No real ale but I wasn't bothered as it was a rockers pub. Great unpretentious place with a cracking jukebox.

Small pub that sells a decent pint without attitude from the bar staff. Most of the time. Staff turnover is a problem.
Great selection of beers and ales and foreign bottle beers. It can get a bit busy at night but the service is still good.
If you are in Edinburgh and like Heavy metal or Rock this is the pub to visit.
For a city centre pub the prices are reasonable.

Just watch the steps when you leave.

Another long established edinburgh boozer , has a bit of character at least and seems to be a haunt for those who love hard rock ,goth types etc .

Good jukebox,pool table and selection of beers and a real "no messing" kind of attitude abounds . A few of the punters look a bit scary but ive never had or seen any bother .

You could do a lot worse.

The Black Bull is the oldest established rock bar in Edinburgh having been a dedicated music establishment for 20 years. They now sell Strongbow Cider on tap, and although Belhaven Best is still the only ale on tap, they now sell alongside Newcastle Brown Ale: Deuchars IPA, Twisted Thistle IPA, Innis & Gunn, Chimay, Erdinger as well as a couple of fruit beers for the more adventurous. This pub is known for having the best juke-box in Edinburgh and for good reason - it has an eclectic mix of rock, metal, punk & ska with none of the chart metal and not a lot for indie or emo kids either! Compared to other pubs in the area, prices are pretty good with promos being run on a monthly basis (bottled beers start from �1.99), COme here if you want a no-nonsense, pure rock bar with friendly staff and a pool table!
