On visit to Edinburgh, we ended up in this bar. I can not fault the place. The staff and customers were so freindly and helpful with directions and places to see. Im not planning to be back in Edinburgh for a while but should I be back I most certainly visit this little jewel.

I did not feel comfortable in this pub. It is narrow and was too full, standing room only. Some dodgy looking characters here, my (full) pint was stolen as soon my back was turned.

Used to be my local a few years ago when I was a student in Edinburgh. Went to the Maltings again recently when I was on a weekend break in Edinburgh. Wow. The place really has changed. It looks great now. Have a few minor complaints though. Used to like it before because you could go there if you were meeting friends for a chat. You can't really do that now with all the television screens everywhere including outside. You can't escape them. I think I counted 6 or 7 in total. Eventhough it's under new management now, it still serves great ale and the witty Australian barman (would be an asset to any pub) would draw you back there again/ One question though...What's the story with the pompous git who tries to pass himself off as the Liscencee? All he did when I was there was annoy the barman and the punters and fiddle with the tv's.

I've drank in the Maltings since big Steve and Sharon were the proprietors. I made many good friends and met my wife there but I was just wondering, have any of the previous reviewers been to school or taken an English course at all?

sorry just read reply to my complaint about cloudy beer and surly bar staff. I ordered a cask conditioned ale not a continental wheat beer. So either Im a liar and dont know beer and the bar maid was incompetent and didn't know the difference between types of beer or the so called guy that was standing beside me (?) is a liar - make you own mind up folks

Dont you think you should update your side rather than the bumf from guys n gals that aint commented on it?... Doesnt say much in your rateing to a bar to be fair does it. I think it was a shit hole but by gum its went well up mart and you guys aint even went and up dated a 3 yr old pic!!! says alot about your sight dont u think

This is a great bar. As for the review mentioning the cloudy beer.. Id just like to say I was present and the guy whom ordered it was obviously being an idiot as it was Kronenberg Blanc and the girl he has a go at was very polite and told him that it was a white beer ant therefore cloudy. Peolple whom place bad reviews and no idea how to order a pint in my mind need to get a life. I stand up for this good bar and give the staff and management top marks.

Looks to have been a nice bar in the past.It is seriously in need of compentent, non surly bar staff working instead of smoking at the end of the bar plus some proper ventilation would help - was the previous review written by the owners? Gay bars should promote themselves as gay bars.

I found the noisy atmosphere and cold, stale air somewhat unappealing. It is good for tramps!

The Maltings relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent range in ales make it well worth a visit. Known in Edinburgh as the owners of perhaps the best video jukebox in town, the Maltings caters for a wide veriety of punters, from students right through to students. (It is however not a student bar, but is certainly student friendly) The Maltings World Famous Quiz Night (Thiursdays) is a highlight, as are the 50p vodka shots (Mon, Tues, Wed) and the vodka slushes. Great wee pub.
