The Phoenix has been going for over 150 years, and in all that time it’s probably never been quiet. Always busy, the small, ramshackle pub is a boisterous affair, equally popular with students and locals all out for a good time, whether it’s noon or midnight. The place is like a down-at-heel Laird, the ornate décor scuffed around the edges, but it’s all the more charming for that. The tiny bar is worked with considerable good nature and humour, and with some cracking real ales and an excellent reputation for simple bar food, it’s a great, bustling wee venue.
Even from the outside, it's clear that this is a venue with character. Primarily a pub, it is famed locally for its hearty grub, including whopping burgers and a chilli that can bring a flush to the cheeks on a cold winter's day. Owner Alan Bannerman has made sure that his waiting and bar staff are friendly and knowledgeable and there's a good rotating stock of craft beers to accompany the food.
