Quite a plain interior but 5 real ales on tap.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Stockbridge Tap

Attractive modernised exterior; a theme reflected within the refurbished interior with its light wood furniture and decor (although some old tiling remains). Large windows, so light inside. Irregularly-shaped, with a comfortable rear lounge area. Two welcome stove-type fires. Five of the seven handpumps in operation, with three beers from Stewart Brewing including Zymic (£3.35). Overall, well worth a visit if walking along the Water of Leith pathway or visiting the nearby botanical gardens.

Something of a mix between modern-style wooden floors and tables, plenty of daylight flooding in at the front and a more traditional feel towards the rear. The name might indicate a bias towards the craft-keg, new-micro end of the market but, in fact, the beers offered are all perfectly straightforward: nothing too left field, but nothing too mainstream either on the 7 pumps.

Food was, I'd say, traditional 'comfort' food, rather than anything with pretensions towards 'gastro'.

If you're visiting the city, you're not likely to stumble across this one but, if you're in the area, or fancy getting out of the centre, the Tap is well worth a few hours of your time.

The promising name was justified by the variety of well kept real ales on offer, including price and strength details. I found the bright lighting and modern decor a bit out of kilter with the real ale pub ambience, however. It would be better if it was darker and more old fashioned looking.

Clive Thompson left this review about The Stockbridge Tap

New looking pub both inside and out but has retained what perhaps was it's original layout, including a serving hatch at the rear of the bar. The light woods and cream decor give it a nice bright feel, perhaps too bright in the front bar when the sun shines. Walls are covered in old Edinburgh Brewery mirrors including a large one advertising Ushers Pale Ale. Deserving of its 'Tap' tag with 6 real ales on all displayed on a blackboard showing brewery strength and price, around £3.00 a pint.
