Ian Mapp left this review about The Malt Shovel

Exactly what you would expect from a Greene King - all perfectly functional but very expensive. Pints all over £4, peaking at £4.70 for a GK Amplified.

Can get more for less elsewhere.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Malt Shovel

Taylor Walker pub with a multi-room, split-level layout featuring the traditional-style furniture and decor that you would expect. Also has a few small patio tables out on the pavement. However, what sets it apart from most of this chain's outlets is the decent selection of regional beers from the six handpumps: two from Houston (including Warlock, £4.10), two from Cairngorm, and one each from Alchemy and Loch Ness.

A Taylor Walker pub located down from the royal mile and close to Edinburgh Waverley train station. 5 real ales and food served. The pub has a split level interior.
