OCT 2023 - Pub reopened on Mon 23rd following a massive clear up after waves caused by Storm Babet have crashed through the sea view window. The only pub in Edinburgh directly on the seafront with panoramic windows giving superb views across the Firth of Forth to Fife, and seats outside in the summer. Those with an interest in marine wildlife should bring their binoculars. It has a colourful history, being situated in the 1821 booking office of a pier destroyed by a storm in 1898. Bits of the original pier can still be seen in the bar. The emphasis is on food, which is served all day and includes dishes with traditional Scottish ingredients. WARNING: Table service only inside and all tables can be used/reserved for diners at peak eating times. Sitting or standing at the bar is not permitted but outdoor tables may be used with service via a window and the beer in plastic tumblers.
