Fond memories of Edinburgh’s ‘lost pubs’

THE Hispaniola restaurant on Edinburgh’s Drummond Street is remembered fondly in a series about the city’s ‘lost’ pubs.

The website, EdinburghLive, lists The Hispaniola as the former public bar, Rutherfords, said to have been a favourite haunt of the famous 19th century writer, Robert Louis Stevenson.

Also included in the list is The Volunteer Arms (Leith Walk), Sportsters (by Waverley rail station), Jekyll and Hyde (Hanover Street), Badabing (Port Hamilton), Cargo (Fountainbridge), The Spiders Web (Morrison Street), The Brig (Cramond), Amicus Apple (Frederick Street) and The Elm Bar (Elm Row).
