About the Pub
  My name is Glen and I took over the food franchise at the Theatre Royal Bar in Greenside Place (yes I'm the chef) about 12 months ago; life here has changed somewhat, I would say that 98% of all the food is freshly made on the premises as we make all our own desserts including ice-cream and sorbets, we also make our own Irish soda bread, all meats and fish are prepared fresh on the premises as I buy my fish directly from the fish market and not from a mass produced frozen food company. In fact nothing comes in here frozen and companies like Brake Bros are barred from the premises as I believe in freshly cooked food. My background is 25 years in 4 and 5 star hotels and luxury country house hotels with fine dining, now I'm not saying that we are the best bar in Edinburgh, most definitely not....but we do try very hard....you will have to wait up to 20 on a main course but like any other restaurant that you might go to for freshly prepared food if you don't order a starter then yes you will have to wait....nothing goes "Ding" here at the Theatre Royal.

The Theatre Royal is a large bar just a few doors down from the Edinburgh Playhouse. During the warmer weather the front windows are opened to the tables on the main busy street. There is a large square bar in the centre of the main room and a large room to the rear with booth tables and a fire. This is a popular bar early evening before 'curtain up' and it is not unknown to spot a character or two from the theatre cast.

Enjoyable
Very enjoyable bar, staff extremly attentive and caring. The selection of beer was not the best but was made up by the wide selection of whiskey. Great food, great fun.
Would be a very nice local.

v
big tables - poor beer
Busy bar - difficult tio get served. Big tables for large groups - beer expensive and of variable quality. Theatre trade keeps the place going - great promise fauls to deliver.
