Roseburn Bar, Edinburgh

Even though Davy Wilson's no longer in charge, still one of the best pubs in town.

The Golf Tavern, Edinburgh

Ruined. Absolutely ruined. Avoid at all costs.

Bennet's Bar, Edinburgh

It's lost a little of it's charm, but Bennet's is still one of the very best in the town. Just what an Edinburgh boozer should be.

The Northern Bar, Edinburgh

Good pub - and ideal for a swift pint if you're waiting for a carry-out from the brilliant Loon Fung almost next door!

Teuchters, Edinburgh

Very decent boozer with good beers. Try the food downstairs.

The Blue Blazer, Edinburgh

Great pub, good beer, decent whisky and wine - eclectic crowd.

Harry's Bar, Edinburgh

If you want a big slice of mulleted, shoulder-padded 80's on a Saturday night - and you're mad enough to take it on - Harry's is you place.

Mathers, Edinburgh

The 80/- is now shockingly undrinkably horrinbly bad. Avoid at all costs.

Bannermans, Edinburgh

A faded shadow of its former self. Can they cram in any more Guinness promotional tat? Very disappointing.

Bailie Bar, Stockbridge

Decent 80/-. Say no more

The Bow Bar, Edinburgh

The Bow Bar shows that with a bit of time and money and love and care you can create a "proper" Edinburgh boozer from scratch. Mr Fraser's earlier works at the Blue Blazer and the Cumberland were just the warm-up for thi brilliant little pub. It ticks all the boxes.

The Out House, Edinburgh

Excellent contemporary bar serving the creative and overworked community. Great beer garden - probably the most central in the city now.

The Barony Bar, Edinburgh

A very good boozer in a relaxed gay-friendly part of town

The Oxford Bar, Edinburgh

Another honest Edinburgh boozer which hasn't really changed in 100 years. Get in there - keep your eyes and ears open and your mouth shut (apart from sampling the fine ales) and you'll begin to understand what Edinburgh is about.

The Cambridge Bar, Edinburgh

The Cambridge has improved 1000% since it re-opened.

Kay's Bar, Edinburgh

Along with Clarks, the Canny Man and the Diggers, Kay's is your perfect Edinburgh howff. Great beer, managed with, eh, personality warm surroundings and a good crowd. Pile in on a dark dreich rainy/snowy night and you'll not want to leave.

The Waterloo Buffet, Edinburgh

Now closed

Tiles Cafe Bar, Edinburgh

TheGP - you're an idiot. The building was an insurance office until 5 years ago. That said, it's an excellent makeover and a decent boozer.

Grape, Edinburgh

The food's up and down, but I object to a bar called "Garpe" having one of the worst wine lists in town. When it first opened the wine list was exceelent. Now your local petrol station has a better cheaper range.

The Windsor Buffet, Edinburgh

So long as you know your postcodes, the Sunday evening pub quiz is a belter.

26 Mar 2006 21:34

The Diggers (Athletic Arms), Edinburgh

So long as you're drinking heavy, this is THE Edinburgh pub.

26 Mar 2006 21:33

Clarks Bar, Edinburgh

A proper Edinburgh boozer: Gantry bar - check. Maroon Veitchi flooring - check. Maroon vinyl seating - check. 80 bob - check. Licensee who's been looking after proper beer for 30 years - check. Regular crowd of >300 - check. Clark's is the real deal.
