Edinburgh Castle Ancoats


Now Open

From the team that brought you Cottonopolis comes a brand new space in the heart of Ancoats. Once an abandoned Victorian haunt, Edinburgh Castle has been revived as a 'proper boozer with a proper pint.’  Interiors aren't the usual, with tattooist Gre Hale designing wallpaper and menus alongside artist Lei-mai's handpainted 24ct gold signs throughout the building.

On the ground floor, you'll find a traditional pub serving classic dishes from pies and fish and chips to game meat. Don't miss the weekend brunch and Sunday roasts, as plates are piled high. Chef Julian Pizer leads the kitchen upstairs, with a 36-cover restaurant that focuses on seasonal British bites and locally-sourced produce. We hear sweetbreads and bees-waxed aged-beef will be making an appearance.

As for the libations, it's all about Irish coffee, Guinness on tap and a stellar selection of whisky and gin. Dining in the restaurant? You lucky things can also soak up specially selected wines and classic cocktails.
