been drinking there for more than 10 years and yes, it did have its heart and soul ripped out and yes, the decor is still taking me time to get used to but the guys who have it now are doing a great job. live bands, reasonable prices and snacks, its all good. and the jukebox isnt all boring hard rock, i like soul music and they have plenty of that on the go!

I went to this bar 3 years ago, was taken by a friend and it was awful, it was dark and damp, nothing was in order and it was very dirty, I never went back, although it so happened I ended up in there at the weekend, what an amazing change, I don't think it had the heart and soul ripped out, just the dirt and muck, very calm atmosphere and good service from the bar staff. I would highly recommend it to anyone passing that area.

Friend took me to this bar for a drink and we waited 15 minutes to be served while people kept walking up to the bar and getting served before us. Barmaid was really rude and wasn't impressed with the service. Suffice to say won't be going back.

This used to be one of the best pubs in edinburgh but has sadly had the heart and soul ripped out of it. Now its another non descript boring irrelevance. every time i pass now its empty, that says it all.

This used to be a hard rock/bikers boozer ,ideal for a jar before a gig at the queens hall with a good atmosphere. now refurbed with annoying studenty types behind the bar specialising in serving annoying studenty types on the other side of the bar .

Have to say, I dont like it anymore. Used to be one of my favourite pubs back in 2004/05, then it got renovated, and it sucks. Trendy expensive wine bar now. We had enough of these in edinburgh already... WHY!?

Always try to get in for a few beers when back in Sconnie Botland.
You don't know how good somethings are 'till they're gone,hope this pub goes on forever.

This pub seems to have changed hands more often than a Leith docks "street worker", but has remained much the same throughout. Great pub if you're into hard rock and metal, since that's mainly what's in the jukebox. Big enough to accomodate locals, students and biker types without any agro. Bar gets very busy on Fri/Sat night, but if you get there early enough to claim a table you're sorted. Prices not bad. Can get a bit smokey.
