Leith at it’s best, be prepared for a wild night out, with an eclectic mix of customers and maritime paraphernalia alike. My husband and I went here for our first date :-)

Prepare for the ride! This is a true Leith pub. A bit scary at times but good fun.

If you do like your pub re-furbed and fake-themed, then the Port is not for you. On the other hand, if you want a scruffy, traditional howf with friendly punters and quick service, look no further.
Quiet, steady trade through the day, the place starts jumping at 8.00pm, with folks tending to leap on the bar for a an energetic boogie. The decor is organic - like Topsy, it's just 'growed and growded' - colourful and chaotic. It can get very crowded at the weekend.

Sad old pub that needs a scrub, although has a high proportion of scubbers. Also, in North Leith speak this is a place notorious for attracting “sailors”.......sorry for the stereotype but I am quoting locals.
This pub is about to close and change ownership (punch) so if you want to enjoy/savour a real Leith pub, then either wait for Nobles to re-open or go to the Vollie in Leith Walk (been there since the 1800’s- decent boozer without the pretentious 'bohemians’ that infected the port o’leith for the last 25 years

The Port O’Leith is, depending on what you want on a night out, either the best pub in Edinburgh, or one of the worst.
If you want a quiet, sedate place to drink, or one where you might pose in your latest designerwear, then this isn’t the place for you.
However if you want some good old fashioned fun with other people who are up for the same, or you want to engage in some people watching, this is the place.
This pub seems to attract characters from all over Edinburgh, all of whom want to enjoy themselves in this small little pub.
There is a long bar here and the ceiling is covered in flags from all over the world. Seating is pretty limited but you can usually bag a seat if you are quick as people are coming and going all the time.
The pub has a pretty good jukebox which seems to be playing all the time and people will quite happily get up to sing and dance along.
The bar staff are amazing here - you rarely have to wait long to be served and drinks are pretty cheap too.
I happily admit to loving this place and have very fond memories of evenings spent here in the past.
This is a true Edinburgh institution and long may it continue.

A true legend of the Edinburgh pub trade, the Port of Leith is a favourite calling port of mine. It makes a tremendous filling station with its eclectic mix of punters and its bohemian decorations.
There is no furbishings or decorations as such, just a mass of flags and colourful paraphenalia everywhere, making th epub quite rainbowesque. Seriously weird, its well worth a look inside
