Fodor's Expert Review Cafe Royal Circle Bar

New Town Fodor's Choice

Famed for its atmospheric Victorian interiors—think ornate stucco, etched mirrors, tiled murals, stained glass, and leather booths—the Cafe Royal Circle Bar has been drawing a cast of Edinburgh characters since it opened in 1863. Regulars and newcomers alike pack in for the drinks (a host of real ales and malt whiskies) and tasty bar food (everything from bar snacks and sandwiches to elaborate seafood platters).
