Newest Review: ... as this to me, was a proper Scottish pub. It is always packed with different people, ranging from students to rugby supporters. I agree with the pervious reviewer that it is by far the best pub in the Grassmarket area of Edinburgh. Some of the other pubs in the area are tacky and lack the warmth and down to earth atmosphere of The Last Drop. It is particularly cosy on a cold winter's day. ... more

The Last Drop pub is steeped in history and is a warm, welcoming pub. When I lived in Edinburgh I brought all my visitors to this pub, as this to me, was a proper Scottish pub. It is always packed with different people, ranging from students to rugby supporters. I agree with the pervious reviewer that it is by far the best pub in the Grassmarket area of Edinburgh. Some of the other pubs in the area are tacky and lack the warmth and down to earth atmosphere of The Last Drop. It is particularly cosy on a cold winter's day.

The last review was obviously written by the manager of a rival pub, who has clearly never worked in the Last Drop. It could not have been further from the truth.

The Last Drop has always been well known for it's ... Read the complete review

Before I worked as a member of staff there, I used to go to The Last Drop occasionally with friends. I thought it was average to low-class; an unremarkable place with avergae food and drink. Having worked at The Last Drop I can now say it is the last place I would re-visit. The ginger-haired manager, Jimmy typically bullies staff and customers who he takes a dislike to. He personally made my life hell by constantly criticising and humiliating me with his extremely bigoted and neurotic manner, aided and abetted by his partner. The food and service standards of the Last Drop reflect the style and impact of its autocratic management. There is an ... Read the complete review

The Last Drop pub in Edinburgh's Grassmarket has a very old history. The pub has been there since at least the 18th century and has seen quite a lot of political activity in its time! The unusual name is nothing to do with a lack of alcohol or indeed anything to do with drinking. The name comes from the fact that the hangman's gallows were situated just outside the pub. Hence it was definitely the last drop for a lot of people! There are wall to wall pubs in the Grassmarket, its just one pub after another but what makes a pub stand out? At The Last Drop it's easy to see why. The Last Drop is actually quite large for a Grassmarket pub, some of ... Read the complete review
