Join us for a truly decadent Christmas

Charming History

The Barony was a wine and spirits merchant from 1896 onwards and in 1955 it became a licensed pub under William Younger and Company.

The devil is most definitely in the detail when you step through our doors. With painted tiles depicting Scottish lochs, the original Victorian bar, curiosities reflecting the era and bare wood flooring that holds the footprints of thousands of guests throughout the decades, it’s a capsule of Edinburgh heritage.

Who will win the World Cup 2022?

One thing that is for sure is that we’ll be showing all of the big games (& highlights) with plenty of beer, plenty of snacks and a good crowd. The drinks will be flowing so be sure to get ahead and book your spot now as we hopefully see it coming home! Surely this time, right?

Restoration & Renovation

Historic and ornate, its been a pleasure restoring The Barony and the history steeped within it.

The Barony bar has been lovingly and painstakingly restored, with original features and furniture being returned to their former glory. You can expect emerald & oxblood leather booths & benches with the deep-button-back finish to them. There’s also lots of timber stools and 1940s re-claimed chairs that keep the authentic feel going.

VIBRANT SCOTTISH CITY

Edinburgh isn’t short of rugged charm, after all, how many cities in the country are bordered by a huge volcano? 'Arthur’s Seat' is the highest peak in Edinburgh’s Holyrood park. The extinct volcano is older than Edinburgh itself and offers panoramic city views from the top.

Understandably, Edinburgh Castle is a national showstopper but to continue the Scottish experience head down the Royal Mile (from the Castle to Holyrood Palace) where you’ll find a whirlwind experience from musicians and magicians to folks dressed as gargoyles blending in with the old architecture.
