I foolishly went there again this evening - my excuse is that some of my friends go there. Beer no better than average - disappointing for a formerly (?) CAMRA rated pub. Mainly 'own brand' beers. The budget decrease of 1p was swiftly followed by a 6p increase. The attitude of manager was not good, so I left...

Having been here many times in the past both with family and friends... we particularly liked that the establishment was dog friendly. We have brought our dog many times with no problems. Today our food was merely warm and after being there for 45 mins we were then told by the owner that "don't worry we are dog friendly but would like you to sit at a side table with him tucked away!" My wife and I were furious as this was in full earshot of other customers and we had already been sitting there for 45mins. We wouldn't have really minded if we were told when we first arrived. From a pub that seemed to love dogs it seems that is no longer the case. Unfortunately we will not be back due to the way were were "spoken to" like "schoolchildren"!! Terrible customer service! Luckily there are plenty of other places we can go slightly further afield.

Went to this pub on and off for over 20 years until that is the
disastrous "upgrade" a couple of years ago.... prices went through the roof and most regulars decamped to more congenial surroundings. Popped in before Xmas to see if there had been any improvement but if anything it's worse.
Main problem seems to be the "manager" who appears to regard customers as a nuisance and will quite happily ignore newcomers who dare to enter his domain.In fact his basic social/pub skills are so poor it makes you wonder what on earth he is doing in the licensed trade in the first place.
Pub survives nowadays on elderly, wealthy locals who don't appear bothered by sky high prices and crap service. Be warned! if you're under 65 you will probably be the youngest person in the place !
All in all a great shame as this used to be a lovely friendly watering hole but
is now about as much fun as an evening spent in the TV lounge of an old folk's home.
Well worth avoiding until it gets a proper landlord who knows how to run a pub.

Came across this on a walk between Leith and Granton. It now seems to be part of the Greene King empire and was actually pleased to drink two different Belhaven beers on handpump, which I'd never had before - the only examples being keg. Nothing remarkable taste wise but they were well kept beers, as were the better beers from one of the micros. Food was reasonablly priced and staff welcoming. Views over the Forth beautiful!
