About The Gallery Bar

An impressively designed open plan café-bar, The Gallery Bar is inspired by Summerhall’s reputation as one of Edinburgh’s leading visual arts destinations.

Located in the old Library of The Royal Dick Vet School, it serves a diverse selection of hand-crafted drinks including Pickering’s Gin and Barney’s Beer, both produced on-site.

Pub Quiz

Summerhall hosts a pub quiz every Monday at 7:30pm, courtesy of Goose’s Quizzes.

On the first Monday of every month, the quiz will be BSL interpreted (thanks to Heriot Watt fourth year interpreseting students) and will take place in The Gallery Bar. All other pub quizzes take place in The Royal Dick.

The quiz is free to enter, with prizes to be won, and usually lasts around 2 hours. Advance booking not required.
