COVID 19 UPDATE: We are very excited to have our gates open once again! Walk-ins are welcome but booking is recommended on 01856 875 338 or via the Oot The Back page on our website. Visit to find out more!

Oot The Back is an outdoor, covered bar experience in the heart of Kirkwall. Fitted with ten individual, heated booths, visitors can come and enjoy a few drinks in a safe, socially distanced environment. You can find us at the home of Kirkjuvagr Orkney gin - The Orkney Distillery!

The outbreak of COVID-19 expedited the arrival of our garden bar experience, Oot The Back and we are really pleased that we have been able to create an environment that allows people to meet once again with friends and family in a COVID-safe environment.

We have created a unique QR code that allows you to order your drinks, in the comfort of your booth, straight from your phone! We have a wide range of spirits and cocktail jugs as well as snacks, soft drinks, mocktails and a hot drinks menu - there's something for everyone! We're even dog friendly!

We always welcome walk-ins but booking is advised. This can be done by giving us a call on 01856 875338 or visiting
