#348. The Rowantree, 8-12 Niddry St, Edinburgh
Part of the Caves, this pub that you enter off Cowgate (hence the cow, I suppose) feels subterranean. In fact, there are stalactites dripping from the walls and ceiling! The lighting perfectly compliments the surroundings, and leaves one feeling warmly embraced. The beer selection could have been better - I had a bottle of Innis & Gunn as none of the taps impressed - but for a quiet, intimate place to enjoy the company of some friends over a drink, the Rowantree is hard to beat.
