About the Pub
  Famous among city drinkers under a previous name, Jim’s Inn, this was one of the first Edinburgh pubs to be allowed to open all day. Rumours abounded that the City Councillors chose the worst pubs for the all-day opening experiment so it would fail. The opposite happened and there are those that say this was brilliant double bluff. Before this bars closed from 2.30pm to 5pm, which was a load of Puritanical tyranny! Anyway, nowadays the Arcade’s a fine bright bar with an upstairs room mainly used for dining. The bar has two real beers, standard kegs, 15 malts and a good selection of wines. Food is available all day till nine at night, (12.30pm – 4pm on Sunday), cooked in their own kitchen and is very reasonable pub grub, ranging from breakfasts to steaks. The actual bar is granite and the modern décor is both homely and comfortable. Amenities are fine but all upstairs.

I'm sad to say The Arcade is no more. Times and people sincerely missed.

Colin, Cheree, Beefy et al. hope you're doing well.
