Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Wow. Place is full of old public schoolboys. Too expensive. Better to visit Wetherspoons ot Toby Carvery for value for money

Thanks to Ian and the staff for the fabulous hospitality. The great range of whiskies and first class ales were supplied to the 13 Welsh singers on the international weekend. The locals were amazing and they honestly make you feel at home. We also went...to hear a local singer, Nikki and that was a great evening. There is no doubt we will return.More

If you fancy meeting up with some public school boys this is the place for you. Eton lite . Watch Madness video Bullingdon Boys and it will give you a flavour of what to expect.

This is a small pub but the staff are friendly and it has a nice atmosphere inside. Prior to COVID the themed nights were great fun too.

Winstons continues to be a great local, with great staff providing a safe enjoyable place to have a beer, or two! The bar staff make Winstons the best pub in Corstorphine. Thanks Ian and Lynn for giving us a place to go and recharge our...batteries, and have a little bit of normality, whilst maintaining the highest standards of adherence to COVID safety measures. Make sure you book in advance.More

I'm only just getting back out and about. Winston was one of the first post lockdown pints. It's almost impossible to not fixate on the Covid precautions. On entry you are met by a member of staff wearing a visor. All staff in masks or...visors. Plenty hand sanitizer and tables are spaced out. No standing at the bar and it's table service only. It operates 1 metre distancing. Only 1 real ale on, but it was Pentland ale in excellent condition. Obviously they don't have the footfall yet to get through more. It's probably best to book. I turned up on spec. Twice I got in and had a table, twice I was turned away due to them being full. It's tough times for pubs. I'm going to support them as much as I can, but clearly revenue won't match what it was. I hope they survive.More

Visited in November for some Haggis pie and it was honestly the best pie I've ever had. So good that we came back for the Christmas pie. Really good friendly service. Will definitely be back! Thank you.

Just fancied popping out for lunch and visited Winston's nearby. Never thought of going to this pub before, but I'm glad we gave it a shot. We both had the steak pie, which was just great. Lovely pastry and lost of meat, served with extra...gravy on the side, and fab chips too. Very affordable as well. Great service too, so five stars from me!More
