I re-visited on my latest visit to Ediniburgh mainly because I really enjoyed the pizza last time and fortunately, it was really good this time too. It's not a big bar but I visited on a Tuesday so there was plenty of room. The beer...More

One of my favourites in Edinburgh. A very nice selection of BrewDog beers (Headliners & special brews) + guest craft beers. Only pizza to eat, but who needs more, honestly, especially if the pizza is so delicious as it is here. Nice selection of non-alcoholic...More

45 min wait for half the party's pizzas, 50min wait for the other half. Staff didn't think this was too long to wait. I did, especially since we were the only customers! Apparently the pizza oven is small? Wtf?! There were only 4 of us....More

Currently waiting for 4 pizzas. And have been for 40 minutes. We are in Edinburgh for the march, and we had an hour when we ordered. The march starts in 20 minutes. Really disappointed as we were the only customers when we ordered and I've...More

As a fan of brew dog bars, sadly I can only echo the other 1-star reviews which all refer to a patronising and rude male bar tender. In our group was someone who isn’t a big beer drinker and he was consistently spoken to like...More

Must do visit for beerlovers. Large on-tap selection. Great sourdough pizza however the choice is rather limited. A selection of board-games is available.

Visited the brew dog bar at lunchtime and was able to find a booth. Ordered beer and pizza, service great, beer and pizza excellent. Will definitely visit again.

Great local brewery with flight/sample boards. I would highly recommend the “Elvis juice” if still on tap. They also serve pizza too if you need food (I didn’t get it but other peoples looked and smelled good).

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the

Most of their beer is brewdog’s own as you would expect. They do have guest stuff as well so you may drop lucky. If not there’s dozens more to choose from.
