About the Pub
  This very small fronted pub dates back to 1785. The front room is so small that the bar takes up most of the room! To one side of the bar is a tiny nook where, it is reputed,'ladies of the night' would sit and await customers. The bar itself is well stocked with a good choice of ales, whiskies and wines. Homemade food is cooked in a tiny kitchen at lunchtimes and there is a self serve breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays for 4.50. There is a lovely stone walled back room with booths and tables. Live music is held in this back room once a week. The pub has a very friendly atmosphere and attracts all types of clientele.

A Luvly Pub
Stopped off here for a drink after our Water of Leith walk, and what a luvly pub, sat throught the back with comfy couches and an open fire, a great amosphere, people who I assume where locals chatting to each other from other tables, no music or tv in this area, a great place to chill and relax after our walk, the bar area was busy with locals, football on the tv, but a friendly welcoming pub with a really nice barmaid, recommend a visit, its a proper friendly pub with atmosphere

Stick to making Whisky
Tried the Famous pie last Friday
and it was disapointing the pastry was rock hard and not much meat in filling.

Great local!
Carriers is my favourite place in leith. Staff is always helpful and friendly. Great atmosphere. Never got a bad pint in there. Everybody seems to be complementing pies only but there is so much to it. Loads of different bottles and I think over 15 drafts... Great place.
