The Ale House


Traditional Pubs Bars with Food Music Bars

The Ale House Bar & Venue can be found in the Newington area of the city and is in walking distance from the City Centre- hosting 6 nights of live music each week! During the day The Ale House is a traditional pub where you can enjoy a cask-conditioned ale at your leisure while chatting to the locals and if you want to have some peace and quiet there are always daily papers available.

The bar comes alive in the evenings with live sessions including a Spanish Music Night on a Monday from 8pm, Songwriter's Night every Tuesday, a Open/ Acoustic Jam session on a Thursday, a very popular Open-mic Night on a Friday and a special Blues Session on a Sunday afternoon from 4pm, which is followed by the Pub Quiz in the evening.

Whatever night you decide to visit, you are guaranteed a warm welcome from the friendly staff and you can enjoy the atmosphere created as everyone gets involved to cheer on the incredible musical talent that Edinburgh has to offer. The bar houses an attractive gantry serving weekly guest cask ales and an excellent range of malt whiskies. Live Sport is shown on the bar's big screens daily and the kitchen serves fresh food Mon-Sat 12-9pm, with a great traditional menu.
