Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2017 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Teuchters is a locals' pub which invites a loyal crowd and is often also adopted by tourists for their time in Edinburgh, thanks to its friendly, Scottish feel. It’s also a rugby pub, with fixtures advertised and major matches shown. The décor is traditional, with plenty of dark wood and a couple of sofas in the back. You won’t go thirsty—choose from over 80 malt whiskies, including a series of flights, or from 12 draught (mostly Scottish) beers. There’s a long gin list and prosecco cocktails too. You won’t go hungry either – the bar shares a kitchen with the downstairs bistro and produces delicious Cullen skink; stovies; and haggis, neeps and tatties in a mug (easier to eat if you’re drinking); as well as full breakfasts (until 12.30pm), deli platters, pies, burgers and dogs.
