Best pub in the world, great jukebox (especially No. 159), cracking banter, decent pint & positively charming Bar Staff. All in all - a delightful experience!

absolutely packed at the weekend and with a tiny bar it can be hard to get served never mind seated , but its a decent spot with a good jukebox blasting out diverse sounds , and the table footballs always nice to see .
Beer garden is good in the summer .

probably the coolest pub in edinburgh. the staff, especially the australian, are really hot. mmmeoww!!!!

and the polish girl is stunning. and can make great bloody mary's.

fooze ball is great fun too, until the big guy called keith comes along.

The most recent review rang a few bells.
My boyfriend and I were on our first trip to edinburgh and we stopped by the Star Bar. I was given a foul smelling pint of lager and when I returned it too the bar (because it tasted of malt vinegar) I was told "no refund or new pint" and "I shouldn't have payed for the pint it I thought it was off". I then asked for the manager only to be told it was him I was speaking too and if I wasn't happy to "stick my custom where the sun don't shine".
I ruined our whole weekend. NOT RECOMMENDED!

Had a very nasty encounter involving the bar manager and a cracked glass. Smug and arrogant can best describe him. If you're not local avoid the place at all costs, you won't be made to feel welcome. A disgraceful introduction to Edinburgh folk.

Have been in and out of this pub for about 30 years and I think it's a very friendly and welcoming pub. I like sitting in the beer garden and also the wee bit next to the bar. The back is a wee bit soulless but overall it's still what a pub should be.

The atmosphere at the Star Bar is excellent both during the day - lunch in the beer garden out back catches what little sun we get in Edinburgh, and both the service and food are great - and at night: live band Karaoke, quality drinks, an energising ambience. Brilliant!
