About the Pub
  This corner bar is always busy on 'match day'. It is a very popular stop off pub on route to either of Edinburgh's football grounds. An old traditional style circular bar is the central attraction and a large selection of guest ales can be changed on a daily basis. The food served consists of mainly pies and sandwiches which always go down well with 'footy' fans on a cold day. The landlord and lady are very welcoming and with the dark wood decor this is a cosy place to spend a couple of hours.

Good beer
The beer here is generally pretty good. Normally excellent IPA on tap, The laundrette next door is definitely not there any more !!

Went in for a quick pint while our table at the restaurant over the road was being sorted. The miserable portly barman wouldn't serve my 21 year old son so we had to leave, that's was after me telling my son how good a pub it was! Will never darken its door again - un believable.

Good beer
Beer is generally first class. Some info here is out of date (there's no longer a laundrette next door!). Not a patch on its Southside outlet though (same name), mostly as the Southside staff are more welcoming. Needs to improve its attitude to customers in Broughton, but otherwise a fine drinking pub.

The best IPA on the tap, in whole of Edinburgh, bar none. Only minus point is that if u have a friend who happen to be tired and wants 40 winks, expect to be thrown out and have a blast for nothing!. Otherwise than that, C&B is the place to be for a good pint of real ale!.

The 'Willis' clan.
A 'real' pub
We travelled up from the South just to taste the 'Flowers' but alas it wasn't there. Lucky for us then that the landlord and bar staff were on hand to guide us through the other ten that are! Samples for those we wished to try before we buy. Make no mistake this is a real pub. Only one drink on this visit but we will be back to try the rest. Many thanks for your hospitality.

Edinburgh's finest
Don't know what all this nonsense about a dour Landlord is all about?! Mitch is a top bloke (despite being a Hibby!!) and all his staff a very friendly. The Deuchars IPA is the best you'll taste anywhere and the pub grub is good value and unpretentious. A trip to Edinburgh is not complete without a visit. Go there now!

proper pub
a proper non-plastic pub, with a mixed clientele who enjoy chat and beer, hard working friendly staff make up for the landlords dour and dismal disposition

The landlord(? big guy, I assume he's the landlord) needs to try being friendly to his paying customers!

Unfriendly, unwelcoming
A traditional pub with fine ales, let down by the extremely unfriendly landlord. A real shame as otherwise it could be a good venue for a pint or two.

Poor service
A very narrow-minded pub where everyone stops and stares when you enter. Be careful if you are don't fit in to their world view.

A great Pub!
This is the finest pub in Edinburgh - with the possible exception of the Windsor Buffet. The beer is unrivalled in the city - great for viewing sport. Mitch & Mike are a great duo who know their beer - it's the tops!
