About the Pub
  If you arrive in Edinburgh via train, this is probably the first Bar/Restaurant you'll see. It's painted bright purple and is popular with the passing trade of tourists. On Saturdays, was classed as a pre-club party venue with DJ Betty Ford. From 9:45 pm till 1:00 am was the meeting place for the pre-Mercado club crowd.

Tourists-avoid this place!
I remember going to this bar on several occasions in 1997-1998 and what a nice place it was, sitting on of the best spots in Edinburgh, one could sit at the window and enjoy fabulous views of the Castle and gardens. In December 04 I went back only to enter one of the worst bars in Edinburgh. Tacky pictures of food adorning the outside windows, a filthy smoke filled bar, the seats that offered that fab view have been removed and replaced by a pool table, bar staff were not only inflexible but ignorant and just plain scruffy - and lacked even the basics in appropiately handling customer complaints. This bar should be one of the best in Edinburgh its now one of the worst. Tourists - avoid this place there are loads of other fabulous bars around the city.
