Alastair Barter left this review about Milnes Bar

So as Rob Camra previously said, Milnes Bar, 35 Hanover Street, and Milnes of Rose Street, 21-25 Rose Street are all part of the same pub. So I suppose listing Milnes of Rose Street separately would be confusing. Certainly looks a large pub with its two entrances.

Old Boots left this review about Milnes Bar

A single room pub with a cellar bar called the Little Kremlin also entered from Hanover Street, in spite of the name just the same stuff as the ground floor and not a vodka bar. The main bar counter is to the right against the back wall, six pulls here two of which were Greene King, an unattributed Edinburgh beer (probably Belhaven), two from Strathaven and one from Edinburgh brewery Friendly Fire. There are the usual clutch of Scottish kegs with Peroni and Stella thrown in. A nice enough old style bar but there are better on Rose Street, it does food but it's overpriced and fairly poor. The beer was ok but short measured, common enough in Edinburgh, but the Italian barman with all the charm of a dispeptic Rotweiller didn't help either. Seems to be used as a public toilet as they're in the basement, no idea why as JDW is just round the corner.

A Taylor Walker pub with a crescent shaped bar serving 5 real ales and food. I didn't visit the downstairs bar.
