About the Pub
  This is an Edinburgh institution with an upstairs and downstairs bar; it has been the centre of much musical activity down the years. With two cask ales, a wide selection of malts and blended whiskies, this is a pub where musicians often gather after playing elsewhere. Although predominatly a folk music hangout, other types of music occasionally erupt in the sessions that take place here. It has been a pub for over a century and a half. Upstairs is a smallish square bar with an Edwardian gantry that is brightly lit and has lots of standing room. Downstairs there is a cellar type lounge with more seating than standing room. The only things available to eat here are crisps and nuts - this is a place for carousing and singing. The upstairs bar has music every night, and downstairs on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
