I love this pub. The locals make it what it is. Maybe you had a bad experience? Join in with the locals some time.
Great pub.

I'm not a regular,do enjoy the odd pint but i wish some of those locals would respect the fact that they dont bloody own the bar. Have some respect.
Good staff.

this pubs gone downhill a slight since the loss of its old school staff, the ones that are left are very much appreciated though! good banter. i miss that homely welcoming vibe, things seem far more up-tight here and most of the staff arent up for the bar banter as much as the old. good for a romantic meal once-a-week stop offs, but the dulling atmosphere has made it less of a locals boozer for me. unfortunately

there are many staff leaving or have left this lovely pub. some of them haven't left yet but i'd like to say a special goodbye to Angus Sarah and Rachel. their good banter and hardwork has left me returning to this pub more often as i sail through stockbridge. i hope they shall return

After living in Stockbridge for years, I have finally ventured down to into this basement bar. I must say I donít know what the problem is with all these negative reviews. I've been quite a few times now and have had nothing but excellent service and great chat. I think anyone who complains about this pub must be an elitist or at the very least, someone venturing too far from the standardised surrounds of their private clubs to fully appreciate a pub with true character and atmosphere. Somewhere that represents a gathering place for everyone, not somewhere that can price the everyman out to create a society of those who believe themselves to be better.

To the last reviewer...Having been a long time drinker in the Bailie I can let you know a few things; The manager is Scottish as are at least five of the bar staff. The rest come from the likes of Australia, Ireland and Poland. There's one "Englishman" in the whole place and even he claims his mother is Scottish...

I recently moved to Stockbridge and obviously I checked out a few of the local hostelries (and viewed comments on this site) before I made a decision as to where my 'local' might be. I have to say that after reading a few of the negative comments on this pub I thought it wouldnt be the place for me. I have now been into the bar around a dozen times so I have probably met or been served by all of the available staff and I must say that on the whole the friendly attitude i've been shown so far has been pretty impressive. The locals seem to be up for a good laugh and the staff, whilst doing their jobs properly, also seem happy to join in the banter. I read somewhere on this thread that the bar staff should support their local team. I was in the Bailie tonight and I noticed that on the sports board it said the CIS cup was between super killie (or something like that) and Hibs. I spoke to the manager Angus and it turns out he is a killie fan. I support Hibs but if he is a killie fan then he is supporting his local team, a moot point I grant you but the other locals who threw in their tuppence worth all thought his sign was highly amusing especialy because some wag had put the score in as killie 0 Hibs 4. I enjoyed the ensuing banter and the manager was taking it all with good grace and good humour. The point is I have decided that if this is the level of entertainment I can expect from my local then this is the pub for me. Keep up the good work chaps and chapesses I will certainly be back.

i had to leave the other night cause i could no longer stand to listen to a certain member of "management" having a go at the girls. these barmaids work night and day for a lower wage and have to put up with DISGRACEFUL attitude like that? im surprise they havent yet quit. wont be going here again. shame.

go in and sit at the bar. you'll be entertained for hours by the fun chat between the staff and locals. sarah nicole and a recent girl i have yet to name always put a smile on my face. im also glad to see this isn't just show-face, after the girls are done a lot them join the gents at the bar for yet more chat. one of the few proper pubs left

I was there the other day for lunch and the girls were so busy yet smiley and helpful despite being rushed of thier wee feet. The food was delicious and came quickly considering how many people were in. I'll definately be back now I've found a friendly, down to earth, old fashioned boozer on my doorstep.

though ive lived in stockbridge for nearly a year ive never been in the bailie before, but went in the thursday night just passed for a couple of drinks and must say i was quite surprised. the mood of the pub is very laid back and cosy, even when things get busy. most of the staff are very friendly and chatty, especially the one young blonde lass who, in between helping with food, tidying, and serving drinks, still had time for banter with the locals and myself. i was very impressed. the only thing i'd say i was disappointed in is the snob clientele it attracts, who find it hard to believe the coffee machines get turned off at 9 and scoff when told they don't do cocktails. its a pub!

