Welcome to The Advocate

Those looking for a great night out - yet minus the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh's High Street/Cowgate - would do well to drop into The Advocate. Based on Hunter Square, the pub would appear to be a chameleon: by day, bearing witness to regulars, local professionals & many tourists seeking a lunchtime pint & hale & hearty food ; by night, attracting all walks of life who will enjoy a roomy venue to sup a pint of Belhaven ale or sample the affordable menu. Accommodating a plentiful 206 people, The Advocate offers both vibrant music with Martin Andrews on a Friday night or, for the calmer individual, a laid-back, relaxed atmosphere with Mike Patterson for our Sunday night acoustic music session.

Opening times

Mon - Sun: 11am - 11pm   

Fri/Sat: 11am - 12am     


Food Service Times

Mon - Sun: 12pm - 9pm


Working for Belhaven can be many things to many people – for some it may be a fun job in a stimulating environment with great colleagues, for others it may be more about a career with a respected employer who offers exciting prospects. Whatever you’re looking for, we may have just the role to suit you. All our senior management team have a history of working behind bars long before moving into their current roles and indeed we run a bespoke course to help develop assistant managers into our managers of the future. So why not apply today? It might just be the best move you make!
