Toby Carvery

St Johns Road, Edinburgh, EH12 8AX

A Room in the West End

26 William Street, Edinburgh, EH3 7NH

A Room in the West End’s signature dishes – haggis, neeps and tatties to start and their famous banoffee pie to finish – signal their strengths. This place excels at well cooked, comfortable dinners that will interest but not dominate the conversation.

Alan Breck Lounge

159 Constitution Street, Edinburgh, EH6 7AD

Amicus Apple (Closed)

17 Frederick Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2EY

For a spot of lunch in between shopping, or (weather permitting) a couple of cocktails on the terrace, Amicus Apple is a great city-centre daytime hangout, as well as a classy and stylish venue for dinner, or evening drinks before hitting the town.

Angels' Share Hotel & Bar

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…

Assembly Checkpoint

3 Bristo Place, Edinburgh, EH1 1EY

The Ball Room

3A Jordan Lane, Edinburgh, EH10 4RB

The Ball Room combines delicious homemade food, classic cocktails, great music and friendly staff with American and British pool, snooker and darts. The Ball Room boasts a variety of snooker and pool tables as well as several flat-screen televisions…

Bangkok Bar

36 Broughton Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3SB

The old Blue Moon Café may be a sadly missed Broughton Street institution, but Newhaven-based Asian fusion restaurant Port of Siam’s opening of a new branch in its place has brought a new and intriguing personality to the spot. Annexing the restaurant…

Bar G&V

1 George IV Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1AD

Update: Hotel Missoni became G&V Royal Mile Hotel in May 2014, with Bar Missoni re-branded as Bar G&V. The overall offering remains much as described in this year's review. Backed by its family-owned fashion house, Bar Missoni continues to…

Bar Salsa

3 Cowgatehead, Edinburgh, EH1 1JY

Probably the cheapest drinks in town. Right in the centre of everything on Grassmarket at the bottom of Victoria Street. Popular with students and locals alike. Always jumping in the evenings. Great pre-club venue near loads of nightclubs. Open til 1am…

Bar Soba

104 Hanover Street, Edinburgh, EH2 1DR

Enter the bright and slightly industrial feel of Bar Soba, geared to the young or certainly those with great hearing. Drinks are plentiful and good deals abound so the bar is the draw. Dining is a pick and mix of Asian dishes, offering something of…

The Basement Bar and Restaurant

10–12A Broughton Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3RH

Long-acknowledged by regulars in the Broughton Street area and from further afield as being an atmospheric wee hideaway for a late-night drink and a reasonable choice for a Mexican-flavoured bite to eat, the Basement’s recent purchase and refurbishment…

Beehive Inn

18 Grassmarket, Edinburgh, EH1 2JU

Beer & Skittles

Basement, 14 Picardy Place, Edinburgh, EH1 3JT

One observation amid this year’s crop of Edinburgh bars is just how much the craft and specialist beer market has filtered down into commercial pubs, often delivering extensive lines with sledgehammer subtlety in terms of selection. Sited in the…

Betty's Bar

14-16 Grosvenor Street, Edinburgh, EH12 5EG

A petit lounge bar situated in the West End of Edinburgh. Take a step back in time and allow our pin-up paintings to charm you …


1 Chambers Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1HR

Biblos is a relaxing bar, lounge and restaurant with an additional new trendy bar and live events venue on the corner of Chambers Street and South Bridge in Edinburgh’s Old Town area. Biblos has been the focal point of the city’s drinking and dining…

Black Bull Tavern

43 Leith Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3AT

The Black Fox

17 Albert Place, Edinburgh, EH7 5HN

The Blackbird

37–39 Leven Street, Edinburgh, EH3 9LH

From the same stable as worthwhile neighbourhood diners Treacle and Hamilton’s, the young Blackbird has firmly banished memories of the former Auld Toll on the same site, particularly as its predecessor’s feature beer garden is still there. If anything…

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…

The Bon Vivant Stockbridge

4–6 Dean Street, Edinburgh, EH4 1LW

One way to sum up the contrast between this Stockbridge version of the Bon Vivant and its Thistle Street sibling is that there are no weekend DJs but instead there is brunch. Such are the priorities beside the Water of Leith. Otherwise it follows a…

Bond No. 9 (Closed)

84 Commercial Street, Edinburgh, EH6 6LX

Three distinct contemporary spaces make up Bond No. 9: the busy bar area filled with a well-dressed crowd; the conservatory where sport is shown, and the restaurant alcove tucked away from the main bustle and noise. It has a well-deserved reputation as…

The Bonnington

284 Bonnington Road, Edinburgh, EH6 5BE

The Boozy Cow

17 Frederick Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2EY
