The Home Of Edinburgh's Largest Nachos! We serve quality pub food in nice big portions. Favourites include our famous nachos, steak & ale pie, and chicken/vegetarian burrito. Lots of our dishes are vegetarian and many are vegan. We are very passionate about ale. We serve Hobgoblin and Bitter & Twisted permanently, and a guest ale from craft breweries such as Cromarty Brewing, Dark Star, Fyne Ale, Magic Rock, Moor and Tiny Rebel. As for malt whisky we sell all the usual favourites with a number of special limited edition and cask strength bottlings. Our jukebox is legendary in Edinburgh for having the best selection of metal, punk and goth music. Bands such as Black Flag, Danzig, Deftones, Mastodon, Nitzer Ebb and Tiger Army make up the soundtrack to a stay in The Auld Hoose. Quiz night is 8pm every Tuesday and we are dog friendly. Oh yeah, students get a 10% discount on all food purchases! Keep up to date with us on Twitter @TheAuldHoose
