Best Traditional Pubs in Old Town

Local Recommendations from our My Guide Edinburgh team

Traditional pubs are easily found throughout the city. They are all very cosy and warm with a very friendly atmosphere.

Open from early morning, these pubs far from being a place to drown the sorrows, instead are frequently the place to celebrate. Regularly at night they will display sporting matches on big screens and projectors, host pub quizzes, darts tournaments, open mic nights, comedy and live music. Meanwhile in the day they'll feed you hearty meals, starters and desserts, as well as teas, coffees and even smoothies.
