About the Pub
  With six cask ales, 15 malt whiskies, a good range of blended whiskies, and many other spirits, there is much here for the discerning drinker. Included is cask conditioned cider - a suspiciously pleasant tasting beverage that can affect one's balance in a sneaky fashion! Treat this one with caution! Food is available from 12pm - 2pm and 5.30pm - 8pm and like the drink is reasonably priced for the area. This is a traditional style bar with rooms going off it, lots of wood panelling and pub mirrors. There is plenty of comfortable seating and while quiet during the week, it fills up at the weekend with students and other young people. They have a dart board, an eclectic juke box, and the staff proudly claim, "this is a pub, not a theme bar". Nuff said. Disabled toilets.

fantastic little pub, great food and service
Love coming here often for a bite to eat. Surprisingly large inside, it has been recently been taken over by new management who have much improved the site.
Good atmosphere- busy, but not so much so that its uncomfortable or too loud. Staff are very friendly and attentive.
The menu offers a range of inventive gourmet burgers (i love the chilli burger- which comes with jalapenos, chili cheese, sour cream and a rich spicy sauce), as well as salads and sides. The burgers are generous in size and presented nicely, on wooden boards with a pot of coleslaw and string fries. Deserts are lovely too- try the toffee sundae...if you any room left!!
Fantastic range of drinks, including many beer choices and cocktails for under a fiver. Wine is jokely listed under cheap, good and great - meaning there is various price ranges. The beer and burger deal for under a tenner should not be missed!h
Would definitely recommend a visit :)h

Good Food, Good Beer, Bad Service
The food is amazing, the beer is superb. However, I arrived at 11 am one time with my girlfriend, and the watress informed us that it had opened at 10:30. We asked to be served, and she treated us like we were a nuisance, and that she did not want us there. We were the first ones, but we did not feel like we deserved such open contempt. Ultimately a bar is a service industry. Although the resaurant is providing great food and great beer, the staff can ultimately take away from the experience and scare customers away.

Very nice pub
Now under new managemand and called Holyrood 9a quite a nice pub with a brilliant selection of beers and friendly barstaff. Well worth a visit if you happen to be looking for a nice pub in Edinburgh.
