user reviews of Cask and Barrel Southside, Edinburgh

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

I visit Edinburgh once or twice a month and always make a point of visiting this pub.

There's always eight cask ales on, three regular and five guests, which are rotated very regularly. There's also a good whisky selection which includes their "malt of the month" at, what I think is, a discounted price. The staff are very knowledgable and know their beer.

This is a proper real ale enthusiasts pub. Edinburgh has many of them these days but none are better than this.

This is the former Junction Bar, and is in the same ownership as the Cask and Barrel in Broughton Street. It has been open less than three years, yet has twice (I think) been CAMRA Edinburgh pub of the year.

Three regular ales and five rotating guests from all over the UK. There is also an impressive collection of malt whiskies, with two on special offer at any time.

There are at least five television sets but they are seldom all switched on, they are positioned so as not to be too intrusive and the sound is hardly ever on - exceptions being evenings when three different Euro football matches are on.

Staff are knowledgeable and professional (expect to be asked for ID if you're anything under 30).

By far the best pub in the area.
