At the foot of an 1880s four-storey tenement, this large high-ceilinged public bar is thought to be much as it was, though the original gantry, as the photo in the bar shows, was increased in height in 1990. The old counter has two substantial but short partitions with mirrored panels and, rising from them, two columns with decorative capitals. The lounge, with its separate entrance in Roseburn Street, has an old counter and three columns, but the gantry and fireplace are modern. On the right is the small, separate, modernised Fly Half Bar.

Close to both Scotland's national rugby stadium Murrayfield and Hearts football ground, this pub is very busy on match days. At the foot of a 1880s four-storey grey stone tenement, the large high ceilinged public bar is thought to be much as it was but the original gantry, as the photo in the bar shows, was increased in height in 1990. The old bar counter has two substantial but short partitions with mirrored panels and rising from them are two columns with decorative capitals. The room has wall panelling, some to full height and five of the eight old etched window panels remain. There are original mirrors from Campbell & Co (two) and Wm Murray's. Off to the right is a small separate Fly Half Bar that retains its original ‘Jug Bar’ etched panel in the door but the panelling and seating are modern. Rugby photos etc. adorn the walls. The lounge, with its separate entrance in Roseburn Street, has an old counter and three columns with capitals, but the gantry and fireplace are modern.
