Great, cozy little pub. Strange to have such a place in the city centre. The drinks are incredibly reasonably priced, and served to a better standard than we could've hoped for. The choice of music available is astounding, I'm sure they said they had over...More

Just walk inside - the staff and regulars are instantly your life-long chums. Good drinks, good prices, and a great atmosphere of people genuinely enjoying life in the heart of a beautiful city. What more can you ask for?

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything

even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
