I used to like this pub a lot, as I said below, but I don't think I'll be going any more. I was disappointed to see that the hand pumps have been replaced. An observation to the barman (landlord, possibly?) just got a reply to the effect of "The staff aren't disappointed - ever tried to use one?" At least there are still Caley brews, but it's really not the same on tap. The place was fairly empty, so the four of us sat in a corner downstairs while the barman turned up the sport on TV so loud that we could barely talk over it. At least the toilets have been tidied up, but the paint job in the body of the pub is rather clinical. Why can't new landlords just leave well alone?

i visit edinburgh for 4 days of the week on business, recently just started staying in a hotel on morrison st. been to ossians every night last week for a late beer. staff very chatty, good beer (reasonable price) and new decor (still the smell of fresh paint), new toilets under construction but should look great when fininshed. its nice to see friendly faces, i'll be back, thanks to vesela.

Really dont like the place, had a great family run feel too it with previous owners, staff would always welcome you and have your drink ready. looks too clinical now and the staff really dont care.

What a waste

Cant believe the previous post regarding this gem of a pub. Most posts are positive about ossians as there really are no boozers like it. Cian is doing a great job

Carters Bar was crap and this really is no better, it just is too small. No special beers. Why it is rated the best bar in Edinburgh is beyond common sense!

Basically excellent - good and reasonably priced beer, great staff and atmosphere. Preferred it when it was Carter's, before the slightly obtrusive big TV screens and sometimes too noisy piped music arrived, but still a good place.

The worst thing I can say about this place is the open mic on Thursday nights, The X-factor has a lot to answer for. Other than that the pints are good, nice selection of cask ales and single malts and the staff are legend. well worth a visit. Seemed to do a free buffet on a Friday when I was last in and helped myself...maybe it wasn't free but nobody said anything

Great wee bar, friendly staff with a great jukebox. Good range of guest beers and has Bud on tap!!! Booked the upstairs for a private party and gave us a great buffet for 20. Only problem is the treck for the toilet

Taken to visiting this little gem of a pub recently. Beer is always good, fairly cheap and the staff couldn't do enough for you. The menu does the basics right and theres a good mix of people. Always good for a night out.

This is a great little pub with friendly staff and good beers (all well poured). Good for post Jambo/Scotland match drinking.

My friend had to present a poster for a conference, so we nipped in here for some Dutch courage. The barman was extremely helpful and cheered her up so much, we went back later for more drink and some food. Highly reccomended, though beer a little frothy for my southern tastes.

Great beer and great cosy feel to the pub formerly called Carter's Bar. Carter's never had the big screens and excessively loud piped music though... Avoid the live open mike slot on Thursday(?) nights.

Good Beer and resonable food in this much renamed establishment. Curious Mezzanine floor from which you could almost get your pint handed up to you if the bar staff were willing. Long trek to the toilets esp. if drunk very steep stairs. Personally I think the best pub that is near to haymarket station.
