We visited to try various scotches and were not disappointed. They have a HUGE selection and the prices are great too -- many drams around £3. The bartenders were also incredibly friendly and welcoming.

We always frequent this bar/restaurant when we are in Edinburgh because we have always found the staff very friendly and polite. It is a bar full of character with a central four sided bar. The décor is olde world which helps with the reason we keep returning. The meals are of exceptional quality and quantity.
It has an extensive whisky list at very reasonable prices.

...from this heritage pub. Beautiful Edwardian decor with the mahagony island bar the highlight, a fine range of Scottish real ales and malt whiskies and an appetising menu of good pub food all served with a smile by the cheerful and obliging staff.

6 of us showed up and had the haggis and turnips and the 'silly' thing is, it was the tastiest haggis and 'neeps we had while in Scotland (according to the two of us in the group).

Got extremely friendly service there too. Wanted to find time to go back but could not.
