One roomed tenement pub that is very popular. A (nice) battle to get to the bar for friendly service.

Good Beer guide 2019 entry. Oakham Citra spot on.

Would return if in the area.

Small one bar pub, with friendly and knowledgeable service. Small but nice selection of real ale from Scottish micro breweries (Highland Brewing's excellent Orkney IPA and Raj from Tryst).
Friendly and chatty landlord, some lively locals and students.
Darkish and cosy interior, very nice experience.

totally shocked by this pub - having been in a couple of times in the past and always had good reviews, I and two friends went in for a beer. I asked for a pivo estivo (cracking pint from kelburn) and upon noticing no sparklers on the angram hand pulls asked for mine to be poured with a sparkler (i believe it gives more life to a golden ale) only to be told by the large bald barman "would you like cake with that" which I took as friendly banter, He then poured my pint without the sparkler. I said "I take it im not getting a sparkler used on my pint then?" to which he made a big show in front of the other customers of looking left to right and went "no we appear to be all out". I then said "well no thanks then i dont want a pint" to be told "is this some sort of joke?". by this point we had a all decided to leave. as we left we were subjected to shouts from the barman along the lines of "well no loss to me" and other things not to be printed. We then crossed to the meadow bar and had a cracking round of flying scotsman from caley (all poured with sparklers on!)

We called in for a pint (or two) before going to Mother India for a meal. A simple one-bar pub with bright exterior and a boistrous clientele when we visited (why do people shout at each other when they are sitting next to them?) Anyway, beer was good - again mostly Scottish micro-brewers. Worth a visit - it's on a street that runs parallel with Nicholson Street.

Good beer and good jukebox. Need any more? 8/10
