A small but cosy pub right on The Shore, Malt and Hops has a great range of draught beers and ales. There is a real fire, which is usually roaring on colder nights, although you might struggle to get a seat near it. The window seats are good for watching the world go by and the staff are friendly. If it’s busy there’s not many places to stand but if you go during the week or early on weekends you can usually get a seat, if not a table. The seats could be comfier but all in all a decent wee pub.
Lovely wee bar on the Shore in Leith. Great atmosphere and friendly service. My pal’s into his ales and reports a good and varied selection of guest ales here. The decor is busy with badges, currency from all over the world and lots of breweriana on display.
If the weather’s good you can sit outside and watch the world go by.
A toasty fireplace, an informal atmosphere, non-trendy and non-corporate regulars, genuine service....just what The Shore, a fashionable district in Leith, needs so as not to forget its roots and provide drinkers with a genuine choice locally.
The Malt & Hops fits the role of Shore saviour quite well: it offers a simple, old fashioned experience for those who prefer a real ale to a rasperry vodka. This isn't to say there's only 3 pints on and a dying dog in the corner though- it's a neat and attractive pub which caters to all those who enter. There's a good range of cider and foreign beers which acknowledges modern drinking, but yet doesn't clash with the emphasis on whisky, painted mirrors and bookshelves.
