Blackthorn _ left this review about Blue Blazer

A traditional street corner pub located just off the popular Leith Road, it consists of two rooms internally and was pretty much full to capacity on our recent Saturday evening visit.

As you enter the pub, the first thing you spot is an attractive mosaic tiled emblem of the pub’s name inset in to the floor with a date of 1889, presumably when it was built. To the left is a large bar counter with barrel ends mounted up above it, and a large selection of miniature whisky bottles. The flooring was very dark wooden boards with cream paintwork, and etched glass panes in the window. A slightly smaller room at the rear was broadly similar in style with deep red paintwork, bench style seating with red cushion padding and a large etched mirror, again with the blue blazer motif. An old fireplace was at the rear, although this did not look to be used, and a few old black and white photographs of the locale were scattered around the walls. An extensive selection of old whisky bottles was on the window sill. A decent 80’s mix of music was playing.

There was a good selection of beers on tap which on this occasion consisted of Franklin’s Blackwater, Pomone Island APA, Cromarty Hit The Lip, Stewart’s Jack Back, Pentland IPA, Anarchy Brew’s Straight Jacket and Top Cat Pale Ale. After that lot, the cider option was distinctly disappointing with just Magners being available. Other than that though, a decent little pub.

The Blue Blazer sits in a building which has been a pub since at least 1880's. The pub is a former title holder of the Edinburgh Pub of the Year and is a very traditional pub. There is a separate area at the back if you want to sit with friends and have a chat away from the bar area. The beers on tap has a choice of Joker IPA £4.90, Harviestoun Bitter & Twisted £4.50, Caesar Augustus IPA £4.70, Holyrood Pale Ale £4.50, Drygate Pilsner £4.70, Magners, Guinness, Pentland IPA £4.00, Edinbrew Blazin’ Good Eepa £3.00. The ale on tap has a choice of Frank Raspberry Beer Keith Beer’s Cousin £3.90, Tonkoko Milk Stout £4.30, Electric Above Clouds IPA £4.30 & farmer Jim’s Strawberry Fields £4.50. There is also a choice of over 50 whiskies and 75 different rums.

Proper old school looking boozer. Etched McEwans Windows, large mosiac on entrance, big mirror with Blue Blazer in the back room. Unusual real ales on - not heard of any but willing to give a Allelic Drift from the Panda Frog Project a go. Well kept.

Worth going.
