The pub down the road at Blackhall was the House O' Hill Roadhouse, also called the Bolt Hole and Henry's.

Well done ?

Add Spiers Bar to the list. Apparently taken over by Montpelier lot, whoever they are.

Wasn't one I went in no big deal to me but was one of the few "boozers" left in that area.

Mind that's me judging it by clientele rather than actually using the place

Have we really reached page 7 and no mention of The Rainbow?

 

First pint was in the Cottar’s Howff on Rose Street.  It was near the back of Jenner’s if memory serves.

My old man will be spinning in his grave. Always a good working man's pub with the standard bookies next door.

Cottars Howff was opposite Ladbrokes in Rose Street, just off Hanover Street.  There was Milnes on Hanover Street (down the wee stairs) and they took over the Cottars so, as you know, Milnes have an entrance on Rose Street too.

 

I think you went downstairs to enter the CH back then.

Haymarket Bar and Haymarket Station Bar were previous names for the Caledonian Ale House

 

Cotters Howf was also the Bon Accord at one time.

I loved The Rainbow when I stayed in Corstorphine in the early 90’s. The manager was ex-Hearts man Dave something. Even the McEwans Lager tasted good!

The Hunter's Tryst is still there. Bit of a soulless place these days though.

I think it's getting made into flats. 

Was a bit of a mental place in the end. 

Lassie that had it now has old Minders. Not sure what it's called. I'm advised it's best avoided.

I believe the Robin's Nest was changed in the last few years. Bar and lounge switched places. Not been in to confirm or critique but might pay a visit the next time I play Liberton GC.

Never knew. As I said it was someone telling me so wasn't sure on all it's accuracy but the Libby ended up quite mental.

The old Minders is a Hibs casual place I was told. Might be way off the mark though as it's all just stuff being passed on.

Drove along Causewayside other week and noticed The Victoria was getting gutted. 

I don't think I have ever been in it tbh but looked like a proper old style boozer.
