Our Impressions of Tynecastle Park

Tynecastle Stadium, as it's now more commonly known, suffered a major revamp over the past 8 years. From the 100 year old rickety stands...to modern state-of-the-art business. Although the capacity has dropped to just 17,900, facilities and design have improved dramatically. Biggest ever Tynecastle crowd being 53,000 for a Scottish Cup tie with Rangers back in the olden days.

Local Area around Tynecastle Park

Car Parking


There's no car parking in and around the ground itself and, due to it being on a main road, you'll not be able to park within miles of the ground.

There is parking within the Bank Of Scotland car park just round the corner, but you need a permit issued by the club prior to the game.

Pubs Near Tynecastle Park

The Golden Rule

Located in Yeaman Place, Edinburgh, this pub servers a large selection of real ales (...twelve pumps full of the stuff), and is very popular with the locals, hence it gets rather busy before and after matches. What is there to drink? It may be easier to ask what isn't there! Real ales on twelve hand pumps in the bar always include Caley 80, IPA, Bass and a range of guest ales. Lager is Tennent's, plus Stella Artois, Staropramen and Hoegaarden all on draught. There's also Belhaven Best, Caffrey's, Guinness in regular as well as extra cold, and Dry Blackthorn Cider (not the UK's number one!). Bottled lagers are too many to list here, and there's some additional oddities like a range of fruit gins.

Diggers

Located in Angle Park Terrace and has the best atmosphere in Edinburgh on matchdays. Serve snack such a pies, pasties, rolls etc

Gray's Mill

Located in Slateford Road and is a free house. This pub is home to quite few home supporters , but away fans also frequently drink here with little trouble. This results in much banter, and 'club' anthems being sung. The food served at this pub is very good, with a good selection. If you are eating, then we suggest that you get there early, and order, and when the pub is really busy food orders are often declined. Malones the bakers is two doors away so lots of people are found to sneaking out there later on for a steak pie on a roll.

Robertsons

Gregor Keyte has dropped us an e-mail, and recommends Robertsons. Purely for the name alone, it's worth popping in here. Ideally situated from Tynie, along the Gorgie. Spacious inside, so no problems with crowd congestion.
