About the Pub
  Out of the way from the main drag this small, quaint bar has low ceilings and a welcoming feel. It's one of a number of cosy cellar bars in the New Town area of Edinburgh. The wood panelled walls are covered with mirrors and an Arga is sat ready with a pile of logs for the winter. Four real ales are on offer at the present time:- Woodfords, Ridleys Five Ring, Shepherd Spitfire and Cains F.A. There is a decent selection of New World wines starting at 9 a bottle. Bar food is available during the day. There is a pool table in the back room and a few tables have been set out ready for chess or cribbage.

Best Real Ale in Stockbridge/Newtown!
A mate and I popped in to this brilliant wee boozer last night to take in the champions league football with a few real ales. The ale was of the highest quality and the bar staff were also really helpful and knowledgable. Equally as good was the four screens on offer, two showing the Celtic game and two showing the Man U game. Definitely a great bar for lovers of beer and sport and will definitely return to try their food menu during the day which the locals assured me is excellent!

Great pub, great ale
Was drinking in this place recently and it made an excellent impression. The real ale is probably the best I've had in Edinburgh, especially the Deuchars. The place is well kept and the staff were all extremely friendly. Ten out of ten.

Home away from home
Lived across the street at 62 Cumberland St in 1995. My favorite pub aside from being the most convenient. Good memories, good ales (especially Red McGregor). Gave me a pale of water to flush the loo one day when the pipes froze. Very cozy and traditional with friendly bar staff.

Revisited in 2003. Loved it just the same.

the pub at the end of the road
a timeless wee bar at the end of a lovely new town street where you'll find good beer, good craic and really great company all taken care of by a friendly professional team. so all in all a great festival pub for pool and chat.

Fantastic bar in the way a pub used to be. Great staff and an eclectic bunch from gnarled locals to Yah's.
Atmosphere has recently made a great step change. Beware don't come in if you have to leave in the next fourty years.

First Class Boozer! What a pub SHOULD be like!
Excellent wee howf! Magical blend of customers which works well. The ale is most acceptable, as is the comely wench of a manageress, Mags, whose undivided attention to all her customers is worthy of a mention.
