#345. The Royal Dick, 1 Summerhall, Edinburgh

The former Royal Dick School of Veterinary Studies, the Summerhall is now a creative hub for the arts with studio and workshop spaces, and plenty of interesting Fringe venues, bars, and patios.

The Royal Dick bar only had one beer on tap: Barney's Pale Ale, which they claimed was brewed on the premise (but that information is not corroborated by their website)! That was a nice surprise, as I've only ever found Barney's in one other pub.

I liked this place a lot. Reminders of its past are never far from sight. This is the hallway to the toilets.

We also ventured into another part of Summerhall to check out the eclectic art collection and to watch some free cabaret. Here is a look at that bar.
