Edinburgh is renowned for many things including its great pubs. There is a particularly large concentration in the city centre in Rose Street (runs parallel to Princes Street), the Grassmarket and the Royal Mile. Jekyll & Hyde in Hanover Street has sinful cocktails, Dirty Dick's is the real stuff and has great whiskys. We love the Beehive Inn in the Grassmarket; the risotto is out of this world and the amount of stuff on the walls and ceiling is impressive.

Most of Edinburgh pubs open until midnight or 1 am. For info on Scotland alcohol licensing hours check our page.
