Welcome to Haymarket in Edinburgh

FAMOUS FOR A FOOTBALL TEAM THAT SIGNED UP TO PLAY ON THE FIELD OF WAR

You will find Haymarket in Edinburgh within a short stroll of Haymarket Station, Princes Street and Tynecastle and Murrayfield Stadiums - 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 quality pub food, which are served, as they should be, with a generous measure of famous British hospitality.

A unique city centre pub with a rich history

The Haymarket stands on the crossroads of a changing city. This is where Edinburgh's haymarket used to be held. At the western end of this bustling market square is the city's first railway station that opened in 1842; beyond that is the unmissable chimney stack of a former whisky distillery; and further to the west, Murrayfield, the home of Scottish rugby.

The pub, which is built in a late Georgian to early Victorian style, occupies a sweeping corner spot with a fine view of the world. Directly outside stands the Haymarket Clock, a memorial to the Heart of Midlothian football team of 1914 that signed up en masse to fight in the First World War. They were the first British team to display such patriotic unity - and in a year in which many believed they might win the cup.
