About Us
WiFi - Pintware

The Jolly Judge sits at the foot of a vennel, at the centre of one of Edinburgh's historic Old Town, a mere 2 minutes walk from the Castle.

Low beamed ceilings, log fire and a tranquil atmosphere, this is Scottish hospitality at its best. Sample the wide range of malt whiskies, real ales and tempting bar lunches.

What is unique about the Jolly Judge is hard to define, but I don't think I have ever been in a pub quite like it.

It might be the relaxed atmosphere, the lack of music or the fact that it is a place where people just come to chat, catch up with friends or use as a base before discovering the many other attractions of Scotland's Capital.

Drop in and sample the range of drinks, or a light lunch. Check out the Products page for details of the beers, wines and whiskies on offer. The list will be added to (fairly) regularly.

The Judge's Verdict

Why not select from one of our many malt whiskies while your in?

Caol Ila - one of my personal favourites.
