Holy crap, a pub in Edinburgh that sells Addlestone's cider! Go there and try some NOW!

Good ambience, no blaring music, and just quite a nice pub in general. Plus they do the best burgers EVER!

This is one of the great edinburgh pubs - it has it all, character, cheap beer, friendly staff, and good entertainment. The food was excellent, a member of the staff told me they had poached the chef from the Caledonian Hotel. well worth the visit

Great pub if youre barstaff or a regular , they seem to have their own private party - although to be fair i got served promptly . Beer wasnt great quality though

there are also some very strange characters in this pub who are best kept well away from

The best pub i've been in for a while, staff were great and service was swift despite the fact that the barmaids were clearly locked in monotonous conversation with regulars--poor them!! it was a good night though, fab band the offenders definitely a must see, really nice to see a friendly pub in the centre of town, not a place you often come across. the people who have left bad reviews clearly have never worked in a pub.

Had some food there few days ago with some friends. It was way above standard for a pub! But the staff were fairly awful - a red head stood and twirled her hair while the empty glasses piled up on tables! Some cutie talked away to regulars and ignored other people....like my friend! Would go back for food, but I think I'd have to point out how to serve drinks. Music was good!

Was here on a works night out, bar staff were a great laugh, cheep booze, cheep food...altogether a great laugh. Definatly give it a go. These bad reviews will be of the people who go, ask for a beer, get it and hide in the cornor. Boring people.

Very friendly(and attractive!) staff in here.
Made to feel welcome every time i go in by the regulars, fills up with students at night. haven't eaten in here but the food looks great as it comes out.
All in all a fine ' boozer '
Quite some place, i recommend it!

Been to this pub quite a few times(Only because my wife works nearby)The drink is expensive, and food expensive(if you can find it behind your lettuce)If it wasnt because of my wife I wouldnt go there at all.The staff make sure the regulars are ok, and if they can fit you in, you will eventually get served.I dont know why this place is so expensive for a pokey side street bar a mile away from the town? So if you want cheap food and cheap drink, dont go to The Southsider bar.

What an amazing night, cheap drinks and great atmosphere, good looking staff who certainly know how to entertain! The music was brilliant and the place was packed. I stole a girls guinness hat, i'm sorry! Its the best pub i've been in for a while definitely worth a visit!!

What a fantastic little place. The drinks are a bit pricey, but the great atmosphere makes it worth it. There was a guy called Dave playing who was a great laugh, and the 3 staff that were on all spoke to me at one point, as did a very colourful regular (though I'm not sure what he was saying!) Would go back in a second.

This pub was absolutely unbelievable. Yes, there was a good band and the evening started out OK. However as the male bar staff got increasing stocious and belligerant, and after a brick came flying through the window and after I had just bought a round of drinks - the most drunk of the bar staff physically wrenched my drink out of my hand and subsequently soaked me with gin, which was not the method I had in mind for embibing my beverage. Having thown me out onto the street, I then peer through the broken window to see the young female staff tidying up the broken glass etc. whilst the male members of staff sat and drank guiness! I am not a snob, and I don't mind the old spit and sawdust but this was like some 1850's frontier experience, where was the sherriff? DOn't go to this stupid pub, its shite.

Always good for a laugh this pub. Good entertainment from both live sport, pool, table football, quiz and the antics of a few of the regulars when drunk. Excellent choice of ale; decent food. Stand by the bar and it's a certainty you'll soon be stuck in conversation with a local, for hours.
