Living around the Royal Mile in Edinburgh I’m spoiled for choice when it comes to pubs and bars – but it’s always a struggle to find one that’s not rammed with tourists. That’s what makes Holyrood 9A perfect.
There are steaks and salads on offer, but there is really only one thing to order – a burger – there are so many different types to try! They come in a brioche bun with stringy fries as standard, or you can opt for my favourite sweet potato fries.
What sets Holyrood 9A apart from a lot of other burger places in town is the range of ever changing beers from all over the world. It’s always overwhelming to try and make a decision as to which to try first!
Their breakfasts are pretty great too, and a good deal for a Scottish breakfast in a pub so close to the Royal Mile. There’s also some healthier options like Granola which I haven’t tried yet – I always opt for the Holyrood breakfast.
During Festival 9A is the perfect location to stop for a sit-down meal after a show at the Pleasance. Sadly more and more people seem to be realising that though so there may be a wait for food!
