I love the period decor of this bar but I don't go there anymore because the bar staff was very unpleasant and quite arrogant on two occasions when I visited. A real shame.

I have been there endless times and is a lovely, old unpretentious local pub. Good prices. Good selection of whiskies. Cocktails. No noisy screens with sports. Meet the locals !

Nice atmosphere and friendly bar staff, still retains the character of a traditional bar with the added bonus of decent real ale. Worth a trip down to Leith Walk.
