The Ryrie’s Story...

History

Ryrie’s – a “wee” gem... not “yer” typical train  station “boozer!”

Ryries is a little changed Edwardian public house which occupies a very prominent position at the junction of Dalry Road, Haymarket Terrace and Morrison Street and makes an important contribution to the townscape.

The Bar has good Baronial details and a Scottish Renaissance style wooden pub front.

The interior has some attractive leaded and stained glass with lettering and a finely detailed carved gantry behind the bar.

Kirkwood’s map of 1817 shows the earlier building on this site as the Haymarket weigh house. At some point before 1852 (possibly in 1842 at the same time as Haymarket Station was opened) the corner building had become an inn.

It is shown on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map as `The Railway Inn´ and occupied the whole of the site later occupied by Ryries at the East and the Haymarket Inn at the West. The Haymarket Inn was built slightly west of the corner in 1862.

The building now occupied by Ryries would appear to have been rebuilt and baronialised in 1868 (the cast-iron hoppers bear this date) and some alterations were made to the Haymarket Inn at this date as well. By 1906 the two parts were linked as private and public bars of one property under the name the Haymarket Inn and the ground floor and interior rebuilt.

The client for the 1906 work was Messrs Ryrie & Company, whisky merchants, presumably capitalising on the large trade provided by users of the station.”

Ryrie’s has witnessed times past from trams coming and going and coming again! The erection of the Hearts memorial in memory of the former players of local Edinburgh team Heart of Midlothian FC, who lost their lives serving their country during World  Wars I and II. And many more tales from the depths of the forgotten...

Ryrie’s is a Historic Scotland listed building.
