Saturday in Kays Bar, Edinburgh, Scotland UK

Saturday in Kays Bar, Edinburgh, Scotland UK
One of my favourite watering holes in Edinburgh New Town, only 10-15 mins walk from Princes St area. Its well worth a walk for a great range of real ales and whiskies. I have spent a good few hours in there with my good friend Stephen Buchan. A chap who appreciates a real ale or two.

Originally a Georgian coach house, in the early Victorian era the building was remodelled into John Kay and Sons, Wines and spirits Merchants. Sympathetically modified in the 1970's the bar hosts a plethora of original Victorian features. its a bit like going back in time, reminds me a little of Mulligans in Dublin. Shame no one has written a novel covering a single drunken day around Edinburgh yet. If so, this pub should surely be in it.

Usually available are Budvar, Leffe, Budvar Dark, Innis & Gunn, Furstenberg Frei, Corona, Magners, Becks, crabbies, Draught Guinness, Strongbow, fizzy Fosters & Kronenburg.

I have never eaten there, but they do mince/haggis neeps and tatties £4.10, Scotch pie beans and chips for under £4. More up market herring salad just over a fiver.

Kays, 39 Jamaica Street Edinburgh, Midlothian EH3 6HF - Telephone 0131 225 1858.
Note no Children allowed in bar at any time.
