Loving this pub!
First of all: it´s huge! If you want to go out with more than only 2 friends, you often do have problems finding a place in Edinburgh. That´s where The Standing Order scores! Due to its size, you can are very likely to find some space.
I also love the atmosphere <3
The food is not only extremely cheap, it is also really good!
I guess I have eaten the simple steak with chips more than 10 times in 3 months...
I can hardly recommend the breakfast for 2.99 Pounds!
Conclusion: Best value for money in town!

City centre Wetherspoons, ’nuff said! Cheap and (mostly) cheerful.

Its a Whetherspoons so you know what you'll get. Its one of the better ones though and has a bit of character.

Some say, and with good reason, that once you’ve been to one Wetherspoons, you’ve been to them all. The same menu, the same drinks offers, the same threadbare carpets and so on. Perhaps it’s only after frequenting several that you can realistically come to prefer one over the other, just as somebody who has never been a whisky drinker might never tell the difference between an Islay single malt and a Bell’s, whilst a seasoned whisky taster might detect the subtle overtones of peat and barley in the former that are absent in the latter.
But I for one have spent enough time in budget drinking establishments to become something of a Wetherspoons connoisseur. I can vouch for this particular one to be entirely passable; the décor is rather lovely, just what you might come to expect from George Street. The building itself is suitably impressive, having once been a large bank. The staff are really cool, and the drinks aren’t (too) watered down.
Oh, and it’s dirt cheap.

could not agree more! they get the punters in by being cheap in every sense of the word apart from the location and building's grandeur!
There is no system at the bar and someone's always eyeing you up for what ever reason.. many many leather jackets..
dirty floor, toilets not clean, tables un-wiped etc.., staff mostly rushed off their feet, many punters waiting to be served.
this is the 'get 'm in' 'stack 'm high' kind of bar.. though if you are looking for a cheap pint..I'd suggest staying home with your mates and make a lot of noise .. you will still get more atmosphere than this place.. 1 star for the cheapness and location

Ok before I start, I have to say depends on what you're looking for in a bar and for me personally this is very far from it.
I'll start off by saying ok its in a very central location and its a huge bar so its not difficult to find somewhere to stand or sit and the building itself is a really gorgeous building and its pretty cheap for drinks.
Having said that, it needs some serious updating, you stick to the floor, its manky and needs some serious cleaning, the toilets are rough, its always full of bucks and hens or groups of guys looking for a fight, you can never hear music its just background white noise and there's no atmosphere whatsoever! It is a Wetherspoons and its about the same as all the other Wetherspoons - only bigger. They do food but its the chips and a burger sort of food and not of the best quality.
So if you're after cheap drinks and can't get in anywhere else, it's a good night out but otherwise there are about 972 bars in Edinburgh that are far better and far more worthy of your hard earned cash

A typical Weatherspoon bar. Very cheap, very central, and very busy. As others have mentioned, it is placed in a gorgeous Georgian house, so the architecture is stunning. Load of students make regular visits, so expect many young faces. Service is ok. It is the cheapest bar in the city where you can get a pint of beer for 2.50.

As other people have said, the building is gorgeous, but inside is quite dirty, as the bar is really busy and the staff have no time to get round and clear glasses and plates. Queue for the bar at the weekend is 3 deep. Cheap Wetherspoons prices and usual food menu. Probably a good place to visit for a few quick drinks on your way to somewhere else.

The building itself is beautiful, which I think helps attract punters. It's decent for a quick drink after shopping, but as for a night out, no. There is a lack of atmosphere, the wait at the bar is unreal, and I had my ID checked with a blacklight about 4 times, even just walking about. I'm all for IDing but don't make me feel like a criminal!

Typical Wetherspoons pub. Cheap enough drink, a cloud of smoke outside the doors and barely enough room to swing a cat (or even a kitten) despite its initial cavernous appearance.
Not my favourite pub in Edinburgh, but one for those times when you’re skint/desperate.
