    Great Little Pub

    This was a modern pub with the atmosphere of a cosy country pub. Food was great especially for the price. wide selection. Would certainly return.

    Lovely Bar, Lovely Staff

    Staff were welcoming and helpful. Food was unfaultable and the bar itself was really nice although some couches tired and need updating. My friend asked if she could swap the pint of lager for a non-alcoholic Becks, this wasn't allowed as there was a soft drink option. With the new driving/alchol laws we felt it would have been better if the exchange was allowed. Other than that no complaints.

Contemporary bar and grill in Leith

A good-looking hangout, The Constitution Bar is, not surprisingly, on Leith’s Constitution Street. Stripped stone walls, clever lighting and simple, comfy seating give it a contemporary feel. Live music, plenty of sports and a great selection of interesting beers from Scotland and beyond mean that it always has a buzz about it. The outside seating is popular for al fresco beer-supping when the sun is out.

Modern bar menus

Over several different menus, The Constitution Bar offers everything from a full Scottish breakfast to evening meals, Sunday roast lunches and a very keenly priced express lunch offer. Where possible, the kitchen uses ingredients which are grown, reared and landed locally.
Popular dishes include starters such as the ricotta-stuffed chilli peppers and the BBQ ribs. The double cheese and mac has many fans as do lighter options like the sea bass fillet in a garlic and white wine sauce or the super foods salad. Carnivorous diners may prefer the mixed grill or something from the extensive selection of beef and chicken burgers. You may want to leave room for desserts like the sticky toffee pudding or the mango and coconut cheesecake.
