#135: The Jolly Judge, James Court, Edinburgh

The Jolly Judge, James Court, Edinburgh (exterior)

The Jolly Judge is down a close just off the Royal Mile. It’s a cosy wee pub with a low, beamed ceiling, exposed stonework, tartan carpets, a few old paintings and contemporary mirrors.

This Tuesday night was reasonably busy, but there were still one or two tables up for grabs. There was a range of age groups, from late twenties an up to probably sixties, and a few locals sitting at the bar. The atmosphere was welcoming. It can get extremely busy on weekends.

Please excuse the terseness off this post, there are now 39 pubs and bars on the backlog, I’ve just got to get through them.

The Bar
