About the Pub

Interesting bar, with 5 rooms, in the former veterinary school that is part of the Summerhall creative hub for the arts. Old projector slides are set into the bar counter. The real ales are from Barney’s Brewery, which is just behind the bar. The quiet suntrap courtyard is billed as Edinburgh’s biggest beer garden. It gets very busy during the August festival. Up to 8 Draught Craft beers from Barney’s and Draught local gin from Pickering's is also on tap.

NOTE: Opening times are extended in August.
