One of Edinburgh's best kept secrets and rightly so. A proper pub with staff who not only care but know what they are selling. Without a doubt one of the top ten experiences in Edinburgh that is off the beaten track and should not be...More
My wife and I had the good fortune to re-visit Kays Bar in Edinburgh a few days ago and arrived in time for lunch. This is a great, honest Scottish bar that serves excellent and great value lunches washed down with a large selection of...More
We were staying on George Street and read the revues. We used google to find Kays but it's only five minutes from the Charlote Square end and worth a try. No frills but a proper friendly pub. We needed a snack but lunchtime food was...More
Kay’s was recommended by a Scottish friend. I stopped in early afternoon and Fraser the proprietor was manning the taps, spent time explaining the history of Edinburgh plus the history of the bar. An off the beaten path, local pub where everyone was friendly. Love...More
We were recommended this lovely small pub for some decent beers and weren't disappointed.
We came up for a reverse Rugby weekend and thought we'd try here for a few beers and stayed all afternoon and watched the Wales vs Scotland match with the locals....More
We were doing a trip round the lovely old pubs of Edinburgh and this one came up - it was lovely, staff were friendly, hot mulled cider great, and hubby tells me the beer was great too. Would definitely recommend.
One of Edinburgh's great secrets. Was taken here by a friend on a day's whisky outing around the capital and its definitely not to be missed. Not the easiest place to find as it off the beaten track, but that means its thankfully mostly free...More
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
