Absolutely loved this place! Great beer, atmosphere, music and a wonderful open mic night. The only bar we visited twice during our stay in Edinburgh. Bus stops right in front of the door 👌

Didn’t feel I should pay £4 entry for a bar, music wasn’t great last night and there was rubbish on the floor. Toilet lock was broken in female toilet aswell.

Good live music. Band that played covered a good variety from classic rock to modern. Bar was medium sized and had limited seating but we made it worked. Had s good dance area

When you´re walking near the place, you can´t imagine what you´ll get dawn there, a big, nice and warm like familiar, place, where the live music sounds hard and the handcraft beer is sharing with friendly people!!
