Welcome to The Last Drop

You will find The Last Drop in Grassmarket Edinburgh within a short stroll of Victoria Street, Cowgate and Candlemaker Row - however you won't find another like it.

Step in to discover a traditional pub of unique character, revered for its eclectic range of real ales and its heartily classic pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

A fascinating past

The Last Drop is a macabre reference to the last hanging in the Grassmarket. Its fair to say we have a suitably spooky heritage as we are allegedly haunted by the spirit of a small girl in medieval clothing. Sightings of our young spirit have been reported in the cellar and in the bar area. Tenements once stood on this site, but these were rebuilt into the pub you see today using the old buildings'original 17th Century stone.

One of a kind

The Last Drop is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of great British pubs, reputed for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.

Famous for a medieval ghost and the last hanging in the Grassmarket
