Deacon Brodies Tavern435 Lawnmarket
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Very busy, traditional pub on the Royal Mile, popular with tourists and locals. The décor narrates the story of local villain William Brodie, the real life inspiration behind Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, who was born and hanged nearby. The decorative wooden ceiling is of interest. The changing real ales are usually from smaller breweries, some not often found in Edinburgh. An upstairs restaurant provides more space for diners. Children are only allowed in the restaurant until 8pm.
