Bennets, Edinburgh

Tel: 44 131 229 5143's insider take:

This is a local workingman's pub—more than 100 malt whiskies are given pride of place along the tiered wooden bar—but proximity to a large student population and the King's Theatre next door save it from being the sole preserve of growling old Scottish men. Its beautiful Victorian interior has intricately carved wood booths, a cute, private snug at the end of the bar (no longer in use), and a front covered in leaded-glass panels. A second room, in the back, isn't nearly as impressive.
