A must for Edinburgh
Jul 2021 • Couples
Visited the Bow Bar with my girlfriend during a promotional Whisky month. Honestly this pub is a must for Edinburgh with a great selection of ales and whisky. Our bartender Adam also made excellent recommendations which really helped two novices. Really authentic place and probably one of my new favourite pubs.

Impressive selection
Sep 2020 • Couples
If you like a massive range of whisky, this is where to go. The staff know their stuff, even if you don't. And I didn't. They ask questions to understand your taste and suggest whiskys to suit and as a new comer they were spot on. My partner knows more and about whisky so set a harder challenge to the young lad serving. But again they came up trumphs, she was very impressed with her drink too.

Great bar in the city centre
Mar 2020 • Couples
Stopped here for a couple of drinks after wandering around Edinburgh city centre. The bar staff were friendly and had a high level of knowledge about the drinks that they served. We had a couple of beers but there is also a large selection of whisky. Five minute walk from the castle.

Disappointing
Feb 2020 • Friends
This is a craft bar so usually the bar staff can help direct you to something you like. The bar maid was short and really unfriendly, preachy and rude does not sell drinks

Lovely little pub.

A little gem of a pub in a great street. Well worth popping in if shopping in this area. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere.

Basic old style single room bar with an emphasis on real ales, whisky and pies. Basic but brilliant. Recommended.

A great little pub!
Oct 2019
Came in for a few drinks with my family in the evening, got a table, no music or fruit machines, good beers within a rustic feeling, my sort of pub! Prices were good as was the service. A great little pub give it a go!
