Sorry - I've just remembered that this was actually a John Barras pub - possibly a slight improvement on Greene King.

I think this place has recently re-opened. There's still no brewing on the premises and it now appears to be owned by an offshoot of Greene King. A modern-looking establishment in an inner city retail area, it's spread over 2 floors and clearly popular with diners after a chain bar/restaurant experience. Nevertheless, it does dispense real ales - Orkney Dark Island, Inveralmond Lia Fail & Greene King IPA. It was very busy. But there are plenty of tables. So there was still something to eat. The upstairs bar no longer offers service. Ok, but lacked a proper pub atmosphere.

Can't understand why they built a new pub with a micro-brewery on site and they don't brew !! The Inveralmond ales were fine though but the place although quite busy lacked something - it is not a pub but a bar/diner. There is a pool table and TV screens. Service was slow. I will return if they ever start brewing.

A pleasant pint of 80 Shilling, but the pub (if you can call it that) is rather soulless. Over-loud rock music, dull food, but that shouldn't put you off dropping in for a quick pint if you're heading out of Edinburgh.
