With its interior design drawing inspiration from Orkney’s Viking past, Helgi’s is a traditional pub on Kirkwall’s harbour front with slate floors and wood-panelled walls. There’s an impressive range of local beers on tap – including Swannay Brewery’s Scapa Scpecial and IPA – in addition to bottles from near and far and whisky galore. At Helgi’s the food offer is above and beyond what can normally be expected from pub fare, with the classic curries, chilli, burgers and fish and chips bolstered by quality Orkney produce – smoked cheddar, Westray crab pate, hot and cold smoked salmon, local sausages, and even a charcuterie platter from the Orkney Fine Meat Company. Regular live music nights add to the appeal of this strictly over-18s pub.
