I use to eat here nearly every lunchtime as am based in the offices up the road. After being closed for a couple of days we returned to a bar of drunks who put us off our meal. I notice it's not open till late afternoon now, I wonder why!

I've visited this pub a few times as I'm a regular to the grassmarket it was not very appealing before, but it has been spurced up, well given a good clean. Last week there was an open mic night and the place was buzzing there was a variety of punters in. The beers are your usual for a pub like this no speciality beers have'nt tried the food yet. Staff are friendly.

Great pub, prices have just gone up for us non-students however only up to as much as the other pubs in the Grassmarket. In the snap fax with a great deal, buy a pint get a free nip. Need to get one of those I think. The big (I mean really big) screen is great for football however the only bad point about the pub is Rab. Met him pretty much every time i went there. Dont know who Kevin and Craig are but he gets pretty excited about talking about them, one hint you will hear him before you see him and if you hear him get a brolly or cover your pint... Nice pub, great staff (don't challenge the manager to an arm wrestle, he aint the lightest) sure beats the other pubs in the area.

This place has been called a variety of names over the past few years. Suprisingly now the Grassmarket Bar. I say suprisingly as it is situated on the West Port. It provides excellent drink value and a great alternative if the Grassmarket bars are packed to bursting point. However, the one fault with the bar [and it is a big one] is the archaic ventilation system. On a busy weekend night, it smells like a toilet cubicle situated under a giant sweaty armpit. You do aclimatise pretty fast, but it is rather unpleasant at first sniff. Much better to visit in the afternoon, when still fresh from the cleaners hard work.

Lovely pub, friendly staff and refurbished to a very high standard. The food's a teeny bit pricier than some of the other pubs nearby but the quality can't be faulted. Those of us who work nearby also get a 20% discount which is very handy for liquid lunches - a must for depressed civil servants! Jukebox is a bit dubious but there are some great tracks from the Pistols, Damned, Buzzcocks, Undertones etc. Think I'll be heading along at the end of today ;-)

Lovely freindly pub, 20% student discount on all food and drinks 7 days a week. Large projector and large plasma showing all live sport. The pub has a great selection of music on the video jukebox and if you ask the staff nicely (as i've found) they will give you free credits... what more do you want, cheap drinks + food, live sport and great music in a freindly pub!!
