Colin Walker left this review about Thomson's Bar

Thompson’s sits 5 minutes’ walk from Haymarket train station. This single roomed bar has the style of Glasgow architect Alexander 'Greek' Thomson, with the gantry and room panelling which are inlaid with scenes from Greek mythology. The beers on sale have a good choice from McEwan’s 80/-, Harviestoun Schiehallion, Guinness, Guinness Extra Cold, Fyne Ales Jarl, Tryst Brewery XL5, Holy Grail, Deuchars IPA, Oakham Ales Citra, Magners Cider, Tennent’s, Estrella to Belhaven Best. There is up to 4 changing ales. Although the interior is not what one would call a true Heritage pub, but is one to watch out for the future.

Gorgeous interior and superb Deuchars IPA.

Really worth seeking out for the wood paneling, mirrored walls and tiling.

This is a square single roomed bar with a tiled floor an ornate ceiling and some carved wooden features. It was quiet on my late Wednesday evening visit.
There were four hand pumps which had three English beers and just one Scottish although the boring Deuchar's IPA was also advertised. The four beers were Fyne Jarl, Mordue US Pale, Oakham Citra and Swannay Island Hopping. I went for the Jarl (£3.60) and US Pale (£3.90) which were both in excellent condition.
I thought the beer choice and the pub were dull and rather expensive so I doubt that I would return.
