Easily the best beer bar in Edinburgh. The Hanging Bat is a split level with a good amount of seating. Power-raters will be glad to hear that all beers are available in 1/3ds...but weirdly enough not pints (although this doesnít bother me). Beer selection is spot-on, itís clear to me the people in charge know whatís going on in the UK beer scene well. Tap selection seems to rotate frequently. Helpful and knowledgeable staff all-round. Great place and probably one of the best in the UK.

Cool hipster ambiance, large and varied selection, friendly staff. Not cheap, but then not generic either. Iíd be in here on every nightout if I lived in Edinburgh.

Very cool place, good selection of imports. I like the design of bar a lot. Definitely worth the highest rate of Edinburg beer pubs

Visited on a Saturday night during a De Molen event. Our small group had standing room only because this very large bar was packed and I had the feeling that was more of a typical Saturday night than a result of the beers on that night. Beer was in good condition, and staff served the crowd as quickly as possible. As De Molen kegs went dry, other beers were put on, which were also interesting to me. Not much more to say about the ambiance. No idea if food was still available when I arrived but it seemed like ordering would be a disaster given the crown that evening.

Nice place split between 3 levels makes it feel cosy, music wasnít loud. They didnít have any of thereís on tap at the time, but the selection was good, even if a fair few of the taps werenít new to me I could still find plenty to choose from. The (cute) bar staff were all very friendly and happy to have a chat and a laugh. Didnít try the food, although the list was short. Price might be an issue for some 5 x 1/3 for £13 regardless of strength. Well worth a visit, but maybe not 98/100

One of the two brewpubs worth a visit in Edinburgh. Was there back in August. Nice looking place, open and interesting layout. Not too noisy and no loud music. Great service, fast and knowledgeable. Very decent selection of taps, though not that many casks as I expected, some bottles but I wasnít interested in them. Menu looks very decent for a pub, but half of the stuff was unavailable. Ended up with a brisket burger that was sweet. Prices are decent, lots of options for half and thirds pints. Very enjoyable place, maybe shouldíve visited it one more time, outside the festival.

minutemat  (138) Shrewsbury, England | August 31, 2016
Ideally situated a short walk from the castle and the main tourist drag of the Old Town. We came here from Holyrood Park on the hottest day of the year so we and the dog were in need of refreshment (yep they are dog-friendly!). Itís perhaps smaller than I expected, but with plenty of higher and lower level seating, laid out so thereís plenty of private areas. Draft selection is as youíd expect from a very good independent craft bar, nice and varied with all bases covered. I picked a flight of 5 thirds for £13, all new releases and all tasting excellent. We also got a hot dog each and although I got pulled pork instead of Chili Con Carne it was good quality stuff so I didnít mind. In all, this ticked all the boxes for my ideal craft bar.. dog friendly, varied draft selection, nice relaxing atmosphere and reasonably priced. Also an extensive bottle selection too. We only visited one bar on this visit to Edinburgh but weíll be back.

Visited on the 11th August of 2016. 3 beers tasted. First of all, they donīt attend on the tables but this seems to be a Scottish thing. Prices are OK. Selection is excellent. Ambiance is superb!!!! Relaxing cosy area and some other busy spots. Really enjoyable place.

Visited the 23rd July 2016 - nice modern place near to the castle. Quiet easy to find. Good beer selection with really nice menu, the only bad point is itís impossible to order more than 2/3Ö I didnít†check the bottle selection but I think it will be solid as the draft menu. Food is tasty but itís more snackÖ I didnít fine a real meal. Ambiance is really nice and service is friendly. I recommended this place, one of the best place in Edinburgh.
