Cumberland Bar, 1-3 Cumberland Street, Edinburgh -Feb 2011

Tucked away in the New Town The Cumberland Arms has a variety of areas to suit the mood.  A large backroom with a real fire, snug area as well as seperate side room.

Interesting architectural styles throughout to entertain instead of the sport playing tv’s.

Real ales available as well as a good selection of whisky.

1/2 Byker Light and 1/2 Hayes (manchester ale) £2.85.
Steps into bar, toilets downstairs (disabled on ground floor), beer garden outside.


Will venture back again.
