A Traditional Scottish Pub at the Heart of Edinburgh's New Town

Welcome to the Thistle Street Bar, our traditional Scottish pub in the oldest street at the heart of Edinburgh’s New Town. Here you’ll find the best that Scotland has to offer, from our draught beers and lagers and extensive whisky and gin selection.   

Grab a drink and enjoy a bit of banter with the regulars and our friendly bar team; or just relax and soak up the atmosphere of a real Scottish pub where everyone is made to feel at home…even the dug!

COVID-19 Temporary Closure

Dear Customers

You will be aware that bars and restaurants have, quite rightly,  been ordered to close during the COVID-19 pandemic. We at the Thistle Street Bar took the decision to close 24 hours BEFORE the official announcement by the UK Prime Minister and Scotland’s own First Minister as we believe that the health of our customers and bar team comes before the need to make money.

This is a difficult time for everyone and the temporary closure of our bar is nothing compared to what others may be going through. However, we are overwhelmed by the support we’ve had and would like to thank everyone for taking the time to wish us well.

Stay tuned to our website or follow us on Facebook or Instagram for updates on when we plan to reopen and if you have any questions please email me on welcome@thistlestreetbar.com and I will respond as quickly as I can.

In the meantime, please stay at home to support our NHS frontline workers and to keep your family safe.

Kind regards
Robert Shepherd
Thistle Street Bar
