Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Clep Bar

Built as part of a housing scheme by Edinburgh brewers Bernard's in 1941 (and thus a very rare wartime new-build), set high up above the city in Hilltown. Very well-preserved interior with 2/3rd-height wood panelling in the public bar and a splendid little front lounge (featuring a hatch in a door rather than a counter, and famously retaining its operational bell-pushes). Walls adorned with sporting memorabilia relating to local heroes (and in some cases, former customers). Getting busy in the bar before the nearby football on this visit, but ignoring the temporary 'home supporters only' notice on the door, I took refuge in the lounge with my pint of McEwan's 70/- (£3.20), grateful once again that treasures such as this still exist in the 21st century. Although the lack of real ale is a shame, it offers a friendly welcome and is run by people with a real interest in the heritage features, and thus it's well worth making a special visit.
