This place wasn't really my cup of tea - decor, music etc...although I have to admit that the toilet door 'situation' is pretty funny.
Also, the prices are really good for such a central location.
3 badger stars.

Great themed pub with great food, fast service without spending too much i really enjoy coming here yes it can get really busy but its such a good atmosphere you dont really care.

A horror themed pub with a good atmosphere. The food and drinks are reasonably priced, although it doesn't offer the best bar snacks in the world, and the staff are friendly. Well worth a visit if you're in that part of town.

I’m holidaying in the UK from Australia and was refused service by the unfriendly Manager because my 34 year old Asian friend was not carrying any identification. We have visited pubs all over the UK and this is the only place that has been a problem. I wonder why. My complaint was brushed aside. They refused to tell me the last time they’d asked a 34 year old Caucasian for his identification. The company said “Under the current laws the person responsible for running any bar is permitted to refuse service for any number of reasons ... a reason does not have to be given.” Left a very sour taste in our mouths and spoiled our visit to Edinburgh.

A really fun theme bar. It serves bar food and also a range of creepy cocktails! It is quite dark inside the actual bar but this adds to the whole atmosphere of the place. There is lots of sitting space with a range of different sized tables. The food is quite cheap and has the general range of bar food such as burgers and pies, and the cocktails have deals on them if you are buying more than one, and they are available both in glasses and as pitchers!
The staff are friendly and it mostly seems to be the student crowd who goes here, and its a great place to stop off on a night out.
In the Edinburgh Festival, the underground section is used as a venue which draws a good crowd.

Very tourist friendly this bar and worth going to just to experience the bookshelf toilets complete with blood stains and random screaming in the mens. In fact the toilets freak me out so much I usually just hold on till get home! I know that's a bit too much information sorry.
Great window seat and love the huge padded phantom of the opera type seats as well around the front of the bar. It's actually quite huge in here with seating stretching all the way to the back with weird and wonderful displays all the way down.
Very gothic sort of atmosphere in here which i guess you could guess by the name, they also have I think its called the Crypt bar downstairs where they have comedians and goth bands - definetly a goth sort of place this one but definetly a place to take visitor's to Edinburgh its just a bit different even if it is all a bit obvious I like it. I especially love the fire torches on the roof as you walk in - nice touch! Worth a drink if you've never been.

Really liked this pub. Staff were fast and friendly, drinks were fine. Great cocktails. Has pinball machine which my husband loved. Toilets hidden behind book shelves. Brilliant for people watching as you get some great characters. Decor was very atmospheric.

Two words: incredible cocktails.
I love J&H, but they lose a star for closing too early on weekdays and sometimes-brusque bar staff. Otherwise, go there! Try the "Wrath" cocktail... so good!

It is a shame that this bar is such a long walk from where I live but I love it. If you're going to go to a themed bar don't go to frankensteins - go here! It's decor is wonderfully gothic in an old style sense with bookcases lining the walls. It's always fun when you're there for the first time, struggling to find the loos (behind a bookcase). They play great music here, the staff are friendly and I love their cocktails. Try the all 7 of the deadly sins - I dunno if they still do but they used to give you a tshirt if you did. I thoroughly recommend this place and look forward to revisiting it during the festive period.

A fantastic bar, I like the tables and the tolet doors are so unusual but can be confusing!
Their cocktails are great and better value than a lot of places, also their test tube shots are nice, I love the chocolate one.
The food’s also nice here and they had a 2 meals for £8 offer last time we went, I think their nachos are great.
