SIMON Keane, one of the owners of Malones Leith, is proud to announce the opening of their new pub on Constitution Street. Simon’s motivation to extend the family of pubs to Leith stemmed from numerous factors, but a significant personal influence was discovering a considerable number of his wife Celena’s ancestors had arrived in Scotland through the Port of Leith.

“Leith is important to my wife since so many of her Irish ancestors can be traced back generations since they arrived in Leith port for their new lives in Scotland,” said Simon. “If it wasn’t for Leith, we may never have met, so opening a Malones venue in Leith is in a way a tribute to my wife and her ancestral roots. Given that some of her ancestors settled here, I’m sure she has extended family members in Leith, so we hope you can all enjoy a drink at Malones and maybe discover something about your past!”

Following in the footsteps of Malones Edinburgh, it’s only the second venue in Edinburgh to offer Tennent’s Tank Lager. The pub is also committed to sustainability, and sources its drinks from brands that share its values. Their own-brand Smugglers Spirts of gin and vodka are made in Edinburgh with hand-harvested, locally-sourced botanicals and ingredients. As well as working with a Dublin-based distillery in the legendary Libertines district to make their very own Malones Triple Cask Irish Whiskey.

The menu focuses on quality, locally-caught seafood, a speciality of head chef, Ruxi Mirton-Teng. Ruxi, a Leith local who previously worked at Michelin-starred restaurant Heron, is excited to create high-quality pub grub with an Irish twist, celebrating the Leith-Irish connection. 

“Malones as a brand is great craic. But also remember that we’re Irish people running authentic Irish pubs – not Irish themed pubs. You’ll find no Paddy-wackery stuff here. It’s all good quality drinks, live music from local talent, sports, great locally-sourced food, and attentive service from my wonderful team.” said Simon.

Malones Leith is child-friendly (until 10pm) and dog-friendly. The pub is open seven days a week, from 11am to 1am with a weekly roster of sport and live music.
