Group of around 14 met up for a reunion in this very pleasant pup just across the road from Waverley Station and up a narrow set of stairs. Good selection of drinks making our afternoon very enjoyable

Visited this place recently and can safely say it’s one of the worst pubs I’ve ever been in. The place is filthy, flies everywhere and you don’t want to visit the toilets. The beer was so bad due to the pipes not being clean. When...More

My wife and I were exploring and we took a short cut and found this bar. The bar maid was nice, but what made my day was a couple of regulars. (George and Peete). We visited multiple times and was treated like old friends

We stopped here while walking up the steps to the Royal Mile. The young barmaid with long black hair treated us very poorly. She wad rude, argumentative, and made us feel very unwelcome. While we finished or drinks, we heard her argue with other patrons...More

My wife and I stopped off while dandering around Edinburgh ... Just for a quick couple of pints .... A quaint old establishment with one of my all time fave footballers referenced on the wall ..... Give it a go. 👍🏽

Visited on a Saturday evening for drinks. Basic pub but plenty of atmosphere and a wide range of drinks on offer at reasonable prices. Good music playing without being too loud. Enjoyable place to visit.

Another tiny pub on the stairs up Fleshmarket Close. Reasonable prices, good service. Even managed to get a seat despite it being close to Christmas. Didn't manage to find out how it got its name - more research required!

It's been many years since I visited this wee pub in Fleshmarket Close, and it has hardly changes in all these years. Still friendly, still inexpensive and is still a nice Edinburgh pub. So, if you are looking for somewhere of the tourist trail in...More

Old Town
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
