Small, bijou, characterful bar in a residential area close to the centre. Traditional in style, particularly inside, very eye catching outside. Locals use the bar with the occasional, but welcome visitor. Quite a reasonable range for the size of the pub.
Great little pub tucked away in the New Town. Two small rooms, one with the bar and a fireplace and the other styled as a library. Top notch ambiance, really. The beer was good and reasonably priced. Worth a trip for the experience alone.
A dinky little place tucked into amongst the mews houses in the new town. It’s a former wine merchant and very cosy and comfortable. There are just a couple of rooms on the ground floor - a small bar with a fireplace and shiny wooden barrels stacked on shelves behind the banquettes plus a tiny cabin-like room at the back with only two tables. I really liked it and it’s well worth visiting, not necessarily for the beer (although there were six or seven hand pumps) but for the lovely atmosphere.

Old school traditional Old Town Edinburgh bar, decent enough selection of cask at reasonable prices for the location.

A little bit of a step back in time, this. Ultra-traditional pub off the beaten track. Red walls and ceiling and carpet make a striking motif in the front bar; there’s also a comfortable ’library bar’ in the back. Six real ales, both Scottish and English. Not the most exciting of beer lists but you’ll have the beer in great condition and in lovely surroundings.
Visited Xmas 2014. The place is first and foremost a great little neighborhood pub, which also happens to have a few interesting and not so interesting cask ales on hand pump, they had five or six when I visited. I tried four of them, one was pretty decent, the rest were ok. The main reason to go here is however the service and the laid back atmosphere, pretty much only locals. Food served for lunch.
