Steeped with a sophisticated atmosphere and homely vibe, this tavern draws people in from all around. Named after the famous Deacon Brodie in 1806, this tavern captures the dualistic nature which Robert Louis Stevenson portrays in his famous book, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Brodie was a respectable businessman during the day and a burglar at night in the late 18th century. The tavern separates its quiet dining from the bar. If looking for a quiet evening and a nice dinner head upstairs to the restaurant area. Make sure to get there early or make a reservation.
If wanting a livelier atmosphere with some drinks and appetizers, downstairs is the place to be. Here, people can try cheese covered mushrooms for about £5.25. Add a pint of lager and you’ll have an enjoyable time with friends. They also serve small portions of onion rings and the traditional haggis. From about 4 pm on weekdays and most weekends the tavern is quite busy. For a good dining experience, try to arrive early in the day.
