Kyloe Restaurant & Grill

1.8 miles
The Rutland Hotel, 1–3 Rutland Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2AE

With a cow outside and a name that means cattle in Scots, it is easy to guess the focus of Kyloe’s menu. Meat. In particular steaks, with eight different cuts all aged a minimum of 28 days on the bone. With decent sides, such as dripping-fried chips…

The Espy

2.0 miles
62–64 Bath Street, Portobello, Edinburgh, EH15 1HF

The Vintage

1.8 miles
60 Henderson Street, Edinburgh, EH6 6DE

Since opening in 2013 The Vintage has won a host of awards and a reputation as one of the best places to drink and eat in Edinburgh. A joint venture with the Williams Brothers Brewery, this relaxed, friendly bar takes the idea of a gastro-pub and raises…

The Brass Monkey Leith

1.2 miles
362 Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH6 5BR

In many ways, the Leith branch of Brass Monkey has all the ingredients required to be a new-and-improved version of the popular Drummond Street movie bar. Much of the décor is the same: dark wood tables and chairs are interspersed with mismatched…

The King's Wark

1.9 miles
36 The Shore, Edinburgh, EH6 6QU

The Shore area abounds with good bars these days, but none can quite match the King’s Wark both for its classic ambience, with stripped-back stone walls and old-fashioned wooden furniture giving it something approaching the air of a rustic country pub…

Angels' Share Hotel & Bar

1.8 miles
9–11 Hope Street, Edinburgh, EH2 4EL

Replacing the Hudson Hotel, this is Le Monde owner Billy Lowe’s latest project. The layout remains similar, although the interior is slicker - think industrial boudoir - with portraits of famous Scots such as Sean Connery, Ewan McGregor and erm, Tiffany…


0.9 miles
57–61 Blackfriars Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1NB

Formerly a slightly eccentric bohemian hangout renowned for its so-so vegetarian menu and diminutive pool cues, this Old Town stalwart has been reincarnated: half-pub, half-bistro, all proper Bo. Genuinely local, genuinely seasonal and genuinely cooked…

Indigo Yard

1.8 miles
7 Charlotte Lane, Edinburgh, EH2 4QZ

Almost 20 years ago a courtyard behind Charlotte Square was glazed over, thus extending a simple conversion, and Indigo Yard was born. While the trendiness pendulum has swung hither and yon, Indigo Yard maintains its place in the ‘where to unwind over…

The Mash Tun

0.8 miles
154 Easter Road, Edinburgh, EH7 5RL

Sister pub to the Newington’s long-standing Greenmantle, the Mash Tun keeps the same cosy, neighbourhood vibe, while injecting just a little bit of style into the drinking spots on Easter Road. The ‘pub classics’ section of the menu features pub grub…

Stockbridge Tap

2.0 miles
2 Raeburn Place, Edinburgh, EH4 1HN

An oasis of old-time familiarity in the heart of long-since gentrified Stockbridge, the Tap is the boozer of choice for regular locals who don’t expect their drinking haunts to come with an award-winning menu or an extensive wine list. That said, it…

Bar Kohl

1.1 miles
54 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1EJ

Whisper it quietly to their competitors – Bar Kohl may well lay claim to the best burgers in town. Well-sourced and well-seasoned beef patties underpin an appealing all-day menu with a supporting cast of chicken, lamb and falafel options, sweet potato…

1.6 miles
24 Howe Street, Edinburgh, EH3 6TG

With a bar stocked with over 60 types of gin, from Scotland and around the world, Mother’s certainly seems to know its spirits. A large blackboard chalks up the varieties on offer, and even advises tonic pairings (with Fever Tree or Fentimans) in case…
