Sat outside here in a very cramped seating area. Tin chairs and small tables don't exactly appeal. However, we gave it a try, drinks were reasonably priced for Edinburgh. The menu was small and basic but very appealing, two of our party had chicken and bacon salad which was really nice, with a lovely dressing. The other two had the... More

This is a nice pub for a drink with a good selection of real ales, wines and large selection of whiskey. Nice staff, good service. Prices are not cheap 2 glasses of Chardonnay for a little less than £10 but they were large glasses - you can't have both ways as this stops problematic customers frequenting the place. Easy to...

We came across this pub whilst walking around. It is quite small, dark and cosy inside but outside when the weather is good (as it was when we visited) it's a lovely place to sit and people watch. We enjoyed the food and it was plentiful. My husband particularly enjoyed the real ale. Service is friendly and when ordering food... More

Was recommended to go here by friends and we were seriously dissapointed. The actual place is very quirky on the inside and at first we thought it was going to be good. However I have never been served by such uninterested, ignorant bar staff. We risked some foid which was very average and the starter was served at the same... More

We visited Edinburgh from 13th - 15th May. Always come to this place and did so both nights. One reason being, is that my hubby loves real ale! Love the atmosphere and the coziness here. It was right on our doorstep as well, our hotel was in the same street. Bar staff are friendly. The first night we also had... More

Enjoyed drinks & Food with friends. Managed to bag a wee table in the sun which was brilliant. Inside is ye olde world & you could imagine it being a cosy friendly place in the winter too. Staff were helpful, food was good........ We did see the biggest stacked burger in Edinburgh though! Reaonably priced for a city centre pub.

We ventured into dirty Dicks on Easter Saturday, didnt know what to expect with a name like that! How wrong we were, it was a cosy little pub with lots of knick knacks on the walls and ceilings. The tables were very close together and could imagine a winters night with the fires burning a very homely thought. The staff... More
