Website.

The pub is found in Edinburgh, Edinburgh, City of, EH11 2JX.

More commonly known as Diggers, as it is located between two cemeteries in Angle Park Terrace, this is a classic drinkers' pub. It has suffered some internal changes in recent years with the removal of some screens but it is still worth a visit for the interior. One large bar and a snug at the rear. Autovacs in use on some ales.

We have visited this pub twice, seen 11 different beers and tried 3 of them.
