user reviews of Dalriada, Edinburgh

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Avoid it on a Sunday afternoon for it is little more than a kindergarten for scruffy, self-important parents. Unless that's your scene, hanging about with your bearded husband/bearded wife and bewildered toddlers who run like rabbits around adults who are drinking alcohol.

There's a live music session on the go at the same time which seems to be sponsored by a local brewery yet a bunch of grannies who don't seem to be associated with the musos go around with a pint-glass and expect one to chip in for the musos and are rather miffed if one doesn't. But that's not the problem. The problem is those cheapskate, selfish parents who drag their children in there and sit there and maybe spend a Tenner over three hours whilst nursing their kids until they fall asleep or run amok. But, hey, I guess it lets them know that when they hit the fresh air for the short promenade home that their brats will be ready for a quick feed and then put to bed so the can enjoy their quorn bolognese and a bottle of rancid merlot in peace and quiet - unlike what they visited on the rest of us a few hours previous!

It's not cheap in there, either, and has only two guest ales with the third permanent being the ubiquitos Deuchar's IPS.

One of Edinburgh's best kept secrets. This pub is well worth the trip to the seaside and the ideal destination for a walk along the beach

Took a bus from Edinburgh to Portobello to search this place out. Having walked almost the entire length of the Promenade in the cold and rain I eventually found it....and it was closed. The gates to the grounds were locked but a sign outside said they open at 5pm Mon-Thur, 3pm Friday and Midday at the weekend. It inferred that Summer opening hours may be a little earlier. It's a very impressive building from the outside and at least I got a photo to upload. Combine a visit with Ormelie Tavern nearby.

Another superb pub in the Edinburgh area. A neo-Gothic house right by the sea, this pub has it all - garden by the promenade, excellent food, great beer (3 ales on, Deuchres was excellent and I even enjoyed the Timothy Taylor).

This pub deserves the highest praise in every respect and is highly recommended if you're anywhere near.
