Thomsons Bar

01 / Welcome

Here at Thomson's Bar, it's about
the pints, the pies and the banter!

Thomson's Bar is a haven for real ale aficionados and malt whisky fans alike. With original oak timber detailing, the bar is beautifully designed in the style of celebrated Scottish architect, Alexander 'Greek' Thomson, and the staff aren't too bad looking themselves!

Thomson's is famed throughout the city for its real ale selection, with staff happily taking the time to recommend a few favourites. If all that chat gives you an appetite, be sure and sample one of our famous steak pies, although you'll need to get your order in quick, as they are the stuff of legend round these parts!

Great little pub with wood panelling, mirrors and old posters of brews present and long gone. Staff were very friendly and the beers, mainly from Scottish micros, very well kept.

What's on at Thomsons Bar

Thomson’s Battle of the Brewers

Starting Friday the 28th of February, we will be hosting a wee battle of the brewers between DarkStar Brewery of Brighton, Oakham Ales of Peterborough and Fyne Ales of Loch Fyne. Each brewery will be represented by a light hoppy session ale and a slightly stronger pale ale. Keep up to date with the beers that are going to be on through our facebook and twitter feeds!


Tap Takeover

Last year’s visit from Oakham Ales will be a hard act to follow.  Watch this space for our next brewer event.

Check out our Facebook page for what’s pouring each day.
