Best pubs and bars in the Old Town
Our favourite places for beer, wine and cocktails in Edinburgh's historic Old Town
The cobbled streets of Edinburgh's historic Old Town have hosted a whole lot of watering holes since the days of Auld Reekie. The tradition lives on today with a strong selection of wine and cocktail bars, historic hostelries, and a young breed of bars championing cask and craft ales.
