Ryrie's, Haymarket Terrace, Edinburgh (exterior)

I missed this visit, and the lads decided to record their notes in a short audio clip instead of filling out a form like last time:

Doug: Is there hooks?
Russ: No ‘ooks at bar.
Doug: What beers are there?
Russ: Guinness, Carling, Stella, Ice Cold Tennents (mmmm Tennents),
Doug: Haha
Russ: Flying Scotsman, Black Sheep Bitter, Deuchars IPA, Edinburgh Gold, St Austell Rock’n’Roll…. Ruck’n’Roll….ehm…..then
Iain: Bays Up & Under,
Russ: …and then some cider
Doug: Describe the ambience.
Russ: [pauses to consider the ambience] Pleasant ambience. Pleasant.
Doug: What about the music?
Russ: Too low to hear.
Russ: Facilities.
Doug: What pub is it?
Russ: [creepily] Ryrie’s
Doug: What time is it?
Iain: What?
Russ: heh heh heh heh heh heh.
Doug: Post note – several clocks.
Russ: [in discussion with Colin] ….check on the way out, yeah.
Doug: View of the castle? To be confirmed.
Russ: Good point.
Doug: Lager Shandy £3.65, Pint of Up & Under £3.75
Russ: So it was more expensive for a lager shandy?
Doug: No it’s 10p cheaper.
Colin: Yeah
Doug: Food Review?
Russ: No Nachos
Russ: Cullen skink though

According to their website it’s a Historic Scotland listed building. It’s a shame the neighbouring Caledonian Ale House wasn’t listed. It got demolished in 2008 to make way for a waste-of-space tram. Grrr…
