Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This traditionally fronted bar located in the city's financial district doesn't need attention-grabbing A-boards to draw in crowds for lunch or post-work drinks. Inside the domed ceiling is reminiscent of a ship's hull, with stained-glass windows hinting at the buildings maturity. The menu offers generously portioned burgers, pizzas and sandwiches, with a weekly selection of specials. The New Yorker ciabatta is crammed with pastrami, sauerkraut and Swiss cheese while the Wolf of Waterloo Street burger tops a high-quality beef patty with a hefty slab of haggis and a wheel of chorizo. Behind the bar there's a focus on Scottish craft beer and Scottish gins, as well as a growing selection of rum choices. With several booths equipped with their own TVs, tables book up fast for big games. A pub quiz, live folk and regular club nights in the venue complete the live entertainment.
