Brilliant bar in Edinburgh, good selection of cask ales. Enormous whisky selection, bar staff knowledgeable and friendly, will go again when in Edinburgh

Desverger  (159) Copenhagen, Denmark | April 1, 2016
(Visited Saturday 20/02/2016 early afternoon) – We came inside out of the pouring rain and manged to snag a small table (very small – but still enough to rest your beer) had quite a few Scottish cask ales that were all in good nick. Friendly efficient staff, good selection of Scottish beers which is what I came for. A cosy and lovely traditional old world feeling to this place, well located centrally and well worth visiting. Loved this place, highly recommended.

Old brown pub with nice selection of whiskeys and real ales. Found some rarer Scottish breweries on tap. Because I visited during daytime on a sleepy Monday, and had no trouble finding seating. The bad: Small bottle selection.

This is one of Edinburghs finest bars, Can get very busy, and has the narrowest tables i have ever seen. The Beer selection is Really good and the Quality Excelent. May not be as trendy as any of the grassmarket pubs but you’ll be hard pushed to find a decent beer in the grassmarket. Id say a must if your in the area.This is my TOP equal choice of Edinburgh bars (along with Cloisters)

Beer pub with a traditional set-up just off Grassmarket. Seven cask and a handful of keg beers from Loch Ness brewery are available. They also have a brilliant bottle selection which includes Scottish craft names such as Elixir alongside international heavyweights. I think the bottles are a bit in the pricey side, but some of this stuff is hard to find (especially in England), and the cask & keg are reasonable enough to compensate. The bar also has a pleasant feel: well-loved without being rammed, and a bit old-fashioned without being the least bit twee.

Cozy and traditional, but lively little pub just below the Castle. Although in attractive part of town doesn’t feel touristy. Friendly people. Gets very busy especially in the evening. Good selection of real ales, mostly local breweries. Great selection of whisky. Good prices. Well worth visiting.

ManVsBeer  (1797) Hebden Bridge, England | August 27, 2015
Small but atmospheric bar a street below the Royal Mile near to the Castle. It’s 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. There’s a considerable row of ales at the bar and no shortage of spirits behind it. As it’s in the heart of the tourist area it doesn’t take too long for this place to get full up but there’s small tables either side of the central doorway and some across from the bar. It’s all a bit of a squeeze at times.

Good traditional bar, the more so for its position just off the Royal Mile on the way to Grassmarket,. Attracts a largely male crowd but without the attitude. Spruce but yet well-worn. A great bar that has transcended the generations and is an essential port of call on any tour of Embra. Great range of casks and a growing range of the cool and the good in bottles.

Leighton  (1008) London, England | July 7, 2015
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 there’s lots of fun stuff to be had.

One of Edinburgh’s top spots. Absolutely worth a visit.
