Edinburgh pubs and beer recommendations
63 yrs old and my first trip to scotland next sunday - 4 nights in the capital (maybe one in glasgow) with the wife. would appreciate advice on traditional pubs in central/castle and royal mile areas. we're partial to live music and open mics but the wife says no sports bars please.
beers to look out for? i love real ales and even local keg bitters around 5% but am not a fan of craft ales which i find too hoppy.
ps can you still ask for a 'pint of heavy'?

Ship on the Shore in Leith is very good. Champagne bar and sea food restaurant.

I’d go to a whisky bar and try whiskies.

I spent 4 months working in St Andrews Square in 2012. Thought the City has a bit of a shithole tbh. Always wet and windy. Massively overrated.

Best moment for me was Friday afternoon boarding my 1st Class carriage from Waverley Station to KingsX.

Have a walk down to Leith have a look round there. Few nice traditional boozers, and away from the touristy bit.

Biddy Mulligans in the grass market was decent and its a quality city.

And climbing Arthur's seat shear face at 4am pissed is a must 👌

The Abbotsford is worth a visit if you’re down in the new town. In Rose St just off St Andrews Square. Traditional pub with an island bar and decent beer from memory

Drouthy Neebors is probably my favourite watering hole in Edinburgh.

The owner’s a big WHU fan.

The Waverley Bar is a good old fashioned boozer

They do good PIES.

Billy Connolly started out there, they have live folk music, comedy etc in an upstairs room.

The Wetherspoons by Edinburgh Waverley Station. ( think it's called The Ticket Office) did an absolutely bloody lovely pint of Deuchars IPA when I was in there last year.

Re: Edinburgh pubs and beer recommendations
Guildford Arms for decent real ales. Tucked up an alleyway near Waverley Station. Or the halfway house which is up some long steps on the other side of Waverley. Won't be any music of any kind.
