Craft beer free house, with ten constantly-changing keg and cask lines and thirty international bottles and cans in deepest, darkest North Leith.
With The Shore's bar scene continuing to scrub itself up as the craft beer revolution blows through, it’s high time North Leith got a bit more in on the act. The Dreadnought is a little too far out of the way to become a destination bar – and in fact, most customers are locals – but it absolutely deserves to be on the radar of beer lovers across the city. The bar is made up of a single, high-windowed corner room, freshly decorated in a neutral, contemporary style where the beer is the star. This free house keeps a good and thoughtful cellar – they have a range of ten constantly-changing keg and cask lines, as well as 30 international bottles and cans. There is a link-up with local brewery Pilot, a fascination with gin – many from Scotland – and the hungry drinker can order a delivery from Leith Walk pizza joint Origano and even eat it on a plate. Come in North Leith – this is your time to shine.
