We wanted a traditional folk music experience and that's what we got. Great combo of diverse folk lovers turning up to do their thing and wide selection of beers and ciders. Only visiting Edinburgh briefly so drifted over the Sandy's Bar where we found no...More
I was at your bar on friday night for a couple of beers. Really enjoyed talking to the swedish barkeeper. He was very nice and made me feel really welcome-although Sweden kicked Switzerland out in football😊. I most definetely be back!
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.

Hi. It's a 10 minute walk from the Royal Mile. Go along South Bridge and turn right into South College Street. There it is.
Sorry I took so long to reply. I didn't know about this facility till now. Have you visited yet?
