Description: In Edinburgh's old town, just off the Royal Mile, you'll find new The Holyrood 9A. A place to bring friends and discover a local bar restaurant to call your own in the heart of the city. The gleaming pumps offer 20 beer and ale varieties from Scotland and around the world. There's wines and spirits in any which way and a classic cocktail list for your well deserved post-work tipple.The Holyrood's all day menu includes mouth-watering 'two-handers' - an eclectic array of delicious gourmet burgers, with plenty more large and small dishes including options for our vegetarian pals. Ask us about reserving a bar corner or a whole room for your own event. Stay all afternoon or night and spoil yourself. As Alexander Pope said, 'a little beer is a dangerous thing...'

Myself and my partner popped in the other night, drinks are a bit pricey- but still cheap for central Edinburgh, The food was outstanding! I will definitely be back next time im in the city.

This is a fabulous burger bar, and likely one of the best in Edinburgh. There is a huge variety of gourmet burger options from beef, chicken, veggie and a few special ones as well. Everything on the menu looked so tasty, it was difficult to choose and watching the burger boards (served on wooden boards) come out of the kitchen made it even more difficult. Every burger is served with with a delicious side of homemade slaw and crispy chips of your choice. And to top it off, the bar is stocked with a huge selection of beers on tap (or bottled) from all around the world. Its worth looking up and visiting. Its not far off the tourist path, but without knowing where it is it could easily be missed.

Oh, and the brunch looked good too.

Great atmosphere, excellent drink selection and phenomenal food. Afterwards it felt like I should have been paying 50% more.

The sweet potato fries were a highlight, and the Burgers were outstanding.

Needed a place near Holyrood to fit with our tight schedule and could not have picked a better establishment. Burgers in a bar might not sound like the best place for food but the fare is well thought out and excellently prepared. Filling, delicious, good value, top-notch service - everything you want in a meal when traveling in a new city. Highly recommended.
