Greyfriars Bobby’s Bar sits at the top of Candlemaker Row, just in front of Greyfriar’s Graveyard, Edinburgh’s notorious spooky (and literary) hotspot.
Situated cheek by furry jowl with one of the city’s best loved hairy folk heroes, the statue of Greyfriars Bobby, the pub is a perfect place to relax with live music, real ale, and good beer.
The pub is popular with tourists but is also a regular hangout for some of Edinburgh’s ghost tour guides. Get chatting to the right person and you might be in for a night of some of the best storytelling of your life.
