Toby Carvery

St Johns Road, Edinburgh, EH12 8AX

52 Canoes

13 Melville Place, Edinburgh, EH3 7PR

Take a deep breath, descend the stairs, and enter 52 Canoes Tiki Den. Part surf shack, part underground drinking lair, its low ceiling and deep-red walls are covered with an eclectic and entertaining array of the kitsch and colourful. Essentially a bar…

Amicus Apple

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…

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 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…

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…

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…

Blackfriars

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…

Boda Bar

229 Leith Walk, Edinburgh, EH6 8NY

Having set up residence long before we all became obsessed with everything Scandinavian, Boda is a lively member of the Leith Walk bar scene. Small and cosy, this watering hole prides itself on its selection of beers and gins, which will have you…

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

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…

Boteco do Brasil

47 Lothian Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1HB

Inhabiting the long narrow space that used to be Negociants, Boteca Do Brasil is a busy, bustly burst of colour and sound. Graffiti-style murals on the walls jostle for space with drinks offers and birthday packages, and the floor is filled with tables…

The Bothy Restaurant & Drinkery

18 Corstorphine Road, Edinburgh, EH12 6HN

The recent revamp of the Murrayfield Hotel's bar and restaurant has proved a welcome addition to the neighbourhood. Although obviously popular on rugby match days and concert nights, thanks to its position opposite Murrayfield Stadium, the Bothy is…

The Brass Monkey

14 Drummond Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9TU

The undoubted silverback of Edinburgh’s simian trio, the Drummond Street version is still very much the king of the swingers, drawing a lively and youthful crowd. It is a firm favourite with students who are fond of an above-par pint and a…

The Brass Monkey Leith

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…

BrewDog Edinburgh

143–145 Cowgate, Edinburgh, EH1 1JS

Any bar that proclaims 'no live sport, no football, no shots and no Stella' isn’t likely to be a shrinking violet. Urban and edgy in equal measure, BrewDog barks out bags of attitude to an already colourful Cowgate. The narrow bar has half a dozen…

Buckstone Pub & Kitchen

134 Braid Road, Edinburgh, EH10 6JD

We offer superb fresh home cooked Scottish food, using the very best local produce to create a comfortable and enjoyable dining experience. Our food is cooked to rosette standard and everything is freshly prepared including breads ans pastry. We even…

Burger Meats Bun

1 Forth Street, Edinburgh, EH1 3JX

A year after its Glasgow debut, Burger Meats Bun opens in early July in the former Urban Angel premises on Forth Street, just off Broughton Street in Edinburgh. Set up by manager Ben Dantzic and chef James Forrest, who met working at the Peat Inn in…

Café Royal Circle Bar

19 West Register Street, Edinburgh, EH2 2AA

Established in 1863, the Café Royal Circle Bar has decades of history woven into its stylish interior. The inviting leather-cushioned booths and the swarms of punters make it a good spot for people watching over a glass of wine. The room is dominated by…

Café Voltaire

36–38 Blair Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1QR

Urban, industrial, retro and kitsch – Cafe Voltaire is one of the city’s most convivial late-night music bars. Kicking on until 3am every night, friendly staff influence carefully selected playlists with DJs most evenings pumping out accessible house…

Carriers Quarters

42 Bernard Street, Edinburgh, EH6 6PR

Deservedly proud of their renowned steak pie, this classic pub (the oldest unaltered one in Leith, dating back to 1785) does a very fine line in simple, hearty pub grub. Alongside the steak pie, which comes with a thick and very rich Belhaven Best…
