No longer a Nicholson's pub. Quite a dark interior with a central island bar serving real ale,"craft keg" and standard keg. Large courtyard if the weather is nice.

Large Nicholson's pub in the south of the city. Unusually for Edinburgh there's a large outdoor drinking yard which is very pleasant when the sun is shining. The inside is a mish mash of dining tables, stools, comfy sofa's and chairs etc. The usual standard Nicholson's menu is available. There were 4 handpumps on the bar serving changing guests. We had a different beer each and sadly both of them were pretty poorly kept. Not quite bad enough to send back, but not very good. It's a decent pub let down by a lack of cellarmanship.

A large, comfortable, one room lounge with a full island bar in the middle and a real fire in one corner. Seating is a mixture of low sofas and the customary pub chairs. There is a good range of beers on draught, including four real ales, although two of them were unavailable on the afternoon of my visit. The beer garden outside is as big as the interior and would be a pleasant place to sit in better weather.
