Best pubs and bars in Stockbridge
This stylish quarter in North Edinburgh is one of the city's best places for wine bars and cocktails
Stockbridge has its classic bars, but recently it has become the epicentre of Edinburgh's wine bar reinvention. Leave those connotations at the door - where once there were stockbrokers, now there's music, wine-and-cheese flights and charcuterie, and the mobile phones are a lot smaller.
Smith & Gertrude
26 Hamilton Place, EH3 5AU
Quality music, cheese, charcuterie and wine at this laid-back reinvention of the contemporary wine bar.
