Deacon Brodies Tavern

A child friendly pub serving food in Edinburgh.

You will find Deacon Brodies Tavern in Royal Mile Edinburgh within a short stroll of Edinburgh Castle, Waverley Station and George IV Bridge - however you won't find another like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its heartily classic pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

Our tavern is named after William Brodie, one of the inspirations for Robert Louis Stevenson's Jekyll and Hyde. Born in 1741 Brodie was a deacon of the Guild of Wrights. By day, he was a respectable citizen, a member of the town council but by night, he consorted with lowlife; gambling and drinking. His dark side meant he had to take to burglary to pay his gambling debts, leading to his hanging in 1788.

Deacon Brodies Tavern is one of many rare gems in theNicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
