The Bailie Bar

A traditional old friend, full of character, warm and inviting – like your local should be.

Situated on the corner of St Stephens Street, this warm and welcoming public house has been playing host to locals, regulars, visitors and new comers come rain or shine, 364 days of the year for over two decades. Never straying far from its grass roots philosophy ‘like your local should be’, The Bailie is a perfect marriage of delicious food and drink served in a quintessentially local way. It is fair to say, there are few basement bars with the enviable reputation and subtle atmospheric charms of the Bailie with its open fire, scheduled live music, live screened sports and delectable traditional Scottish Food. Couple this with the engaging repartee of our friendly landlord, wide selection of draft taps, rotating cask ales, malt whiskies, wines, premium spirits and a range of teas, coffees and soft drinks available, there is perhaps no better place to hang you hat, pull up a pew, and enjoy a drink and some food in The Bailie Bar, Stockbridge.
