ROB Camra left this review about Mathers Bar

A bit of a shock when I walked into this pub. It used to be a traditional Edinburgh vertical drinking bar. A bit tatty at the edges, but still a decent place for a drink. It's now been refurbished to the point where I hardly recognise the place. Two levels, the top area has dining tables & chairs the bottom half higher tables and a little snug area in the window. 4 handpumps and my pint was in good condition. I was a little reluctant to bring the other half in here, expecting it to be still as is was, but she really liked it in its new guise.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Mathers Bar

Interesting-looking pub, just far enough from the city centre to avoid having all character refurbished out of the place. Plenty of original features inside and out, retaining a pleasantly old-fashioned (if slightly rough) feel. Small bar at street level, with a slightly larger seating area up a few steps. Five real ales on handpump, including a decent pint of Stewart No. 3 at £3.00. Also has a large range of malt whiskies. Well worth seeking out if you're not looking for something too refined.
