The pub is a real gem. I dropped in with a small group of friends after a walk in the Pentlands one winter afternoon. The small and cosy public bar has a warm coal fire at one end with a couple of tiny inglenook seats, a collection of other comfy tables and chairs and a long bar. We were welcomed by a cheerful landlord who proudly told us about a variety of real cask conditioned ales from local craft breweries, along with a selection of more conventional drinks and a fine selection of whiskies and gins. Undecided which to try, he then offered us a taster ‘on the house’ to help us make our minds up before selling us several fine, well-looked after pints of super local ale.
Really great pub, great staff especially a guy called Ian and the manager. The best ale pub in the area
This is the place to have a beer after a bicycle ride!
An excellent pub. Go there, you’ll be made very welcome.
Great wee local pub with real ale and guest beer’s. Great restaurant open lunch and dinner. Friendly helpful staff and dog friendly.
My favourite local. And if your cycling to the Pentlands it’s on the way! Which I do a lot.
Went for a walk round Thriepmuir Reservoir then stopped in for a pint or two of real ale and some vino. Was made to feel very welcome and a Rio our dog made herself at home with the resident pub dog Sukki. Lovely way to spend lunchtime.
Great pub, very friendly and handy for walks in Pentlands.
Seriously the best real ale pub in Edinburgh and a fantastic restaurant along side! Couldn’t recommend a place more highly! The best!
