Having the Murrayfield Sports Stadium across the road means The Hampton Hotel is at its liveliest on rugby weekends.

hampton-interiorFans will appreciate the framed rugby shirts over the door, but any time of the week this is a popular bar that enjoys strong support from local residents. It’s a particular favourite with sports fans who use its three television screens to keep up with the major rugby and football fixtures. The pub is also frequented by the Edinburgh Capitals ice hockey team.

‘pop your head inside to have a look at the hand-painted fresco on the ceiling’

With a restaurant to the left and a bar to the right, this former Georgian townhouse is a homely place, warm, welcoming and relaxed, with high ceilings and decorative cornicing. The bar is festooned with beer mats and brewery insignia – a clue that The Hampton Hotel takes its drinking seriously. That’s why, with the guarantee of Belhaven IPA and an ever changing line-up of guest ales, it’s popular with real ale fans. The pub also has a collection of 25 single malt whiskies. If you’re not planning to eat in the restaurant, pop your head inside to have a look at the hand-painted fresco on the ceiling, then settle in for a comfy stay in the hospitable bar.
