The Oxford Bar
The Oxford Bar has been the watering hole favoured by Scottish writers and artists for decades, even centuries. More recently the pub has been drawn to the public awareness by the Ian Rankin's inspector Rebus connection.
Sydney Goodsir Smith immortalised the pub in his “CAROTID CORNUCOPIUS” which Hugh MacDiarmid described as “doing for Edinburgh no less successfully what Joyce did for Dublin in Ulyssess”.
Apparently, the tradition has persisted to the present day where writers and artists continue to feature amongst the broad spectrum of customers.
