We’re well into spring and summer is just around the corner – it’s only a matter of time until the sun comes out.

And after hard day or week at work, sometimes all we want to do is to throw on the shades, meet up with a couple of pals and soak up the rays over an ice cold beer.

To help you out, we recently published our guide to Edinburgh’s best beer gardens, which you can read here. There’s plenty of choice across the capital, including sun traps in the city centre and casual drinking spots by the shore.

And one of the bars to make our list has just been deemed one of the very best in the UK. The Week Magazine just published their 13 of UK’s best beer gardens roundup, with inclusions from across the country including Cornwall, The Lake District, London and Glasgow.

Their writers rank the capital’s Cold Town House, which won Beer Bar of the Year 2021, in a lofty fifth place, deeming it the best beer garden in Scotland.

Commenting on the Calton Hill bar, which boasts stunning castle views, gondola and ski lift seats, The Week said: “Calton Hill Brewery was the first in Britain to brew lager and Edinburgh ’s Cold Town House was named after the famed Grassmarket destination.

“Opening in 2019, this outpost – which was previously a church – has already made a name for itself with its mission to make beer accessible for all.

“Another unique feature of this outdoor space is its vintage Nissan van where you can order drams directly to your table.”
