Jon B left this review about The Royal Oak

an excellent single roomed bar serving a few real ales. An incredibly convivial place tonight with a singer doing traditional Irish folk songs. Brilliant authentic place in central Edinburgh.

hondo . left this review about The Royal Oak

Located just down from the National Museum of Scotland and a short walk from the Festival Theatre. A small bar area at street level with a lounge bar downstairs (shut during my visit). 3 real ales. Live music advertised.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about The Royal Oak

Renowned as a folk music haunt, with frequent impromptu sessions in the cosy street-level bar and regular gigs in the larger (relatively speaking) downstairs room. Real ale was temporarily unavailable, but the keg Northern Light pale ale from the Orkney Brewery was fair enough. (NB - Review dates from August 2009.)
