Blackthorn _ left this review about The Standing Order (JD Wetherspoon)

A large and impressive looking Wetherspoon’s with the main entrance on George Street but also a further back entrance in Rose Street, it’s very impressive architecturally and is certainly worth popping in for that alone.

Internally it’s largely all one open plan room with a very high and ornately decorated ceiling which is certainly the main feature of the pub and wouldn’t look out of place in a National Trust property. In comparison, the rest of the pub is fairly unremarkable with a mixture of dark polished wood and blue patterned carpet on the floor and lots of tables that were quite tightly packed in. Some alabaster pillars at one end might have also made for an interesting feature if it weren’t for the large projection screen slung between them that was showing a football match. On one wall were a number of segregated seating booths with dark wood panelling on the adjacent wall.

Beers on tap were Hobgoblin Gold, Belhaven St. Andrews, Bishop’s Finger, Cerveja Curitiba, Thornbridge Jaipur, Orkney Northern Light, Jenning’s Sneck Lifter, Deuchars IPA, Wildcat, Abbott Ale, Orkney Dark Island, Doom Bar, Titanic Plum Porter and Strathaven Fat Santa. Ciders meanwhile were Strongbow, Strongbow Dark Fruit, Thatcher’s Gold and Magners.

Grand Wetherspoons that should be visited for the architecture alone. High quality beer at bargain prices.

As noted below this is a rambling and ornate bank conversion and is probably the best of the four Central Edinburgh JDWs. On my Thursday afternoon visit there were no Stag or Hen dos.
The clock was ticking towards the time my train back to London was due to depart so I didn't have time to take in all that much. I did note that the standard guest price was £2.89 so went for a festival cider (£3.35). There are three banks of six hand pumps that had a good range of Scottish beers but with some doubling up.
I thought this was a good but expensive JDW and I have to say that overall I preferred many of the smaller town outlets in Scotland.
What Pub informs us that they serve pints from 09:00 so there is hope for Scotland yet!
