About us

The best steak pie in Edinburgh to match the best variety of real ales and Scotch whiskys. We use both Aitken fonts and hand pump to ensure a great pint.

A haven for real ale aficionados and malt whisky fans alike, and with original oak timber detailing, the bar is beautifully designed in the style of celebrated Scottish architect, Alexander 'Greek' Thomson, and the staff aren't too bad looking themselves!.

Staff didn't really engage with us on entry, served as no queue at bar. They have a lip in the bar, it's just smaller than a pint, and I put my pint on it, the pint obviously tipped and split, I was mortified and apologised lots to the people around and the landlords that was serving the people next to me, he didn't look at me, acknowledge what had happen, or stop to help just got some blue roll and wiped a bit, I asked him to pass the roll so I could help and he ignored me and went back to pouring a pint, the bar was swimming he is the most RUDE and IGNORANT, manager I have ever met or encountered, I will never go back there and will let everyone know how rude the manager is, if your not a regular you can get tae.... RUDE!!!!

Standard old school pub. Decent pint, clean toilets, and friendly locals. Didn't have food but I think it's just basic pie n' beans etc. Seen a few workmen having lunch and it looked and smelled good. Recommend a pop in, if your passing.

Small, traditional local bar with excellent beer and spirit selection. The beer is always well poured and presented and the staff are knowledgeable and passionate about their products. The whole bar is spotlessly clean and has a laid back friendly atmosphere. Recommended.

A great local pub, with a fantastic, relaxed and friendly atmosphere with a great selection of beers and spirits. Lee the manager is a long-standing staff member with a very friendly and jovial manner and excellent customer service skills. Been going there for many years due to all its attributes.

Warm and comfortable old pub a short stroll from the Old Town. Really great range of beer and well served. Excellent pint of a classic pale ale, Scapa Special, from the Swannay Brewery on Orkney. Very quiet at lunchtime, strangely, not sure where everyone was.
