Auld Hoose19 Forth Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Built in 1896 and said to be the oldest pub in town, this interesting high-ceilinged and friendly traditional Scottish drinking shop has been tastefully updated. The bar has bare floorboards around a mahogany bar, carpeted areas and a welcoming atmosphere enhanced by a real fire in winter. The gantry has four carved pillars and supports six old numbered whisky casks. The through lounge has varied seating, a pool table and pictures of sporting heroes. It is the closest pub to the Firth of Forth, and supports the RNLI. Sadly, the two windows shown were vandalised and have been replaced by good reproductions.
