Relaxed, cosy, old-school gastropub with real ales, a British menu, Sunday roasts and beer garden.- Google
"Beautiful beer garden and a wide range of ales on tap."
"Certainly less annoying than The Pear Tree during the Festival."

Cosy, friendly traditional pub. Beautiful beer garden and a wide range of ales on tap. Slightly off the beaten track, but worth a visit when you're nearby.

The Cumberland Bar is a new town stalwart, with a lovely beer garden in summer. It has a traditional, unspoilt interior with a very high bar festooned with lovely real ale hand pumps. You will see plenty of Edinburgh’s posher wildlife in here, but don’t let that put you off.

The Cumberland is a fantastic all rounder - old school charm of scuffed wood and pub grub meets newer school craft beers and quality ingredients used in said pub grub makes it ideal for pretty much any of your public house based requirements. I've done first dates, lunch with parents, dinner with old friends, late night whisky tastings (with the dog! yes they are super dog friendly), pre-wedding meeting spot, summer evening ciders on the patio, winter night mulled wine by the open fire... The Cumberland is just ace. Go there. (Note the dog did not partake in the whisky tasting!)

Relaxed New Town pub with a good selection of beers and some OK food. If there are sunny days in Edinburgh then the beer garden can be a great place to sit out in until 9pm when you have to move inside.

It seems optimistic to have not just a beer garden, but one covered over entirely by leafy shade, in dour Edinburgh, but The Cumberland Bar has just such a garden. And, in fairness to them, it is awfully lovely, and for those rare days of glorious sunshine we get its the best place to be in Edinburgh, pint of ale or ice-cold Aspalls in hand. The Cumberland is a relaxed, spacious, unpretentious boozer, with the offer of standard pub grub, done well, should you want it. The wood-panelled interior is a pleasing combination of old-worldy-charm but still bright and fresh. They've 8 real ale taps, a wide lager selection, and a well-chosen selection of liquors. It's great for large parties (the back room can be reserved) and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Probably the best beer garden in Edinburgh - small and cute, covered in stone and seats. Certainly less annoying than The Pear Tree during the Festival. A great place for a summer evening's drinking.

One of my favourite places for lunch next to my work, it has the cutest little beer garden which is perfect on a sunny day. The staff are always really friendly and the food is also really nice.

I love bars. I love the atmosphere, the music and the array of brightly coloured cocktails that always give me serious drink envy as they float past. But there are times when it’s not a bar I’m after it’s a pub, and that’s when I take myself off to The Cumberland. Amongst Edinburgh’s oldest pubs The Cumberland is nestled in the New Town. A vibrant establishment with some real characters who are never short of a story to tell, it’s one of those places that everyone in Edinburgh knows about. You’ll not find any cocktails here, but you will find a great range of beers and ales on tap, a fabulous selection of gins and some good wines. Sitting by The Cumberland’s fire in winter with a glass of red wine is one of my favourite things to do. The food at The Cumberland is also really good. The chefs do a mean Sunday lunch, and the rest of the week it’s good old-fashioned pub fare on offer – crab canapés would look out of place here, and quite rightly so. I have a real soft spot for The Cumberland. Maybe now I’ve told you all about the fire in the winter I’ll struggle to get my spot next to the orange glow. I guess I’ll just have to take my chances.
