This is definately one of the favourite hang outs in Edinburgh! And has been since I first went there in 1997! It still works! :)

Pear Tree House has been an Edinburgh institution since it opened as a bar in 1982. Situated close to Edinburgh University, it attracts a mixture of students and local customers, which creates a laid back, cosmopolitan atmosphere.
Draught and bottled beers, a wide range of spirits, liquers and single malt whiskys, cocktails, wine, filled rolls, coffees... The Peartree House has a large beer garden sorrounded by a high stone wall, perfect for summer days and summer nights! Enjoy a cold Hoegaarden in the sun. Order a burger right from the outdoor grill! Watch the BMX'ers swoosh in on their bikes straight to a table..
Pear Tree is always great fun!
