“The Oxford bar was busy when Rebus arrived. He’d already had one drink at the Maltings, leaving before the evening influx of student, and two drinks at Swany’s on Causewayside.” Ian Rankin, Set in Darkness.
Its fun reading Ian Rankin books they are mostly set in Edinburgh. The Maltings used to be one of the pubs I would drink in while I was a student at Edinburgh Uni. I used to live across the road from The Blue Oyster which was transformed into the Cali sample room, mmmmm Cali 80. Then in my final year I lived about a stones throw away from The Physician and Frikin. My flat mate used to give directions using pubs as landmarks.
