Rose Street Brewery is situated on Rose Street and stands in Edinburgh’s New Town, which was built when a competition was held back in 1766. The challenge went out to architects; “Let us boldly enlarge Edinburgh to the utmost.” It was won by a 23-year-old named James Craig.
The area has a long and interesting history. Thistle Street and Rose Street were built originally for the artisans of the New Town, although in an inferior style and of rougher workmanship than the main streets. But by the mid 1800s, Rose Street had established itself as a drinking oasis and this reputation is proudly upheld today.
Our breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus offer everything you’d expect to find on any respectable, British pub menu, and so much more besides. Boasting an array of delicious sharers, through to classic main dishes, and succulent burgers, there’s a selection to suit every appetite.
Rose Street Brewery is one of many rare gems in the Nicholson's collection of iconic and great British pubs — held in the highest of regards for their distinctive buildings, intriguing history and vibrant atmosphere.
