Will Larter left this review about Bennets Bar

We made the mistake of coming here after leaving Canny Mans just up the road, because this one suffers in the comparison. It doesn't help either that the place smelt strongly of cheap cooking oil, though food service appeared to have finished some time before as no one was eating. These two caveats aside, it's a pleasant enough place, with a long bar down the left hand side featuring seven hand pumps. The selection was mostly standard national brands such as Timothy Taylor Landlord, Marstons EPA, Caledonian Deuchars IPA and the house bitter whose provenance I didn't determine. The others were two from Allendale Brewery and one from Broughton, a seasonal beer called Winter Fire, which disappointingly tasted of nothing at all (or maybe it was overwhelmed by the cooking fat smell). A positive for me was that there was no music, just lively conversation. We were intrigued by one of the many and various pictures on the walls: this was an aerial drawing of the city of Edinburgh, dated 1868. We speculated as to whether this was imaginative or done from a balloon, as there are no hills or buildings high enough to give the view from the direction as depicted.
