The Three Sisters, Cowgate

The Three Sisters have been well and truly hit by World Cup fever! They kicked things off with a samba party, have held World Cup Sticker Swaps and their staff even vowed to change their names to Brazillian Football Players if Brazil won the cup – oh what a different a few weeks and a mighty German squad can make. Even though Brazil are out you can still expect a great atmosphere in The Three Sisters with a giant outdoor screen in their Courtyard and BBQ area. You can also reserve a place in their multi-screened beer hall with massive food platters, 2 pint steins, VIP seating, and a guaranteed good view.
