Great little bar, it's not a pub, but has a fair range a beers which are all kept well. Large selection of whisky, unfortunately nothing local - shame. We passed Carters early evening and it was full of people having finished work for the day,...More
A lovely warm welcome by staff on a cold dreech day, and cozy surroundings helped thaw our our hands and feet! Lovely selection of gins, and was v happy with the recommendations, and an excellent selection of cask ales. Will see you again next time...More

Average hipster type bar... drinks are decent but staff seem to be more concerned with each other than with customers. Not a smile to be seen for us, but leaping about behind the bar dancing with each other between serving customers. Put some of that...More

I phoned up to inquire (politely) about reserving the upstairs area for a party and was told by the woman who answered that she "didn't like the sound of (my) voice" and that I sounded "like a bad one" to her. Unbelievably rude and unpleasant.
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
