Was here late Saturday afternoon/early evening during a Wales v Ireland rugby game. The ambience was great: jocular and enthusiastic without being rowdy or noisy. A great option if you fancy keeping track of the match, but also want to enjoy a bit of quiet chat/banter with your friends.
The pub itself is delightful, a mix of booth seats, cosy corners and high tables with stools, warm lighting in fascinating light hangings, and walls papered with sheet music and gentle, unimposing red tartan. There is a wide selection of real ales (I had a Raven Ale from the Orkney's) and a good whiskey selection. The food is also delicious -- standard pub grub, burgers and what not, but well prepared, tasty and served with a smile to your table.
A good option if you find yourself in the Royal Mile/North Bridge area.
Great pub! Brilliant laugh, all in all a really good night!
Had not been there since it was the Fiscal & Firkin(not a good pub then). Met a few friends on 18/6/10 for a bite to eat & a few drinks & had a great time. The food was really good, waiting staff really helpfull & took care of our table so well(even though they were only getting to terms with a new menu that had only started a few days
before). After our meal we stayed to see the live music which was great, the bar staff were really pushed at times but we never waited long to get served & they threw the banter around so well that the staff & the customers alike had a really good Fiday night. Eventually we headed down to George Street(our original destination).
Well done the Advocate, we will return. ***
You can eat anything here as long as it is a sausage - they have a huge variety of options and the food stays on till relatively late. Good for a quieter one, as its not normally too loud to hear people. Located not far from the tron.
This is a great bar for a quieter type night, or early evening drinks with friends. With real ale on draught and all other drinks you could possibly want, the prices are good, there are lots of seats available and its quiet enough to be able to hear the conversation. On a weekend there are live bands, but the atmosphere in this bar is friendly and the crowd is slightly older. Definitely a ‘pub’ pub.
