Bert's is an old fashioned, working-man's pub of traditional standing. It looks like it's been there for 100 years. But don't let that fool you; it's a bar which was redesigned in the 1980s to look authentically old. They made a good fist of it,...More

All good, recently refurbished. Bright and airy, in stark contrast to what seems like a life-time ago.

Been here at least 4 times, in different times, different type of groups, and it was always five star experience. Tried several main courses, few starters and almost all deserts. The kitchen is way above from what you expect to get in a bar. Atmosphere...More

We loved it so much that we came for dinner on Saturday and breakfast the today. The place is clean, tidy and very welcoming. The food is fantastic, the menu offers Scottish food with a twist. I recommend the poached salmon with raspberry puree. Loved...More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along

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.
