Why locals love it

Ideally located next to the King's Theatre, historic Bennet's Bar is a perfect place for pre and post theatre drinks. Not surprisingly regulars include the actors, actresses and theatregoers of the neighbouring King's. It is also a popular pub among sports fans due to rugby screenings.

Why you should visit it

Bennet's Bar is a historic pub with beautiful Victorian interior and wooden carvings. There is a good range of Scottish ales, and you can choose from over 150 single malt scotch whiskies coming from all regions of Scotland. For smoky taste try Laphroaig, or if you don't like smokiness, go for Macallan.

Special tip

Bennet's is a busy place after plays. Make sure you get a seat, arrive before the play in the King's Theatre finishes.
