Thomsons Bar, 18 Morrison Street, Edinburgh – June 2012

Looking to cross off another pub in Edinburgh, we nipped into here for a quick half.  I’m glad we did. Excellent selection of real ale on draught as well as old pictures, mirrors and some excellent wood panelling to keep the eye entertained.  I fancied staying for another but food needs had to be met and other plans.  Definitely one to go back to.

Pies and toasties available, £2.50 for toasties, unsure of pie prices.

 

The Earl of Marchmont Bar, 22 Marchmont Crescent, Edinburgh – June 2012

12/06/2012

Popped in to watch a bit of football whilst waiting to go to a gig.  Good mix of clientele in, menu was well priced and a wide selection (especially for such a small kitchen!).  Beers on tap were Addlestones Cider, Carling, San Miguel, Amstel, Belhaven Best, Guinness, Leffe, Hoegaarten and two real ales.  Good selection of bottled beers too (Innis & Gunn etc).

Noticed the lots of bowls of nachos appearing and empty bowls going back so we ordered a sharing one.

£5.95 for this, which is a bowl and not just a plate,  Kicking jalepenos and lots of cheese.  Well worth it.

Menu can be found here

Friendly staff, sparkling toilets, good nachos, excellent beer selection and nice area.  Quite fancy nipping in again.
