Having visited C.B. only a handful of times I am quite frankly dissapointed. I hear great things but as a member of the B.I.I. I can't see them doing much about improving service standards, clenliness, responsible drinking. When I asked for a alcohol free beer I was told they did not stock any so I went for a pint of diet coke. The second last time I was there I walked out as everyone was served before me. OK i was slightly under the influance but if they thought I was too drunk they should have said. The last time I was there it took equally as long to get served, the bar staff not knowing who was next. There were no sections of service ie Tom serves section 1 Dick serves section 2 Harry serves section 3 etc. the bar counter was so wet my very expensive jumper got soaked with slopps. My advice is if you want to associate with IT people who want to be seen and don't mind obismal service Candy bar is the place for you. I personally would go for somewhere like sygn.

As with all Montp. bars, Candy has well trained staff serving up great drinks and decent bar food. Great place to relax on a sunday afternoon

Think what the lady was saying is that 5 for a glass of wine is expencive if it the house wine. would be interesting to see what the price was after happy hour

I have to ask, where does the reviewer from the last installment normally drink managing to get a glass of wine for 2.50 these days, the miners club?!?!?!

I work in this industry, and Candy Bar is 1 of the best places to visit in the Burg. It has great cocktails, with staff who know what they're talking about, plus the atmosphere is enough to keep anyone happy. Now i realise this isn't a plus for the ladies, but boys, if you want to see some lovely lady lumps, then the boys and girls at Candy definately attract a fine female or 2.....

I would suggest getting there early on a Fri or Sat night, and take full advantage of the 2 for 1...

The Candy Bar is a cracking venue who looked after our group of 25 superbly.

Wide selection of drinks, reasonably priced food and the bar staff and waitresses were great fun. The locals who go there were also up for some banter too - a great pub which you should visit if you're in Edinburgh.

They operate a buy one get one free policy, however at nearly 5 quid a glass of wine it seems more "pay for two glasses and get two glasses" there was no option to just buy one for 2.50, so the government's advice that happy hours should be abolished is unheeded here. The music is so damn loud that there is no possibility to chat, in fact you'll be lucky if the uninterested bar staff can hear you order.

you cannot beat the weekend breakfast for value for money. less than £6 for a huge delicious plateful as well as coffee, orange juice plus a tiger beer. Friendly service too.

£3.25 for a pint of Belhaven Best is taking the piss. Nice enough bar but won't be visiting again.
