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.

Looks like a lot of modern Craft beer pubs. Not too big but plenty of space and seating. Some 20 kegs and casks, nice Gin selection. Thereís a 50l homebrewing system in the pub as well for some who like playing. Selection is quite nice, beer well kept and tap takeovers take place often Iíd say. Was there for Stone takeover and 2 other nights, never did it seem too crowded. Staff is nice and friendly enough and pretty quick. Food is not so great, portions are not that big and itís not that tasty... Iíll skip food next time. Overall a very good place Iíll visit again next time Iím in town.

Well, the Hanging Bat wasnít at all what I expected. For some reason Iíd imagined a traditional old style place, and this is quite the opposite. Itís modern and trendy, almost factory style, with a mezzanine floor and a semi-basement room. The beer range was as expected though - six casks (with two off) and an impressive list of fourteen kegs. (Visited 2 February 2017).

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.

Fantastic place! The beer list is full of local beers, both cask and tap and the food is super delicious. Wanna go back!
