Decent Pub with Plush downstairs function room
This is a compact but very decent watering hole and they do decent grub as well. Downstairs in the hide is far more spacious and plush surroundings. Dont let the rantings of a Chinese woman with a chip on her shoulder put you off. Getting queue jumped in busy pubs is just a fact of life and happens to well-mannered people all the time simply cos the hard pressed bar staff cannot possibly keep tabs on who is first and who is last.

Got queue jumped because of her race indeed. What a lot of bollox! It seems some people are all too keen to play the RACE card for their own good.

Prejudiced
I was disgusted at the service being the bar on the weekend of the Make Poverty History rally. I had been working since 7am as a volunteer steward and was relieved to have a break when I went with my friends to get ourselves a drink. The man behind the bar completely ignored me and let several people jump the queue before me. When he finally asked who's next, a much taller white man who had only just arrived at the bar said he was next. I piped up but the two men ganged up on me, a small chinese woman, and insisted that I was trying to jump the queue even when witnesses had agreed that I had been waiting for a long time and I was definately there first. The bartender told me that if I wanted to get served quickly to go somewhere else. I didn't want to get served quickly, I wanted to get served when I'm due to get served: before the queue jumper. I have lived in remote country Australia, known for its racism and I have been to bible belt America and I have never encountered such shamefully prejudiced behaviour before this incident. The man obviously did not like to serve people from ethnic minorities and I shall do him a favour by letting the public and the Edinburgh and Lothians Tourist Board know that non-white people can expect to be ignored at this pub.
