Malt & Hops – Edinburgh’s Best Beer Pub

If you’re a beer lover and especially if you’re a real ale lover, then look no further than one of Edinburgh’s best beer pubs, the Malt and Hops.

You’ve never seen so many beers – the bar is lined from one end to the other with taps of lagers, ales, cider, and everything in between.    There’s a massive wine list as well as plenty of of whiskies as well as liquers.

The ambience is lovely – it’s located in The Shore, a Leith hot-spot and a great mix of locals and city centre dwellers.

The Malt and Hops is dog-friendly (on a lead) and is the perfect end to a stroll on the Water of Leith, one of Edinburgh’s most romantic spots.  It’s also not too far of a stroll from Royal Yacht Britannia, another Edinburgh must-see.

Check it out – bottom’s up!

Book review – London’s best pubs

Yes! I’m banging on about pubs again. I had a couple of very good pints of Elgood’s Black Dog last night, so I’m feeling enthusiastic. And I have a nice review copy of Peter Haydon’s ‘London’s best pubs’ sitting in front of me and whetting my appetite to get...

It’s cask ale week – so drink some beer!

Regular readers will know Boris Johnson doesn’t get my vote. But this week he’s done something I heartily approve of – pulling a pint to celebrate Cask Ale Week. Apparently Brits are really quite ignorant about their national drink (well, the other national drink, besides tea, which...

New Year’s Resolutions – ten top pubs I must visit!

Regular readers of the blog know I like my real ale, and I like a good pub to settle down in for the evening with a friend or two and a few pints of beer. But I am a lazy so-and-so. I have my pubs I love, like the Market Porter in Southwark, and I tend to head straight for them. I’m definitely...
