Modest terrace pub that I walked past first time of asking. Inside is a small L shaped front bar with bare boards and black banquettes and an impressive wooden servery (the grandeur of which was somewhat undermined by the retention of a COVID-inspired Perspex screen). The star is the rear room which has bare stone walls, breweriana and a bit of atmosphere. Two cask on which exactly mirrored the customer count on a grey Tuesday afternoon; Stewarts Edinburgh Gold and Kelburn Gold Hops (NBSS 2.5, turnover lacking). Could imagine it's a buzz here when busy. But on my Tuesday afternoon visit it wasn't and felt like a fairly functional bar, despite its CAMRA Inventory (Regional) listing.

Very interesting little pub on one of Leiths main thoroughfares. It's doesn't even look like a pub from the outside, but it's reputed to be the oldest pub in Leith. You enter into a small room with a tiny snug to the left, along a short corridor there's another stone walled room which is filled with good looking seating and is also used for live bands. The snug now has one tiny table with a chess board imprinted on its surface. In the past it was reputedly used by prostitutes to entertain sailors from the local docks. The front room is flag floored with bench seating around the walls. Two handpumps on the bar both serving beers from Barneys which is brewed just up the road in Summerhall. Friendly bar staff add to the atmosphere. A must visit when in Leith along with the Malt & Hops & Teuchtars Landing.
