What a great address. My first pub along Edinburgh's famous Royal Mile was this unpretentious little gem at the corner of High and Canongate.
The tap selection included some Scottish cask ales. I chose a smooth and delicious Copper Cascade from Stewart Brewing company. Stewart is two-for-two with me, having also enjoyed their Edinburgh Gold ale.
The interior was crowded near the bar, but a small private room two steps up from the crowd offered candlelit ambience. Meghan couldn't help but remark how hard the pubs in Victoria try, and how large they are by comparison (e.g., the Bard & Banker).
