#57: Auld Hundred, Rose Street, Edinburgh

Auld Hundred, Rose Street, Edinburgh (exterior)

What seems like an average sized pub from the outside somehow manages to feel small and cozy (or cramped) on the inside. I’m not sure where all the space went, it’s like the opposite of the Tardis. In general though, it’s nice enough, not too modern or swanky and certainly not old or shabby, just a little dark perhaps.

Up the spiral staircase is the restaurant, more like the size I would have expected the downstairs to be. Very odd.

Being part of the Maclay Inns group, this place is in cahoots with Bert’s Bar and the Southsider.

It’s currently run by LT Pub Management, a pub asset management outfit which “specialises in providing a wide range of services for pub companies, pub owners, leisure asset owners, banks and insolvency practitioners.” The rest of this write-up was from back when it was still a Maclay pub.

The Bar

Auld Hundred, Rose Street, Edinburgh (interior, bar)

One cask available, Caledonian Deuchars. On keg there’s Staropramen, Tennent’s Lager, Guinness, Caledonia Best and Magners.

The round was £10.80 for 3 pints of Deuchars, so £3.60 per pint.

Food

The menu looked ok, fairly average pub grub – burgers, fish and chips, chicken balmoral, salmon fillet etc, all from £7 to £10. I’ve eaten here before, but can’t remember much about it. So it wasn’t terrible or I would have remembered.

Russ wanted me to mention that it bugs him that the menus don’t close properly.

Amenities

Pub quiz on a Tuesday night at 8:30. The restaurant area is available for hire during the week. Free wifi.

Castle View

Nope.
