This classic, dark wood-lined pub has a laid-back appearance and a laid-back staff to match. It used to be a church, hence the name and the ecclesiastical tone of many of the fixtures and fittings. Now it is the backdrop to the worship of real ales, craft beers and whiskey. It's a welcoming pub with a lively conversational atmosphere helped by the lack of blaring music. As well as an excellent range of beers, ales and spirits revelers can enjoy some rather good tapas-style food and a generous Scottish breakfast on Sundays. Located at the edge of the Meadows, Cloisters is popular with students, real ales devotees, tourists and a loyal band of locals.
