Just round the corner from the Café Royal is the Guildford - another architectural masterpiece. I could have spent hours staring at the marvellous ceiling. But instead my eyes were distracted by the equally good range of ales - Orkney IPA & Dark Island, Stewarts Pentland IPA, Natural Selection Bitter Descent, Fyne Jarl, Brewed Awakening Coffee Stout, Old Worthy A Worthy Cause, Allendale Wolf, Fallen Blackhouse Smoked Porter & Alechemy 10 Storey Malt Bomb. I went for the porter which was just to my satisfaction, not too smokey. The only downside was a lack of a real cider. The pub has a galleried area popular with tourists and diners, whilst there is clearly a regular local drinking clientele too. Without a doubt one of the best pubs in Edinburgh.

Visited August 2014 - lovely pub, great surroundings, friendly staff and 8 real ales on, all good quality. Definitely worth a visit.

Unfairly, the only time I seem to come in here is when you cannot move in the Cafe Royal next door. This is not a negative review, as this pub stands up on its own merits. Busy - but not as small as next door.

Still love them both.

Made a day trip to Edinburgh from Cheshire, 3 hour train journey, well worth it.
Visited 6 pubs in all, called in here before catching the train back, only a few minutes walk from Waverley - we planned it that way so we wouldn't have to rush, which is unusually sensible for a pub-crawl day out!!
Excellent pint of Brass Castle Hazelnut Mild - rich, smooth, the correct degree of sweetness for a mild, full of flavour, including vanilla - almost like chocolate ice cream in a glass.
Pub great, good surroundings, good staff, good ale.
Based on our day out, a characteristic of Edinburgh's real ale pubs seems to be knowledgeable, helpful and genuinely friendly staff. (As opposed to the over-rehearsed, soulless chumminess of some pubs I have visited in other towns and cities).
Looking forward to another trip to Edinburgh before too long.

If we hadn't been to a fair few other pubs during our weekend this would have been considered a great pub by all I'm sure. Lovely interior, friendly staff and good selection of beers. I think we were just "pubbed out" by the time we got here.
