Square Meal Review of Joseph Pearce's Bar ?

Joseph Pearce has been a bar for well over a century, although its current incumbents have imbued it with a welcome measure of Scandinavian sensibility. Thanks to a lick of paint, some sofas, plants, artworks, a decent menu and other bohemian touches, it has been transformed beyond recognition. You’ll find crowds of drinkers here in the evening, hoovering up pints of Sagres or glasses of house red, although a children’s play area brings in parents with babies or toddlers for brunch or lunch (Swedish pancakes, meatballs and gravadlax alongside momofuko pork buns, veggie haggis lasagne, burgers and herb-crusted loin of lamb). If you’re sitting outside, there are complimentary blankets to ward off the Scottish chill, while other attractions include Scrabble nights, regular live music, DJs and art exhibitions. Related to Boda Bar in Leith.
