A really good pub, fit for the modern age, welcoming, traditional, elegant, and absent of music, thank God. Craft fast food, several better kegs, a lot of interesting, mainly new Scottish cask ales and a few bottles. Arguably the best of its kind in town.

Nice place off the beaten track. Nice traditional feel to the place and a good range of cask Scottish Micros. Stopped for lunch and the chips were amazing. If you’re in Edinburgh pop along to Cloisters. It’s worth the walk

Nice and relaxed place with a wide range of mainly Scottish beers which aren’t overpriced. Recommendable.

Good selection of beer, often a focus on Scottish cask. Very recently added two more keg lines so expect to see the selection improve. Has had a frequently changing kitchen, don’t think I’ve ever eaten here though. Good staff, good prices, nice pub.

Visited on Saturday lunch time so it was very quiet. Kind of traditional pub. Some great local ales on tap one of them was brewed for the pub only. Didn’t check the bottle selection and food. Friendly and informative staff. Card paymet charged with +40p extra which is strange. Worth a visit.

Booze hall type layout. Mostly cask ales in terms of interesting beers, always in good condition. Staff are friendly, service is good. Decent pub all round but not exactly a Willy Wonka factory of craft beer, always something worth drinking though

Theydon_Bois  (1034) Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, England | December 21, 2014
Visited on Saturday 08/12/12 around 4pm. Just a 2 or so minutes walk from the Hanging Bat, Cloisters is a trad pub in an old stone building. Pretty spacious inside, the way the furniture is laid out does not make this place feel cramped. 8 beers on cask during my visit, largely Scottish micros, supplemented with one or two Engels, all in good condition. Lively and friendly Saturday afternoon crowd all in good spirits, service was fine. Decent boozer and well worth a visit before or after the Bat.

Friday 24th Oct 2014: rammed with happy customers. Friendly, busy staff and good conditioned cask ales makes the mini-scrum at the bar worth it. We found the girls seats and my mate and I stood. Came here years ago and it was the same: very popular with locals and tourists alike, mostly locals on both my visits. Nice bar but too small for the amount of customers it can cram in. A proper drinking bar with character.

Visited the bar for lunch. We had a very well made burger with some very good scottisch ales. Friendly service, well chosen beer menu with rotating taps. Worth a visit!

Nice selection of beers, great prices, and everything can be had in 1/4ths with no markup. Fantastic service.
