#124: Hectors, Deanhaugh Street, Edinburgh

Hectors, Deanhaugh Street, Edinburgh (exterior)

Hectors is a deceptively large and somewhat trendy bar in Stockbridge. The front half is more open with big full height windows looking out onto the street, and through the back it’s a bit more compact and dark, with the odd alcove.

Due to some miscommunication we didn’t really stick around long enough to properly appreciate the place. It was a bit quiet, but it was a Tuesday evening, so not too surprising. In the past it’s proved to be good fun on a Friday after work, fairly busy.

It’s a stand-alone Mitchells and Butlers pub, not part of any particular sub-franchise.

The Bar

Food

It’s slightly posh-ish variations on pub classics. Mains hover around the £10 mark mostly. The wife and I have been known to trek across town just for the Eggs Benedict from the Sunday Brunch menu. I seem to remember the fish and chips being pretty good, but that was a few years ago.

Castle View

Nope.
