My colleagues & I frequent the Conan quite a bit, service is good at the bar and drinks more than reasonably priced although the food normally takes a wee while to come but is usually worth the wait and isn't expensive. You get what you pay for and it hardly advertises itself as tiger lily does it.....

I visited the pub in the afternoon with my wife. We had dinner there and some pints of Ale. Food & Drinks excellent, staff a bit slow and maybe inexperienced. However, I like Sherlock Holmes and of course loved the ambience.

Its not that good either! Alex and GJ give it 5 Stars yet cant be bothered to explain why, mmm, strange that. Seriously though this place is not 5 star. Its one of those dingy places that was better off filled with smoke! But the pints arent the worst, and the staff have always been ok. Wouldnt go out of my way to frequent here though.

This is bar far the best little pub in Edinburgh for lunch or a meal after all that shopping or even before the theatre as it is situated acros the road from it. The meals are very reasonably priced and are gorgeous. A bottle of wine to wash down your meal from a vast selection on the menu is as cheap as under a fiver for either red or white house wine and its lovely. The ambience is good and you can watch people bustling by. The decor is good and its a very warm and friendly place to go. Its our first point of call everytime we visit Edinburgh for lunch or for an evening meal before we hit George St and Rose Street. Definately gets our vote.

This bar can be smelt from the other side of york place, the kitchen looks like a dungeon from the outside, and the reek coming out smells like it too. The staff all get ridiculously drunk after their shift in a cleek in the corner and are loud and rowdy.Full of underage drinkers and neds,arrogant,po faced and totally inexperienced bar staff. The pint is flat too. This has to be edinburghs worst pub. I would rather drink in the penny black!!!

You are right about the smell-it's bowfing as you walk past-God knows what they use. And believe me it's even worse inside. The folk that voted for non-smoking would regret it if they had realised that there are worse smells than cigarettes.This place is one of them

You can smell this pub yards away. I think they have been using the same rancid fat for years. It smells inside too. Could do with a damned good clean and that includes some of the customers.

This really is one of the worst bars in Edinburgh. The beer selection is feeble unless you like watered down lager like Tennants! The decor is dirty looking and the bar staff like Robots without the charm. Then we get to the sub human scum who actually like to drink in this hell hole. They actually will make any normal healthy human being feel ill. If you want to see what Edinburgh scumbags actually look like - check this place out. If you want a good bar avoid at all costs. Recommended for Retards only.

Not a very pleasant pub and the staff don't try too hard. Had a handbag pinched 24/6/05 and none of the staff were at all interested so best avoided I would say.
