Description: Bert's Bar Edinburgh is famed for its real ales which all meet the high Cask Marque standard of approval - which means we pour the perfect pint every time!However it is not just all about the beer! We enjoy a great reputation for not only serving fantastic pub food to a mix of customers but also serving everyone with a smile... no matter how busy we are! We provide substantial Scottish pub food for unsubstantial prices.

Decided to ditch the new burger place around the corner for Bert's and so glad we did. The food was lovely, very reasonably priced and the girl who served us friendly and helpful. Will be back very soon.

This is my pal's favourite bar to watch the fitba. I quite like it too. They have a good selection of ales and lagers on draught at reasonable prices considering you're in the the West End of Edinburgh. Scotch pies are good and any stranger would think the pub has been there for ages as it has a very Edwardian... More

My partner had been to Berts a few years ago with friends and was very impressed with the pies and atmosphere so we decided to pop in for a quick bite. What a massive disappointment this was to be.. We ordered steak and gravy pies, mine with chips (which were lovely) my partners with mash.. The gravy was like brown... More

Still very good pies and real ales! Though I miss the days of having Caley /80 as a house ale I've still got a soft spot for this place. Casks are kept in very good condition, your pint will be poured right, you'll be comfortable and have either a good drink or a nice meal. The menu's more restricted than... More

I have visited this bar before to sample their 'famous pies' but was really disappointed on this occasion as were the friends I was with. We all had pie meals and the portion size is just right for a lunchtime but the pies were really poor given that they are supposed to be a specialty. I ordered the traditional scotch... More

Hi There, We currently use diced Mutton for our Scotch Pies filling, but this raised a few questions from customers when we starting making the Pies in house again. We have taken on board all our customers comments and will be moving onto a minced Mutton which is more of a Traditional Scotch Pie. We are always thankful for comments... More

Popped in for quick tea and ordered fish and chips. Must admit I should have asked what the 'fish' was as it was certainly not the traditional haddock or cod one would expect in Scotland and whatever it was was a bit sloppy and a very small portion. And the 'chips' were actually potato wedges! Wee bit disappointing but beer... More

Hi There I'm sorry that you were disappointing with your meal. The fish currently is not Haddock but we are looking at suppliers for our new menu coming in September so i have taken your comments on board and are looking into it.
