Great little venue for a private party in the basement room!
great venue for fringe, helpful staff, funny comedy shows
Wonderful atmosphere and always welcoming staff.
Chilled, homely, clam (well anytime I've been in), a well light ambience, and very quirky and artsy. Love the interiors and the pretty props, especially at Christmas time it was so nice. They make a good cocktail too, and there are enough nooks and seating options to suit, including comfy ones, helping you stay a while and have a good meet up. They also do good coffee if you don't want to drink. More...
great cocktails - especially the white chocohole martini ! thank you for a great party!
Had amazing cocktails recently. Laurie who served me and my friends was very keen on explaining everything even though the place was extremely busy. Great night, great cocktails. Highly recommend! More...
Fantastic place! Visited it recently and it was a cozy, beautiful and genuinely friendly spot to relax. Good beer selection and very friendly staff! Will be back the next time I'm in Edinburgh. More...
Good bar, delicious snacks. I recommend
It was the best pub we visited during the fringe. Really good atmosphere and a near perfect selection of beer and drinks. Also the guy behind the bar was a really cool.I hope that it will keep the style and everything else during their redesign. More...
Massive Props to the gang at Moriartys! �
Hired the basement bar for roughly 40 people and it was ideal!!
Heather was super helpful, despite making her take all the candles she'd just lit away! You can play your own music, decorate beforehand and they even tidied up following our sharp exit due to a fire alarm right before closing, so were worry free to go clubbing!
The nonchalant Mick, and Molly/Shannon were also lovely throughout the day!
Drinks are pretty standardly priced for Edinburgh, it's a great location but doesn't ever seem overly busy so the atmosphere in the upstairs bar is nice and chill! Thanks again � More...
I held my engagement party in their lovely downstairs bar. We had the whole room and bar to ourselves on a Friday night from 7.30pm til 1am. Free of charge! All we had to do was spend over £350 on the bar, which for a larger party like us was no problem. They provided us with a PA/Mic system for games and karaoke and had an AUX cable so you could plug in your own music. Very reasonable prices for drinks and those of us who ordered cocktails were very happy with the quality. I'd like to thank the staff once again for being so accommodating and for giving us one of the best nights possible in celebration of our engagement. Highly recommended for small scale parties!

We hired the downstairs bar for a hen party at the weekend! The staff were all friendly and really helpful. We were allowed to decorate how we wanted and had our own music as well. All the girls enjoyed the cocktail class as well. Would definitely recommend if looking for somewhere to hold a party! Thanks for a great afternoon! More...
THE STAFF ARE AMAZING!
The place is lovely and the drinks are great, but the guys who work here are the best! During the Fringe they made me and all the other performers feel very at home. They supported us and came to see our shows. Couldn't have asked for a nicer bunch to see everyday. More...
Nice bar helpful staff!
Small pub hosting free acts downstairs during the fringe.
This is a lovely wee bar which offers a cosy atmosphere and the most awesome but very reasonably priced cocktails. The staff are spot on too
Visiting for the fringe festival.As a venue it was OK.Only small downstairs but adequate and intimate.Plenty of room upstairs in the main bar and surprisingly places to sit with a good selection of beers.
Reasonably decent cocktails for a fiver, what more could you ask? Hard to tell what it's like normally as it was rammed due to the festival, but would go back.
Nice little pub/bar.
Small pub, good, welcoming staff
Nice place. Attended a private do in their downstairs bar . Quite small but just right if you want a quiet, cozy get together. Good variety of beers and staff were friendly and helpful. Didn't give it 5 stars purely because I imagine it's a bit crowded in the public bar due to the size. More...
Lovely friendly atmosphere, very cosy
Mr John InfiniteHive
Proper city pub, cosy, good drinks selection, nice staff.
Very pleasant staff
There is very good Guinness
Very interesting place
Nice place good staff
Great modern cosy bar
Had a few good drinks here on a couple of odd occasions; the place has never really screamed 'favourite bar ever' but and I've been reliably informed that they offer their premises to local rehearsals for Fringe shows - I think that gives them a good shout. It's a decent pub after all.
Bar staff very friendly
Great place to meet with friends and great staff.
Decent bar with an alright selection of beers.
Beer. Good drinks. Great bartenders.
Little bar with a good selection of drinks and very friendly staff. Whisky, gin and cocktails are great here. On busy nights it can be a bit cramped but honestly not an issue if you're picking this venue for what it is.
Great bar, friendly staff and poker downstairs in a Monday night!
Nice bar with a good selection of drinks and very friendly staff. You can usually always get a table despite it being quite a small pub! Always my go to place on Lothian road. More...
A little bit noisy, not enough drink choices. But great place
Amazing pub, great venue to hire
Good selection of beers
Great place for cocktail with a partner or with friends.
Love the beer. Function room is excellent.
Nice low key pub. Perfect for a couple quiet drinks with friends.
Amazing! Lovely place,great people!
Bit of a hash up with a reservation but staff were amazing. The owner turned up an hour later to apologise personally and put a couple of bottles on the table. Legends
Cosy and friendly staff
Nice quiet bar, friendly staff.
Really great pub. The atmosphere is great and the staff are really friendly. The drinks aren’t overly priced and the pub quiz is probably one of the best I’ve ever been to.
Great atmosphere and reasonably priced only problem is it's quite small
Good pub, decent music playing. Bit small but not terrible due to that.
great place, nice staff, decent beers
Very friendly staff. Highly recommend this place!!!!!
Nice bar friendly staff nice selection of drinks different from other bars and you can rent a room for party's too
Agradable para tomar algo con los amigos
Great bar, friendly barman & welcoming venue.
Schöner kleiner Pup
Great for drinks, nice vibe and let us choose the music. Only caveat was that it caught fire when we were there!
Nice place very well located for the city of shopping or being sociable, a little different from the others, a wee bit pricey perhaps...
Was there for a cocktail masterclass. Superb Heather was a great hostess and a great time was had by all. Would recommend highly
Good atmosphere and massive selection of drinks. Friendly staff
Nice place. Just went in for a quick pint but would definitely come back
Live music - Sunday
Cool little place with at least £5 of free Fringe comedy... planning to go back early for the 12pm show!
I was in here for a few of The Fringe shows and each time ended up staying for drinks!Great selection of cocktails and the staff are always friendly and helpful.10/10 would definitely visit again!
Excellent selection of spirits
I been here a few times and always satisfied with the selection of beers and whiskies.
Awesome collections and hospitality
Small quiet pub with good service.
Great drinks, great prices, great service!
While prices can be interesting, the drinks are great and the staff are the best. Nothing else to say!
Nice place for a beer!
Had a great time at gooses quiz
Good atmosphere. Friendly staff. Good selection of beers and spirits.
Me and my husband visited this pub by off chance while waiting at the bus stop outside. I was very pleasently suprised, the decor is lovely! The bar manager was great and he talked us through the cocktail list (which was fabby)and made us both great cocktails! We are now planning on going back in a few weekends for a few drinks. More...
Nice little place to stop for a drink. Quite cramped, however, and usually busy. Worth a wander into, and the staff are always friendly.

(updated)Had a bad experience here with one of the staff, but emailed the bar, and the owners were very quick to respond and apologetic - apparently it was a new employee who didn't know what they were doing.My original review was 1 star, but I'm updating it b/c of the positive attitude of the owners - other than my one bad experience, the atmosphere, other staff, etc., were great.
