Located on the historical George IV Bridge in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town, George IV Bar is a traditional Scottish public house bursting with charm and character.
Open every day from 11am, serving a wide range of premium drinks, cocktails and craft ales. Sourcing seasonal, local ingredients and preparing fresh to order, our menu is an array of mouth-watering dishes, classic ‘pub grub’ with a twist.
George IV Bridge is an elevated street located on the top layer of the maze that makes up Edinburgh’s Old Town. Home to several of the city’s important public buildings, the bridge was constructed in 1829 and named after King George IV. Designed by architect Thomas Hamilton to connect the South Side district of Edinburgh to the New Town. The bar sits in the middle of the street, where the bridge crosses over the historic Cowgate, alongside the National Library of Scotland and opposite the Edinburgh Central Library. At the southern end of the street is the junction with Candlemaker Row, where the famous statue of Greyfriars Bobby, is situated.
The bar can be booked exclusively for large parties with several areas that would lend themselves to smaller groups. From informal lunches and pub quiz’ to Whisky/Gin tastings and Cocktail masterclasses, we can cater for a whole range of different events. There are AV screens and integrated sound system throughout with all major sporting events shown and live music from Thursday to Sunday at 10pm.
We welcome the opportunity to meet you and create a package specifically for your group. If you would like to come have a look around and see for yourself, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
