This place has a fascinating distinctiveness that sets it apart from the rest before you’ve even sipped a drink. Previously known as The Grand Bar, and coined The Bailie in 1971 it’s been a popular local watering hole for over 140 years. The space has been functioning as a bar since the 1870s, and was very much a working man’s hangout – as were most of the pubs in the local Stockbridge area. The owners even admit there’s still a selection of regulars propping up the large island bar who first started back in the 60s, that’s dedication for you.
This place has regular guest cask ales on offer from a variety of breweries, but mainly Scottish permanent resident the Flying Scotsman is certainly one to be sampled, as is the food. Laid back pub grub but on a whole new level, the IPA battered fish and chips was delicious! The menu changes with the season, keeping your experience as fresh as those Scottish ales. For friendly service, brilliant atmosphere, cracking food and of course the ale … this is the place we recommend.
