Way too crowded and quite a small pub if you don’t count the dining area. Some 3 casks, one of them is their own World’s End Beer which the bartender said is not really good... Loud, packed and touristy... don’t think I’ll stop by this one again.

With its distinctive Celtic lettering, from the outside the World’s End looks like the kind of dodgy joint you’d find in Kilburn High Road except that it’s painted blue rather than green. We opened the door and were confronted with a barrier and a sign saying “please wait to be seated”. There was no-one there to seat us, no way past this point and an overwhelming smell of food so we didn’t linger. Sitting in No. 1 High Street, opposite, we did see people coming out of another door but as there was no handle on the outside we hadn’t tried it. I realise my scores may be a little unfair, but that’s the way I saw it. (Visited 3 February 2017).

Narrow pokey traditional Belhaven Bar on the Royal Mile. 4 Belhaven Ales on tap. Satisfactory service. Nothing special but they have their own World’s End Beer so it is worth paying a visit if you are passing by.

Tourist pub with nothing to offer the serious real ale drinker. The food is subject to good reputation, but was nothing special on our visit. The Dark Island was in great shape and it was a nice place in terms of decor. But way too touristy.

A great place to eat. Beer selection is poor in that its a static 4 taps, and not particularly interesting ones. But the Quality of the Dark Island i had was Astounding. Good on a crawl if you need food. but can be busy and tricky to get a table.

Nice place in The Old Town. About three or four cask ales in good condition. Good burgers and nice service. I had The Orkney Dark Island and Greenking IPA.

A low ceilinged pub which exudes character. Dark wood everywhere, including the ceiling rafters, and the walls are either dark-wood panelled or the original stone of the building. We still talk about it.
