#1. The Queens Arms, 49 Frederick Street, Edinburgh
Not intended to be the first, but it was Friday after work and England was playing Bulgaria. After aborted attempts to get a spot at The Standard, then Kays, we stumbled upon The Queens Arms. Surprisingly good, with a quirky atmosphere. We loved the eclectic mix of books on the walls (e.g., Time Out Scotland next to Parasitology). It looked to have a great selection of real cask ales on tap, though I opted for a Belhaven's Best, a delicious cream ale brewed here in
Edinburgh Dunbar, Scotland.
