Kyle Jamieson and Iain McPherson have taken over the Admiral Taverns tenancy at The Nauticus in Leith. Formerly known as the Parlour, the name is a nod to its historic location on the coastline and the pub’s heritage as a first ‘port of call’ when traders and merchants would first dock in Leith.
Iain and Kyle have both worked extensively in the wider pub industry and took their decision earlier this year to take on their first pub together.
Kyle said, “The pub is a real celebration of the history and local community of Leith. We wanted to create a very stylish but comfortable pub where people from all ages could enjoy local, best in class Scottish produce. It’s been fantastic to have the opportunity to create our vision for the pub. We’re delighted to have the chance to be able to showcase and support so many local suppliers and we are really looking forward to seeing the reaction of our customers.”
