The Advocate...see for yourself...

For a pub rubbing shoulders with some ancient architecture, there's something of an enigma about The Advocate. In the heart of Edinburgh's old town, the pub soon gives clues that it wasn't always a drinking establishment. Rumour has it that it was historically a hardware shop or printers, with the pub opening its doors sometime in the nineties.

Many years on, the pub has moved with the times to offer visitors a modern yet-down-to-earth experience. Whether it's a quiet night reading the paper or a more raucous occasion watching live rugby, The Advocate can transform itself.
