Boozers in Gorgie - My take on it.

Recommended Posts

chester copperpot
It's actually cracking steak pies and a decent pint. Oh and forget about the sample rooms since they went wine bar.

 

 

 

Think Im barred from Diggers after the last KB night out in May.

 

Had a bit too much vino at the derby day hospitality.

The way you're going your match day local will be anywhere outside a 3 mile radius of Tynie.:confused:

Decided to take a wee tour of gorgie last night to see what was the best boozer in Gorgie.

 

Westfields - Rubbish, I've been going there for years now, but its lost something.

 

Station Bar - Too quiet.

 

Strattie's - Good atmosphere, great laugh, rubbish pints though.

 

Robbo's - Magic. Fair enough there was a fair bit trouble and some guy tried to punch my mate, but apart from that the place was rocking. Met S.U.S.S last night who's cool as feck. Almost got knocked out myself for asking everyone in the place if they were The BoomTownRat.

 

Merchie Hearts - Cheap bevvy, plenty o slappers, I loved it.

 

So all in all, I think Robbo's could be getting visited from now on. I even met Drylaw Hearts who was smiling for a change:).

 

 

What was the bother in Robbos?

Hehe, I guess.

 

Liked Diggers as well, but cant see Auld Jock inviting me in with open arms anytime soon.

 

Westfields was great, but too many Hibee's serving behind the bar these days, its lost its charm since the hot Landlady left.

 

She's now at Robbo's though :)

Just a couple of wee skirmishes, and some lad accusing one of my mates of throwing a punch at his mate, but he was steaming and completely wrong.

Jock is a Merchie man through and through, his Diggers visits are pretty rare these days.

Good stuff. The next big one is against the Huns I think. Think the whole of Gorgie was wrecked on Saturday, even the Ardmillan was getting boisterous! Robbos was like a train wreck when I popped in for a quick Jack D, everyone destroyed, broken glass everywhere, folk walking about with their tops off. Magic.

Was probably about as popular as my trash talk at the poker table at the Casino at 3am after going to subway! 15 hour sessions are not only big, they are clever too.

I was lucky enough to have Ih8 on his knees in Stratties doorway singing to me!!!!

Robbo's was fun apart from the guy chatting to me getting a headbutt! Dunno why it happened but the whole place was rocking!

 

My liver is having a rest for a few weeks after the 15 hours on the lash, should try to remember I'm half the size of all the boys I drink with.

fairly regular in the diggers post match - enjoy the good beer and generally good atmosphere. although they seem to be getting even fussier about singing. You'd think you could have a wee sing song in a hearts pub after a derby win without the staff growling at you?

 

Still my favourite place for a drink on match day though :) Maybe it's something to do with my liking of prawn sandwiches.

The only time I've been in Robbos was a non-match Saturday night. The 2 females having a serious fight in the middle led me to question its class. We left after 1 pint. :P

I like Ardmillan pre match and Tynie arms after (when get the chance). Got to go to Tynie arms before and after derby game as my son wasnt down for game. Do miss not getting to go in regularly but thats the way it goes. Robbos for me is only if well drunk and not being able to think properly. never been in the merchie club.

Was in Robbos pre match. As much as i love the atmosphere and the fact that i know 1/2 the boozer the place is a bit of a nightmare, in having to queue 4 deep at the bar and it being completely understaffed, plus its 8000degrees celcius!

 

They also ran out of pint glasses so it was bottles only!

 

Its got its faults, but still love it. Drank there since i was 15.... :)

Of the ones I've frequented...

 

The Polwarth

My old local and the final stop on the cup winning bevvy train. Never been in pre-match, but it's decent for a bit later on after a game and to watch a match if you can't attend.

 

Golden Rule

First stop once back in Edinburgh after Prague. Great boozer, although I did once get warned away from there by a bunch of Hibs casuals after a derby who were going to "take it".

 

The Fountain

Just a poor boozer.

 

McGowans

Wannabe Wetherspoons, although you can't knock the cheap Miller.

 

The Orwell

Always busy but not too packed, had many the pre and post match pint in there. Will be sad to see it go.

 

The Ettrick

It's nice and all that, but doesn't feel right on a match day.

 

The Shandon

Not too busy and pool tables. Good for a change.

 

BM

Quality old man haunt.

 

Station Bar

I'm not a fan. It's a craphole without the charm.

 

Stratties

Legendary. Minging to look at but full of character. Scene of many a cup final pint, and a convenient hop, skip and a jump to my old seat in the main stand.

 

Tynie Arms

The quintessential Hearts boozer. Venue for Bordeaux and Basle away. Good memories.

 

Robbos

If you're that way inclined then fine. It has a good party atmosphere etc, but I'm afraid the racism is a bit much for me. And I'm pretty thick skinned.

 

Balmoral

Eurgh.

 

Ardmillan

Much like the Orwell, busy but usually not too bad. Close to the doctor's if you drink too much. Did get glassed here once (shoulder).

 

Dickens

You can always buy Kenny a pint...

Robbos is definately the best boozer to drink in the Gorgie area!!

 

Are you serious? It is a dirty sh*t hole and the bar staff are rude and do not have a clue about working behind a bar. At least in Stratties the staff are efficient and polite. I stopped going to Robbos around 6 months ago as I'd had enough of poor service by rude bar staff.

Robbos, sometimes in the Orwell pre match to meet the old man but made a habit of going into the balmoral on the way home, its not that bad actually. Had quality banter with a bunch of Germans who had traveled over and took in a game.

Always polite and efficient with me. Quite a few new faces behind the bar now as well.
