#117. Rose & Crown, 170 Rose St, Edinburgh

The last pub on Rose Street to be visited, I had avoided the Rose & Crown until now because most nights it features a karaoke-style cover band blasting out the Fleetwood Mac covers from this cramped corner in the window.

Here is Jimmy the bartender, working out the chords to a Soundgarden tune. Jimmy was very friendly and knowledgeable on such diverse topics as heavy metal, whiskey, and motorcycle maintenance.

Charming as it is, the Rose & Crown is somewhat lacking in the cask ale department, with Deuchars IPA being the only option.
