Aqualung . left this review about The Playfair (Lloyds No 1)

Being a modern Lloyds on the edge of an "entertainment complex" I expected this one to be a total disaster. Well, it wasn't a disaster but reasonably OK. It's a smallish glass curved room with the bar on the left as you enter from the main road. It was doing a brisk trade with mainly shoppers on my early Thursday afternoon visit.
The bar has just two sets of three hand pumps that had Stewart's Edinburgh Gold and Cross Fire, one available soon, Deuchar's IPA , Kelburn Cart Noir and Peerless Shabam IPA. I went for one of the festival ciders (£3.35).
I'd be unlikely to return here but at least it was better than I had expected it to be.

As described a unit in the Playfair centre near the iron giraffes, a single room with rear counter. As it's a Lloyds there are only two three pull sets, one at each end of the counter. The service was excellent when I dropped in for breakfast and the beer OK, same sort of range as the Standing Order but obviously a bit reduced.

A Lloyds No1 located at the front of the omni centre. Quite a plain modern styled interior.
