We are a beer pub in the heart of Edinburgh specialising in German and Scottish beer. We have a brewery and distillery on site, so you can enjoy our very own beer and gin knowing it was made scant metres away! The pub is a welcoming environment decorated with hops, live plants and warm wood.
You can try all sorts of wonderful drinks, buy plants from our plant installation, and relax in our cosy swing seats, whisky barrel thrones and comfy armchairs in the knowledge that we love what we do and want you to have an experience worth remembering.

Ace! Cozy spot, friendly prompt service. Thanks. Lighting was a little bright when we arrived but not long after, and without mentioning it, they've dimmed to a perfect level. Boom! Professionalism. I'll be back.

As there was no food, I will leave a high rating in that spot to reflect the excellent drink selection - the beer choice was particularly great! My group was served by a young guy who was so friendly and accomodating, and went out of his way to give us good drink recommendations and answer questions. The ambiance is cozy, clean, and unpretentious, with lots of cute little plants and warm lights placed throughout. The beer was delicious and served to me in a chilled frosty glass - absolutely blew me away! Will definitely be coming back.
