A quiet lunchtime visit to this bar is probably not the best time to experience it and probably better when it has a decent evening crowd in. Clean and functional with a decent Ale and beer range as mentioned below but I just thought it was all a bit sterile and lacking any real character.
The pub itself is on two levels with a large bar space dominated by the circular serving area at street level, and then a function room downstairs.
Six pumps all in operation with quite a good choice of independent Scottish breweries and I went for a couple of halves from the Orkney Brewery in the shape of Raven and Meridian Best Bitter.

Modernish and dare I say it attempting a craft ethos, beerwise at least. There are six pulls of small Scots brewery beers plus 8 taps of Scottish kegs only one which is a national brand, Tennants, and includes a cloudy cider. Furnished elegantly with modernish conventional stuff but in dark Presbyterian tones. The walls are cream with the odd saying painted on, including a bit of Burns. The beer was OK if a little tired, the punters a bit prime of Miss Jean Brodie if you get my drift. The decor a mix of wine bar and with a big 19th century map of the Royal Mile gracing one wall.
