  • Nice place, conveniently located in the tourist zone 😉 but is intimate and relatively quite in a nice little alley steps easy from the main road. I'm not sure about the process but I assume you can find more fairly priced places, about 4 quid a (precisely measured) whiskey shot, but never the less, we had a very nice time as the atmosphere is very nice. One staffer was very nice, the other was patient enough, both offered good and professional service. Bathrooms are upstairs, pretty nice, I would come back again for sure. Cheers

  • Cosy and they do a lovely hot toddy. Gets very busy but if you can get a seat it is a lovely place to drink and chat

  • Nice wee pub with a great selection of beers. I would recommend trying the belhaven black... Only downside, as it is so small, if It is busy, it becomes very warm, very quickly!

  • Full of atmosphere (and a fire!). A great little tavern in a close just off the Royal Mile. Good range of beers and ciders

  • We had the finest whiskey of our stay in Edinburgh here. Very cozy inside with outdoor seating. Knowledgeable tapsters.
