I love this place, the mosaic was created in 1889, but the pub started around 20 years earlier. Nice rums, whiskeys and beers also ciders. Just pop in and relax. Well appreciated. Thumbs up

I came to this pub two years ago after my friend, who was living in Edinburgh, recommended it. We popped in for a pint, or four and had an absolute blast, really good selection of beers and whiskeys and a lively feel as it was packed. I have returned on my own and I've found the venue very much the same as it was, even with the passage of time. Its got a nice vibe to it, music not too loud to allow talking amongst friends. The Beer and whiskey selection is still outstanding, with almost a dozen ales available and friendly bar staff.

A great wee pub kind of hidden from the main drag but certainly one worth visiting. Tuesday afternoon just popped in for a pint and stayed for a few. Barmaid was lovely and made time for some chat. It gave off the feeling that it was just a really nice pub. Had a good selection of beers which the host was very informed about.
