The Oxford Bar by Tom Gomez
Clear

This one is for fans of seriously good fiction.

The Oxford Bar on the corner of Young Street and Young Street South Lane in the New Town area of Edinburgh, Scotland.

The name of the bar will be familiar to fans of the Scottish fiction writer Ian Rankin as it is the favoured pub of his Inspector Rebus character in the long running Rebus series of books and and also in the TV series.

In reality of course, the Oxford Bar has long been one of a handful of Edinburgh watering holes favoured by Scottish writers and artists since the 19th century including Ian Rankin himself.
