Bernard St,Leith,Edinburgh…One of the Oldest Unaltered Public Bar’s in Leith……
This very small fronted pub dates back to 1785. The front room is so small that the bar takes up most of the room! To one side of the bar is a tiny nook where, it is reputed,‘ladies of the night’ would sit and await customers"The Tulip Room".
The bar itself is well stocked with a good choice of ales, whiskies and wines. Homemade food is cooked in a tiny kitchen at lunchtimes and there is a self serve breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays. There is a lovely stone walled back room with booths and tables. Live music is held in this back room once a week. The pub has a very friendly atmosphere and attracts all types of clientele……
The Bar you see on the right (Carriers Quarters) is one of the oldest unaltered Bars in Leith,I had the pleasure of working there for a wee whiley…………It’’s a small bar but with a room at the back they named The Carriers Cove ,still in its original state, of stone walls and roaring coal fire,it was so cosy in the winter.It lies within the heart of Leith and just down the road following the light is the Shore with four Bridges and quite a few other Bars and Restaurants,then heading out along the same road it will take you along the coast line towards the Forth Rail Bridge and Forth Road Bridge……….Leith Links is not far from the Bar ,and is said to have been the place where the first game of Golf was played…….I feel quite Lucky sometimes when I look around me and where I live,Edinburgh is a spectacular City,to look out your window and be looking at a Volcano is amazing but then add a Castle on top of the Volcano ,the Image becomes Magical……………………………..
