As you will know Catriona many of Edinburghs pubs change their name and style quicker than they change their barrels !

Some of my faves however are down Gorgie way ( I will leave it for you to work out why! ) including The Tynecastle Arms, Balmoral, Caley Sample Rooms.

Anyone visiting the borders should try out the Traquair Hotel in Innerleithen (near Peebles)......damn fine food and beer!!

I will post some more faves of mine in the near future......

I'm more your Ensign Ewart, Greyfriar's Tavern sorta wumman!

I admit I do only venture into the Gorgie bars on match days.

As I stay on the outskirts of town I dont get to see as much of the town pubs as much as I used to.

Went into the Ensign a few times years ago (mid 90's), nice and "homely" if I remember correctly and also have fond memories of Gladstones/The Royal Mile Bar (is it still called that?) opposite the Scandic hotel.

One pub I like the look of when driving past occasionally is The Canons Gait (down from the Worlds End) Any Idea what its like?

Re the Canon's Gait..... it's nice - they have good music nights - all sorts and lots of folky stuff.... but stay away from howfs like the White Horse Tavern - on the Canongate, just past St Mary's Street cool.gif

Sandy Bell's is also a good pub, ditto Black Bull in the Grassmarket. Greyfriar's Tavern, too..... hmmmm I may be giving a really bad impression here tongue.gif

What a great service this is! Very kind and thoughtful to all those weary travelers wink.gif

I know I just tried to find the little "whole in the wall" type place. The pub off the beaten path. It was a very good time... wish I would have payed more attention to names... but as Iain(sp) said names change a lot.... so it may not have made a difference....
Since I usually can find my way back to most places I happen upon, I am sure I will be able to find m'way. Maybe stumble my way......

That is one thing I noticed... Taxi service in the UK is FAR better than in the US. I never had trouble getting a taxi anywhere.... London, Glasgow, Dublin, Cardiff, it was very nice.....made my life much less complicated....

Yes, our licensed cabs (the black ones - which aren't only black anymore, but that's another story!) are great. Especially, if you are in a town you don't know very well - the cabbies are great at finding ANYWHERE you need to go!

Glad you are finding this thread interesting, Jason.... I am coming to the conclusion that very few members have imminent UK holiday plans!
