    Well done Staggs Bar

    CAMRA pub of the year for Lothians yet again. Gonna need a new wall for all their certificates! To keep it going for so long at such a high standard is pretty impressive. First port of call when I come home next month.

    Cracking pub.

    Does what it does well and doesn't try to be anything it isn't. The kind of pub that is a bit of a dying breed but also the type I'd actively seek out over any other.

    Great boozer. One of the things I miss about living in Musselburgh. Really need to visit next time I'm through, been ages since I've been in. When the Wetherspoons opened at the old Hayweights bingo hall I was worried it would have an impact on Staggs, but that doesn't seem to have been the case.

    Where I had my first pint and the bar has hardly changed since then...A dying breed but great when you find them. Still a few kicking around here where theres no pretentiousness and the owners & staff have a real pride the pint they provide to the punter.

    Great to see it can thrive, as mentioned, in the shadow of a massive Wotherspoons.

    On the subject of CAMRA, is there any sign of the annual beer festival returning in Edinburgh? There's going to be one in Glasgow this year but I think they have trouble getting a venue through here.

    Doesn't look like it https://www.edinburghcamra.org.uk/events/

    Went to the one they used to have in the Assembly Rooms a couple of times. Enjoyed it the times I went. Not sure when they last had one there.

    The Glasgow one is on 16th to 18th June at The Briggait https://glasgowrealalefestival.co.uk/ First one in a few years, obviously, so hopefully will be well attended.

    The Assembly Rooms was a good venue but the events haven't been great since they left there. Chambers Street was a disaster as it was on 3 floors and the Corn Exchange isn't a great location for it, although the venue itself was good.
