One of my favourite bars in the UK and certainly my favourite in Edinburgh. All Scottish air fonts for dispense, which are a fairly rare thing these days. Around 8-10 draught beers available, all in great condition. Wooden flooring and bench style seating. Fantastic old brewery mirrors on the walls and a superb malt whisky menu to tempt you, should you feel the need to stray from the beer range. Outstanding.

Came here twice during vacation since itís so near tourist section and so awesome. Cool ambiance of old word. Nice cask selection with Scottish and English brews. But as a scotch lover this is paradise. Staff was super knowledgeable and found some real whisky gems for me and I mixed it with occasional casks pretty great and prices not bad.

Tim Webb  (447) Bristol, England | August 20, 2015
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.

Small, old fashioned and a great example of cask ale dispense through traditional Scottish air pumps. Great whisky choice as well. Possibly the best cask outlet in the centre of town.

This was my favorite of the Edinburgh pubs/bars. It wasnít the nicest place, and it didnít have the best selection, but the warm ambiance, the wood paneling, and the friendly staff all worked together to make it a place I did not want to leave. About 8 casks.

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.

This was the first place I went to last time I was in the UK, and if Iíd known itíd be easily the best pub I was to come across in Edinburgh/Glasgow/London I wouldíve stayed a lot longer! Beautiful single room decorated with beer paraphernalia, but in a very ordered way as opposed to the typical Belgian random junk arrangement. Completely silent, yet it seems totally natural. Folks reading the paper or chatting quietly. Bar guy was very friendly, knowledgable and willing to offer suggestions with the beers. Had a killer pint of Punk IPA and a few other things. Far more interesting and less windy than the castle.

Stylish and characterful real ale and whisky pub near the National Library. Excellent selection and fast rotation of seven cask ales, served by classic Scottish air pressure dispense. The real ales are often from smaller and independent breweries. At one of my visits I found Brewdog Punk IPA on cask. Has also got a big selection of Scottish malts. They certainly know how to handle ale and whisky at this one roomed pub. Definitely one of the very best for beer drinking in Edinburgh. Last visited 12.11.2008 with Finn and a few other Norwegians.
