The Waverley Bar is located off the High Street, where it turns into the Canongate. As the name of the bar suggests it is a minute's walk from Waverley Station.

Established since the Fifties as a prominent venue for rising stars in the folk world, with decor that looks unchanged since the 1920s, this quiet, old man's curio is a place where you feel like you are slipping back in time.

The Guid Crack Club meet here once a month to spin yarns (all welcome).
