About Greyfriars Bobbys Bar
Greyfriars Bobby’s Bar is located in the heart of Scotland’s capital, Edinburgh in Candlemaker Row. As one of the most photographed pubs in Scotland, you’ll find us within a short stroll of Chambers Street, Grassmarket and George IV Bridge.
You’ll find a plethora of Edinburgh’s most iconic attractions near you — including The National Museum of Scotland, Greyfriars Kirkyard, Edinburgh University, and of course the Statue of Greyfriars Bobby.
Occupying the ground floor of a row of Georgian houses, Greyfriars Bobby’s Bar adjoins the historic Candlemakers' Hall, built in 1722. Our name is inspired by an Edinburgh legend of a scruffy Skye terrier called Bobby. When his owner died in 1858, Bobby faithfully watched over his grave and was buried alongside his master in the Greyfriars Kirkyard in 1872.