Visited The Bar last night; I ws a regular for about 5 years before miving away and I'm afarid alot of the negative comments on here were spot on; bored and unhelpful staff, dirty glasses piled high and I was charged £6.85 for a pint of Guinness which was mainly froth and a pint of Tenants lager; I did query this to the barmaid to be met with a blank stare and a flick of bleached hair before she waltzed off. Of course there was no manager available

Save you pennies and go to The Antiquary or Watershed instead!

Popped into the pub a few weeks ago. Food was good (but I had mussels)the wine was lovely and I had no problems with the Staff as mentioned in other reviews.
If you fancy a Rose Street Pub with a little more va va voom then head here. Best for winter lunches. Very cosy but not much room to move around.

Find some of the reviews about the Bailie very strange indeed. I have been living in stockbridge for 5 years and have found the Bailie both warm and friendly with excellent service. There always appears to be great banter with the regulars and staff which you can often become emersed in. The choice of ales is sufficient and the food is fantastic. I would recommend the Bailie to anyone.

I was in the Bailie last night with my wife and 2 friends. I stood at the bar, cash in hand for almost 10 minutes while the staff served people who had arrived well after me. Eventually one came to me and asked if I was next. When I complained about being ignored by the staff, she turned around to serve someone else. On complaining to the manager, who was standing at the bar drinking I was told that I should stop compliaing or I would be barred. I should point out that I am tee-total and thus was not drunk and entirely reasonable in my complaint. Another memeber of bar staff came across and told me they were too busy to waste time on my complaint. I did not realsie that bar staff were allowed to be rude to customers when it was busy. It was not so busy that the bar manager actually felt like putting down his drink and working. Otherwise the pub seemed to have a nice atmosphere and good crowd. It was however, very smoky.

As someone who has patronised this bar for 20 years it pains me to see this bar has puzzlingly sunk yet further due to abysmal staff service and attitude. I love (not) the fact that the bar clock is at least 5 minutes fast and even well within licensing hours (they have a licence to 1am on a Friday) at 1.05am the manager charmingly addresses one with the statement " finnish yer drinks and get out". I must find out what charm school he has been to.

This used to be such a great bar but is going downhill fast. My most frequent time for visiting is Friday afternoon and there is one problem - the staff. The food is still good but there just seems to be no way to catch the staff's attention and the past few visits have been very disappointing for that reason. Today I asked the manager whether I should order at the bar and was told to order at the table but no-one showed up and he obviously did not pursue this with the waiting staff. This sort of thing is costing them customers and money I guess. I complained about the problem to the manager but it just seemed like water off a duck's back. I would love to be able to contact the owners/brewery to make a formal complaint. feel free to email me (hamrun@gmail.com) if you know who that might be.

Another bad night this pub - this pub has great potential if it had well trained hospitable staff - it is staffed by people who are jobsworths who care so little about the customers and have little training. A loyal customer base keeps this pub ticking over but that is not enough given that the loyalty is not rewarded by bad sloppy service and off hand manner. It is very sad that such a good pub can be treated so badly by inferior management and staff. It pains me to say this but try and give othr establishments your business.

Great pub, fantastic pub, potloads of atmosphere, but let down by being unbelievably smokey (it's in a semi-basement location and the huge 'extractor' fans simply eddy the smoke about rather than do anything to actually extract it) and having utterly bog standard, and so consquently overpriced, food. Gastro pub this ain't, but it's a great local with real mix of people.

The bar is very speical and survives despite its management and owners. Its design (cicular bar) and location - where New Town and Stockbridge meet - guarantees a lively mix of people - lawyers, joiners, designers, hairdressers, property developmers - straight, gay, bi ! - students - weel to do folk - senior citizens all mix freely and that is the pubs joy. The staff on the other hand add little to the equation and usually are badly trained and off hand. A manager with personality would work wonders - customer care should be placed higher on the list of priorities. Also the pub can get very smokey and the staff do little to relive the fug. Otherwise a great pub

This has to be one of the best Pubs Edinburgh has to offer. It looks great lots of Red and Black and wood, pleanty seating, TV's for the football. What makes the Bailie FANTASTIC is the range of Beers and the food (both fantastic). Its a popular Bar and a great place to be seen.
