Ghillie Dhu

2, Rutland Place, Edinburgh EH1 2AD, UK


As one of capital’s best-known weekly ceilidh spots, Ghillie Dhu has built up a reputation for its bustling ambience and buoyant atmosphere, made all the more appealing by a strong focus on live music and traditional Scottish food and drink. The menu features Scottish pub staples, from haggis, neeps and tatties to indulgent pies, while the more lavish additions such as braised Orkney beef cheek are not out of place and give a fuller picture of what the restaurant has to offer. Visit on a Friday or Saturday evening for the full-on Scots experience, expecting your heart, soul (and stomach) to be well and truly filled. But it’s not just a tourist hotspot; Ghillie Dhu’s relaxed and rustic décor, extensive drinks list, and private booths behind the bar area cater perfectly to after-work drinks or informal catch-ups as well as weekend nights out.
