A friendly neighbourhood bar - you'll find The Southsider just over North Bridge in the south side of Edinburgh city centre, where you can enjoy a great choice of craft & cask beers, wines & spirits, friendly staff and a delicious new menu with some great beer bites & sharing food, thin crust pizza, burgers & hot dogs. We think it's one of the best places to drink in Edinburgh!

Why not pop into the Southsider, Edinburgh, for a coffee or lunch before a day's sightseeing or lectures? Or enjoy a pint watching the footie or catch up in one of our cosy new booths with friends over a bottle of wine...

Student societies and groups often meet up in the Richmond Room (our bookable area). If you are a student society looking for a meeting venue or sponsorship - get in touch!
