Recently reopened after a refurbishment and looking good inside. The huge beer garden still its major draw. Incredibly annoyed to give such a newly opened bar with a really terrible selection of draft lagers. It's like a bar from 2002. Nothing craft, nothing local, nothing...More

Decent pub with a comfy interior and the best beer garden in Edinburgh. During the Edinburgh Festival there is a stage in the beer garden with live music and screenings of shows, films etc.

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for

for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
