Andrew Usher & Co. South Side, Edinburgh

British, Vegetarian/Vegan, Traditional, Gastro Pub

This Southside cellar bar was once part of the Usher brewing and distilling dynasty. That heritage lives on at Andrew Usher & Co, a bar that brews its own beer and blends its own whiskies. While craft beers are a focus here, the staff are equally as happy to whiz up a cocktail or recommend a bottle of wine to go with the bar food. Students, academic staff and audience members in for a bite before a show at the Festival Theatre can all be found here.
