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.
