Pickles – Cosy wine bar

I’m not sure Edinburgh Spotted by Locals needs another recommendation for a wine bar (check the Divino Enoteca, Ecco Vino and Smith & Gertrude articles) but Pickles is so perfect I had to share it.

Located about half way down Broughton Street Pickles always has a lovely cosy, welcoming atmosphere. Inside there are lots of nooks and crannies to settle into and outside there are a few benches to sit if the Scottish sun ever makes one it’s rare appearances!

The bar has a rustic Scottish feel to it. Dark wood, tartan benches, sparkly lights and tightly packed tables all add to the super-cosy feeling.

The main reason to come to Pickles though is the cheese and wine. It’s not the place to go for a meal; the food offerings are essentially just cheese or meat (or mixed) boards. The drinks menu is far more extensive. My favourite is the Pickles combo which combines the boards with a bottle of the house wine or a bottle of house port. A classic and always welcome combination!
