Christmas at Bellfield Taproom & Beer Garden

If you’re looking for a perfect festive venue for your Christmas party, team drinks or get-together with friends and family, the Bellfield Taproom and Beer Garden has you covered.

We offer an extensive range of drinks including award-winning draught beers brewed in our brewhouse next door; guest beers; carefully selected wines; cocktails; small-batch spirits and soft drinks from small producers. Every week, there’s a Christmas food deal too - from local pop-up food businesses, hand-picked by us.

Driving? No problem…

We have a good range of low and no alcohol beers, mocktails and soft drinks.

Food and Drinks Package: £15 for a welcome drink and a main meal

Our special Christmas Food and Drink Package is available from the 30th November to the 24th of December. We're keeping it simple this year, so simply add to your reservation when making a table booking in the Taproom or covered beer garden.

Our food and drinks package is available for 2 to 60 people (larger groups would be split across Taproom and Beer Garden) and will include a welcome drink* and main course for £15 (sides etc... can be added on the day).  

For 6+ people, Book a Taproom or Covered Beer Garden table or email or phone us on 0131 656 9390 to discuss.  Plus there's a FREE bottle of Prosecco for bookings of 6+ people made before November 20th 2023.

You are of course very welcome to book a table just for drinks. 

*Pint of Bellfield beer, glass of house wine, mulled wine or soft drink 

Big group? Small group? Inside? Outside?

We can offer bookings for large and small groups and we can accommodate you at tables in our cosy Taproom (with a wood-burning stove), in our heated outdoor booths or in our fully covered beer garden (with outdoor heaters and blankets).

If you prefer one long or large table for a group, we can make that work too.

Events - for team nights out, friends and family nights out, or just you and the dog!

We have live music sessions - check our Events Calendar for details, Quiz nights every Wednesday with the legendary Gregor, our quizmaster extraordinaire, wreath making on the 12th of December and Beer School every month – with more events to be confirmed.

We are also running Brewery Tours and Tastings every Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Dogs are welcome

We love dogs and most of us at Bellfield have one. There’s Bruno (Wirehaired Dachshund); Olive (Labradoodle); Frida (Schnoodle); Hester (Border Terrier / Schnauzer) and Ruby (Black Lab / German Wirehaired Pointer). You’ll find water bowls for them to quench their thirst after a long walk in Holyrood Park. 

All we ask is that you please make sure your dog is kept under control and close to your table.

Beer Garden Covered with the Big Orange Tent

Our ‘stretch’ tent is back again and even cosier this year. This covers the whole beer garden including the booths and creates a welcoming, wind and rain-free space for outdoor socialising right through the winter.

Lit with string lights, warmed by outdoor heaters and with cosy blankets available, you’ll be able to enjoy being ‘outdoors’ but warm - and sheltered from the weather.

The Beer Garden is also a perfect party space for parties, events and other gatherings.  For bookings over 6 people please email  or phone us on 0131 656 9390 to discuss.

Always strong supporters of International Women's Day, this year Edinburgh’s renowned Bow Bar has gone the extra mile!

Clara and Lili, two of the female members of the Bow Bar’s team, have brewed their very own bespoke beer in celebration of IWD 2024. They visited Bellfield Brewery on a cold weekend in February, to brew a Belgian Pale Ale that they’ve named “Sweet Dreams Are Made of Yeast”. This 6% ABV pale ale is hoppy and malty in equal measure.
