The Doric Edinburgh

Photograph and information about the Doric Tavern on Market Street in Edinburgh a 17th Century bar and restaurant

The Doric Tavern Bar Restaurant Bistro Edinburgh Scotland

Whenever we are in Edinburgh we can't resist a wee drink and meal in The Doric Tavern Bar and Restaurant, primarily because we love everything remotely related to our Dialect! Though of course you will get a fine meal and wide range of drinks, especially guest ales and whisky.

The Doric Bar dates back to the 17th century and part of its charm is the old fashioned building. It can be found on Market Street, just across from the Edinburgh Dungeons.

Dist onyone ken fit wye The Doric Tavern is sae caad fin it is in Edinburgh an locals are noo blessed wi spikkin oor dialect?

Could it be from the Greek Doric columns that decorate the outside and can still be seen in The Hebrides pub next door which may have been part of the original building?
