The Ventoux

2 Brougham St, Edinburgh EH3 9JH, UK


The Ventoux is a rare thing in Edinburgh; it’s a pub. It’s not a real ale pub, or a cocktail bar, or a gastropub. It’s just a pub. It doesn’t have a kitchen, or a TV, or a range of artisan bar snacks. It doesn’t even have a Twitter feed or Instagram. It does have a theme of sorts, which, like it’s sister, The Tourmalet in Leith, is borne of owner Murray McKean’s obsession with the Tour de France, so there’s loads of cycling memorabilia and bikes all over the place, but despite this it’s no MAMIL hangout nor a fixie-geeks den. And despite the excellent selection of bottled German beer, it’s not a German beer pub. What The Ventoux is, is simply a pub, a pub that knows that you don’t need to try too hard to have a good time.
