I found the bar staff to be welcoming and the beer was nice. I will definitely return, as I'm based in the Mourningsnide area for the next few months.

Started drinking here in the Seventies when Drew and the Duchess ruled the roost, serving up the magnificent Belhaven treble of 60/-, 70/- and 80/-. Still feel nostalgic about those days when the idiosyncratic clientele included Pat, Catweazle, the guy with the sticks, the man from the Scotsman, the Dentist, etc., and the linoleum had more cracks than Tim Vine. The makeover may have smoothed out some of this grand old pub's eccentricities but it has been carried out so sympathetically that I don't feel the loss of the old place as acutely as I might have. Service is quick and friendly and there are always at least four real ales on tap.

I always visit this pub when in Edinburgh - nice pint of Scottish beer using the old-style Scottish fonts; fabulous tiling and windows etc. Maps on the table tops!! Just a nice heritage pub. Next door to the Kings Theatre and bus stops.

Refreshing alternative to anything else in Morningside with decent beer to boot. Nothing has changed in years; nothing wrong with that.

Nicely furnished bar, sparkly and with what seems to be thirties stained glass in the windows. Narrow, very crowded during my visit. It had Deuchars and Caledonian 80/- on pump. There was a private room at the back which was reserved for the night. At least it wasn't reserved individual tables. The football was on at first, two large flat screens at either end of the main bar.
