Edinburgh is famous for its hidden treasures and Kay’s Bar, tucked away off India Street, is one such place. A former wine merchant’s named after original proprietor John Kay, this cosy little hideaway is filled with curiosities from bygone times. The bar boasts an extensive collection of cask ales sourced from around the UK, with seven regularly changing guest ales available. To accompany your ale, there’s a flavoursome and affordable lunchtime menu. We sampled a delicious and hearty portion of haggis, neeps and tatties, and a traditional steak pie, filled with generous chunks of beautifully tender beef. Not every offering is Scottish however; there’s also a fiery chilli con carne and a daily homemade curry. Kay’s is the perfect place to lose yourself for a few hours with a delicious pint of ale and top-notch, hearty food.
