A decent proper pub serving good ale at reasonable, for Edinburgh, prices. The clientele is mainly men from all walks of life depending upon the time and day. Friendly with a good atmosphere. Thankfully it has not been tarted up over the years so it still has the interior of a bygone era. Don't be put off by the supposed lowlifes mentioned in the previous review as it is well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Deterred from entering by several varieties of lowlife outside the front door on a Wednesday afternoon.

Walked past many times without really noticing. Tonight, I am armed with the Camra book of pub crawls. Its not as detailed as it London equivalent, with tonights crawl having a grand total of three pubs in it.

As the bus dropped me off on the other side, I ventured in. Full of blokes, ranging from the "young but old looking" to those that could probably get a role in the walking dead as an extra.

Quickly served a really good pint of Flying Scotsman.... nowhere to sit, so I went outside to look at the traffic. Quickly engaged in conversation about football, edinburgh life, what I was doing up here and so on.

Very friendly punters, great pint but there are two more to check out, so I move on.

Will be back.

Of all the Edinburgh pubs I visited this was the one I had the greatest affection for. Still a great interior but lacking the opulence of the Cafe Royal or Bennets bar. But, above all, a real functioning pub with no pretensions to being a tourist honey trap or "gastro creche". An honest to goodness boozer. Notably clean and well presented. A lovely pint of "Flying Scotsman". Long may this place survive as it is. Some day all pubs will be this way (I wish!!!). A snapshot judgement based on a one pint visit I know. But a beautiful pub IMHO. Not just for the way it looks. But for the way it is.

This is a good stand up and sup type of boozer with a couple of good beers (Stewarts is very drinkable) and a nice atmosphere. It is at the end of princes Street near to where the old station used to be and will have a tram stop nearby (eventually). Impressive frontage which you can't miss. Worth a visit.
