Deacon Brodie’s Tavern, Edinburgh

Twenty years ago, I stopped in to this tavern for lunch and decided to head back for old time’s sake. Things have been updated, but the food is still good, the service friendly, and you can certainly enjoy the atmosphere. Here’s a look at the upstairs dining area:

You’ll find the menu chock full of pub favorites. The pair that I sampled were delicious and very filling, just the thing to fortify you for a visit to the castle or a long walk up and down the hills of Edinburgh. Here’s a look at the cottage pie with vegetables, crunchy slaw, and little side salad:

Another pub staple is the sausage with mash. Here it is as served at Deacon Brodie’s:

Naturally, there is a wide selection of beer on tap and in the bottle. Tried this one:

The corner tavern is located close to Edinburgh Castle, surrounded by tourist shops. As mentioned above, you’ll enjoy a hearty meal here with good service. So give it a try if you’re in the area.
