Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Guildford Arms

Splendid triangular pub with rich decoration including many interesting features such as a high, tiled ceiling, mezzanine balcony and the engraved windows. 'Only' nine of the ten handpumps were in use during this coronavirus-era revisit, but all from smaller breweries (mostly Scottish): Cromarty Whiteout, Fyne Ales Jarl, Pentland IPA from Stewart Brewing, Loch Lomond Silkie Stout, Mobberley Brewhouse Dark Winter plus a couple each from Shiny and Orkney. A bit hidden away, but right in the city centre near the East end of Princes Street and well worth seeking out.

This pub I consider one of the top pubs in Edinburgh. From the Waverley Train Station cross Princess street and around the corner to the right. Perfect for a first and for a last stop. Beautiful interior surroundings on two levels with more food orientated upstairs. Lots of choices of beers and ales. All earlier reviews of this pub still stand.

Cannot add much to Blackthorn's detailed description only that this late Victorian pub was elaborately designed and established in 1896 at the height of the Temperance movement and has been operated by the Stewart family ever since.All the features are stunning but i was impressed by the revolving door,the ornate plastering and the upstairs gallery.
There were 10 cask beers on the go all functioning and plumped for the Orkney Dark Island which was spot on. If you have never visited the pub and are close to Waverley station with time on your hands this is the place for you. You wont be disappointed.
