Fodor's Review

Old Blackfriars enjoys a nice location near the end of Union Street. The lighting is dim, and the big fireplace warms things up on a chilly evening, although it can get crowded as the night goes on. This cask ale pub has a great selection—Belhaven St. Andrews Ale and Caledonian 80 top the list.
