Fodor's Review

Babbity Bowster's is a welcoming pub in an old merchant's house in the heart of the Merchant City. Essentially a pub with rooms, it has simple, no-frills rooms on its second floor. The vibe is friendly, particularly in winter when there is an open fire in the grate. The kitchen serves excellent Scottish food. On Wednesday or Saturday traditional musicians gather for an impromptu session; the rest of the time there is just conversation.
