Quinno _ left this review about Bennets Bar

Another CAMRA National Inventory pub, this one is of national importance and upon entering it’s very easy to see why - a fantastic late Victorian interior, largely intact. So much to see in what is actually quite a small space it almost bowls you over; from the magnificent bar gantry with inlaid clock, the carved wood servery, the leaded stained glass at the front, to the jumbo arched glass walls with various Grecian figures depicted in the surround tiling through to the beautiful coloured flower dado/cornice, all set-off by sodium lighting. A quiet pub, so unspoilt by bleeps and looming muted TV sets. Three cask on the go; Stewart's 80/- and two from Loch Leven. My half of the latter’s Outlaw King was in great shape (NBSS 4). A must-visit pub in Scotland, let-alone Edinburgh.

Another perfect pub with a classic interior. Excellent beer. Mix of punters.

Enjoyed my visit and would go again when in area.
