Broad selection of draft beers, although the quality varies wildly. Knocked a lot of points off the ambiance as the place is obsessed with footy. Staff polite.

Traditional ale pub with 8 cask ales, the left hand of the bar seemed to have the guest ales while the right was the more predictable ones (Bass, Deuchars). Beers were in good condition though would have preferred a plain pint glass than a branded Guiness glass when not drinking Guinness. Was in for the football and was a good place to watch it, friendly environment and some nice old fashioned pub signs. Limited but decent selection of Belgian bottles.

Traditional pub with a spacious interior and lots of small tables to sit at, very comfortable on a late Sunday evening. Eight cask ales on offer, with lots of interesting Scottish regionals, mostly in good shape. Fair pricing, friendly barstaff. Not quite as nice as its Newington namesake but still one of the better pubs on our last northside circle crawl.

Fairly large place a short walk away from the city center. Good selection, around 10 cask beers. Some local brews available. Wouldn’t consider it a must visit, but not a bad place to stop for a pint if you’re around.

Beautiful alehouse with a large selection of beers of variable distinction. The cask beer is well kept. There seems to be a lack of the very new innovative breweries but that in itself is somehow refreshing.

Good old fashioned boozer with a good selection of cask ales. Beer was in good condition and the staff moderately friendly. Good place to watch football with a decent beer.

Big open pub at a handy place to dive off the bus on the way into town. The clientelle was pretty young when we were in there, bordering on the boisterous, I reckon there was a stag party mustering before setting off. Beers were average in quality, but I did get 3 new ratings in there. Worth a look even if it doesn’t blow you away.

Fine selection, friendly atmsophere, nice beer profile for the pub. But both beers sampled were a bit off, the cellarmanship is not totally up to it.
