Foresters Guild, formerly the Foresters Arms reopened it’s doors in March 2014. The newly renovated venue has a reshuffled bar, introduced an evolving food menu and a little more than just a lick of paint however none of the history has been lost in this development.


From the map of the town adorning the ceiling, to the menus made from original floorboards, Foresters Guild is steeped in stories.



The bar area, where dogs are welcome, boasts 18 taps including four rotational cask ales. Foresters Guild is dedicated to providing the best of local and international real ale and regularly introduces new breweries and beers to the range. Some of the handpicked suppliers include Inveralmond, Knops, Williams Bros., Harviestoun, Isle of Skye Brewing, Orkney Brewry, Alchemy, Broughton Ales, Stewart Brewing and Fyne Ales.

The fridges and shelved selection is constantly being updated so that you’re bound to find that tipple that tickles you. With coffees served until late, we cater for everyone’s needs.

The newly added restaurant serves until 8.30pm, Sunday to Thursday, and 9.30pm, Friday and Saturday, and serves a blend of good Scottish home cooking and fine dining cuisine. All meats and fish are sourced from Edinburgh and the local surrounding areas, and the menu is ever evolving seasonally.

Taste the food that everyone in Portobello is talking about.

Open all year round with full table service until 5pm (depending on business) the all weather beach huts means you can dine outside whatever the weather.
