Thereís a considerable row of ales at the bar and no shortage of spirits behind it. As itís in the heart of the tourist area it doesnít take too long for this place to get full up but thereís small tables either side of the central doorway and some across from the bar. Itís all a bit of a squeeze at times.

Visited on 30th October 2016. Situated on the hill between the Grass Market and the Royal Mile this is a lovely old pub I canít believe I havenít rated. Large single roomed place, bar with beer served by air pressure adds a lovely traditional feel to the place. Good range of regional cask beers, prices decent, service good. Once youíve got a beer you can retire to the seating with the really small, narrow table fixed to the floor. A popular spot and rightly so.

Me and Loz visited here on Saturday 15th March 2014. Weíve been here a few times before with Craig & Stella but never got around to rating the place. This time we were on our own and visiting fairly early in the day (approx noon) the bar is on a lovely bendy cobbled street and comes across as one of the more historic venues in Edinburgh, certainly that Iíve been to. Its a smallish one room place with the bar on the right hand side and centrally located. There is a lot of wood and old maps on display, the bar has a good selection of beers on tap, in fact it is the dispense method that is very interesting with a brass type lever which is pulled to one side to dispense the beer, quite a rare and unusual type of dispense I gather. Beer choice was good, I had a superb Alechemy Oynx Loz had a Fyne Ales IPA (Hurricane?) There were a few people in here but it was generally a little quiet. It is a nice ambience, relaxed but with a sort of historic classy feel about it. Definately one of my favourite Edinburgh bars.

Visited at lunchtime on Saturday 8th Decemeber í12. 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!

A heavenly little pub with a solid range of cask beers; but the highlight here is certainly the whisky. The ambiance in here is simple and the vibe convivial. The pricing is fair, the staff very friendly and helpful. The cask range is not overly progressive but with an emphasis on the local thereís lots of fun stuff to be had.

One of Edinburghís top spots. Absolutely worth a visit.

Traditional bar close to the tourist masses, it was packed both times we visited. Seemed to be a reasonable choice but it was hard to get to the bar. The beers were in decent nick, the ambiance is friendly. Really is worth a visit.

The rack of whiskeys is so alluring here, itís hard not to stare. I donít even think the back bar is stocked with anything else but whiskey. They basically replace the standard row of commercial spirits with a proud selection of single malts. As for beer...on our first visit the ales were not in great condition unfortunately. But that was mid-week during the day when turnover was probably bad. Returned during the weekend and all were in good shape and several of the taps had changed in a matter of days. The weekend crowd was fun, but certainly not a young or beautiful crowd. They have a decent bottle selection too. Oh! If you like pulled pork sandwiches there is a great little sandwich shop across the street called Oink! Only open during the day but itís awesome. This whole little area is cute.

Bow is the shit. Ok, the historic dispensation system doesnít really deliver the best pint, but the selection is large and ever-rotating. The whisky list is killer. The atmosphere is brilliant, historic. A must-visit in Edinburgh. Eat at Oink across the street.

8 casks. Lots of bottles. Cozy small pub. Reasonable prices. Nice location. Friendly service. I guess thatís all and thatís also what it takes.
