Stopped in there for a few drinks before heading back to our hotel. Found the staff lovely, wine was good and they were very helpful in selecting wines and advising on local beers. Nice atmosphere

Great little bar, it's not a pub, but has a fair range a beers which are all kept well. Large selection of whisky, unfortunately nothing local - shame. We passed Carters early evening and it was full of people having finished work for the day,...More

Great range of real ales, and whiskey! Limited but good quality wines available by the glass. As a new venue food is yet to be explored by the owner. Warm comfortable and very friendly staff!!

Recently refurbished and rebranded as "Carter's Tap", this cozy, traditional pub is 5 minutes walk from Haymarket and sits on the main road between there and Lothian Rd. Although quite a small bar, there's an additional mezzanine level for a bit of privacy and also...More

Average hipster type bar... drinks are decent but staff seem to be more concerned with each other than with customers. Not a smile to be seen for us, but leaping about behind the bar dancing with each other between serving customers. Put some of that...More

A small bar quite near to Haymarket train station. I have been a few times, generally mid-week and early evening. There is a seating area at ground level with further tables at mezzanine level. It's a classic wooden floors, rustic furniture pub. 5 real ales...More

Quirky little boozer. Good for a swift pint. Strange clientele though who seem to be hammered whatever time you go.

Small bar along the road from Edinburgh Haymarket railway station. Popped in for a couple of pints one evening. Can't fault, good beer, nice atmosphere. Recommended.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
