Nice traditional boozer by the water in Leith. They have 8 cask ales from both Scotland and England. Williams Bros, Tryst, Tempest, Orkney and the like. Beer condition was good, but a couple of the pumps were off. They also have nice open fire to warm yourself on a cold Scottish day. A solid pub.
Very cosy pub near The Shore in Leith. Good selection of cask ales, many of which I had never seen before - mainly blondes/bitters though. Friendly service and very interesting decor. Great music and good whisky selection. Feels a very unique pub. Toilets were pretty horrible though!
The dried hops adorning the ceiling give you an idea of this pub’s focus. Note well however that apart from one Williams Bros keg tap there isn’t any keg or bottle to choose from. This is a real ale pub, with varied it all low boost choices for its seven casks, including - curiously - three from North Cotswold brewery... a tap takeover of sorts? Worth coming to at any rate.
A proper old alehouse, with proper locals who are happy to give you some of their banter at the expense of the bar staff. Lovely service of quality range of cask ales - the pint I had was in perfect condition. I didn’t try the food, but the aromas were agreeable. Overall, this should be a definite visit, should you visit Leith.
Nipped in on the way back to the hotel from dinner. Very ’pub’ vibe with lots of standard pub beers (Budweiser, corona etc all in the fridge). Didn’t see much craft beer, but there were a few cask ales
Visited during Edinburgh pubcrawl with Craig, Fin, Loz and Arjan. Nice cozy dark pub, lots of wood, good seating, lots of (feeling at home) atmosphere here, nice decoration of hops on the beams. Nice selection of cask ales.
