This is a very traditional style pub, plenty of standing room old style with some seating at the far side of this large one room. Only one real ale available at the time of visiting, but I was assured more was on the way. Situated near the start of Princes Street and about equal distance from either Haymarket or Waverley train stations.

I often used to call in this bar for a last one on my way home to Dean Village. Over the last few years it's improved quite a bit and the clientele have changed as well. It's a square room which is mainly aimed at vertical drinking, but there are leather settles around the walls with tables and chairs as well. There are a couple of large screens showing the football whenever there's a match on, but it's not really a football pub. It's very handy for the last buses as well as many of the stops are outside the pub door. There are usually 3 or 4 cask ales on the bar. Nothing really unusual for Edinburgh but they're usually well kept. They also have a decent range of malts. Old windows and a decent bar back along with brewery mirrors etc add to the ambience. It's a decent pub that's on the way up in my opinion.
