I had a terrible experience in that place and will never go back. It is filthy and the owner can be rude and extremely unwellcoming. I am never going back.

A great and authentic victorian interior. Nicely un-packed compared with the other pubs in the Royal Mile area.
The bar girl was very friendly, but I realised that the reason nobody frequents this place is that the beer is truly lousy.
My entire group left most of their drinks behind.
For some reason, all of the tables and chairs are bolted down here. They obviously want to preserve the period glasswork.

Great oasis just off the Royal Mile tourist strip. Don't appear to do real ale, but the Guiness is fine. Quirky hours and closed Sundays, but that adds to the charm.

Don't know about a good pint of 80/-

... it's a good beer mug of 1980. And that is generous - I'm having 1962 shouted at me. Truth is it isa good pint, no other options and it is a funny place. Why oh why is there so much space behind that bar? Gotta like it.

Being my first time in Edinburgh drinking properly I sampled this one at the end of the day around 10 pm and was not disappointed. It was my favourite of the session with it's 30s or 40s music, proper beer mugs, old fashioned landlord and a nice photo of the queen behind the bar.
