This one has been well described below. It's basically a square room with wooden floorboards and rugs. It was fairly quiet on my early Wednesday evening visit. Annoyingly the toilets are down some stairs.
The bar has eight hand pumps which had one unused, Tryst Peach Pale Ale, EKG & Blathan, Kelburn Dark Moor & Goldihops and Redcastle Nobleman & Red Lady. I went for the Dark Moor (£3.30) which was in good nick.
I don't mind seeing low ABV beers in pubs but when a range of seven has five at 4.0% or less and the other two are just 4.2% and 4.5% then I start to get the hump. I thought that let this one down badly and preferred the JDW. It's GBG 2017 listed and was a big disappointment for me.

Dunny’s best-known ale pub (not that there are many to choose from). This is a corner building with 90s-style ‘traditional alehouse’ refit interior; worn wood flooring, rugs, varnish wood panelling and bench seating. Intricate carved wood dados caught the eye, as did bits of old breweriana on the windowsill. Six ales on, a mix of fairly dull stagers and some excellent Scottish micros - Courage Best, Caledonian Deuchars IPA & Edinburgh Castle, Edenmill Clock (excellent shape) & IPA and Tryst Carronade. Also a basic selection of Belgian beers. Slow service behind the bar. Subterranean bogs, London-style.

Update
Bookended my holiday with another visit here at the end – good beers this time from Orkney (Northern Light and Edenmill Brewery Blonde) with a different member of staff who was somewhat less lackadaisical than his predecessor. TV showing News 24. Easily the best traditional ale-led boozer in town.

A traditional alehouse type pub, with eight hand pumps on the bar and a friendly welcome from behind it. Wood panels are dark varnished, as are the tables, and the walls are painted the colour of cigarette-smoke stains.

The beers available on our first visit were Courage Directors, Deuchars IPA and Edinburgh Castle, Eden Clock Brew from St Andrews, two from Scottish Borders and one from Alechemy; the following night two of these had gone off and not been replaced, presumably because it was the quieter part of the week. They also have a range of bottled beers advertised, including Duvel. The only downside for me was the radio station playing at a volume that was hard to ignore, but if this doesn't bother you, you can mentally add an extra point to my score for this very good pub.
