Deacon Brodies Tavern

Deacon Brodies is a Royal Mile institution, located close to the castle. The downstairs is a pub and the upstairs a restaurant with good Scottish food. They are well stocked on real ale, and the staff are friendly. The pub is named after a notorious Scotsman, who was a cabinet-maker by day and burglar by night. Go there to taste some good food in a traditional set-up. Don't forget to look up at the beautifully done thistle and rose motif ceilings.

    In Edinburgh everything is huge, also beers are huge, that's why the bartenders sometimes look weird when ordering a small size beer.

  • Horrible treatment from 'Manageress' We went into this pub and asked the lady behind the bar what beers she had- she listed off a very impressive amount of beers so unknowingly we said 'but what about on draft?' and she said 'THAT IS DRAFT' in the rudest tone. So we ordered a Stella and she gave it to my husband. I then asked if she had red wine and she said yes I asked whether they were small bottles or big ones and found out that they had large ones only so being a very frequent wine drinker i asked if they had been opened long as wine tends to go off if it is left open for a day or so, She said 'WINE DOES NOT GO OFF AND HOW WOULD I KNOW HOW OLD THEY ARE SINCE I JUST GOT HERE AN HOUR AGO!' I said well can I try one - She said NO! WE DONT DO SAMPLES' I asked if I bought some wine and it had turned could i get it changed and she said NO! So I just said ok I will take a glass of Rioja thanks. SHE THEN PROCEEDED TO SNAP THE GLASS OF BEER OFF MY HUSBAND AND TELL US THAT WE HAD A PROBLEM AND THAT WE NEEDED TO LEAVE! I COULDNT BELIEVE IT. SHE CAME AROUND THE BAR AND STARTED TO PUSH MY HUSBAND OUT OF THE PUB - PHYSICALLY - HE WAS NOT HAPPY THAT SHE WAS TOUCHING HIM SO HE SAID SO - SHE PUSHED US TOWARDS THE DOOR AND TOLD US TO GET OUT. We asked to speak to the manager and she said she was the manager(not sure if I believe that) She would not tell us her name either!! I have never been so disprepected in my life. We had come to Edinburgh for the Rugby International between Scotland and Ireland and had been having a great time exploring Edinburgh. This totally put a dampner on our holiday and I am going to write to the company personally. I would NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE !
