At the lower end of the gently sloping Leith Walk away from the city centre, this corner pub is easily identifiable through it’s red-brick front, which is an unusual colour for buildings in the capital. This is an ordinary and business-like Wetherspoon with the usual menus, drinks and features and very much caters for the locals in this area of the city. You do find the odd tourist here although their much thinner on the ground than the city centre and those that do pass are often making their way to the docks and the Ocean Terminal to see the Royal Yacht Britannia moored there. The pub is a large open spaced single hall type room that packs the tables in. The bar at the back of the room sports plenty of ale pumps as you’d expect with the regulars alongside a rotating selection.
