The popular Maggie Dickson's pub is named after a fishwife from Musselburgh who was accused of being a witch. She was hung in 1728 in the market square. But astonishingly, as her body was being driven back to Musselburgh, she awoke in her coffin. Under Scottish law she was considered legally dead and thus could not be hung again!
There is a long thin bar which is packed with a lively bunch of locals and students, especially at weekends. Stick around for quiz night on Mondays! Some days feature live music.
