The Bar Fly came about in 2013 as these are exciting times for Edinburgh drinkers. With several new pubs opening or undergoing extensive re-fits, added to the many well-loved and well-known hostelries that already exist in Scotland’s capital, there is now an excellent choice for the city’s pub-goers.
I’m a keen pub goer and real ale fan. I’m not particularly knowledgeable about real ale but know when I like something and when I don’t. For me, going to the pub is about going to the pub. These are havens to meet and converse, to socialise and enjoy life.
I’ll be using The Bar Fly to chart the changing scene in Edinburgh, bringing you news and reviews, comment and opinion. I’ll also blog about pubs I stumble upon on my travels as well. I’m not out to rate pubs on a scale of one to 10 or find the best pub in Edinburgh but I hope you’ll find the information on here useful and entertaining.
