Stayed one night and had dinner. Staff very welcoming. Room was a bit tired (I did hear mention of a refurb), but comfortable. Food was excellent, would be 5/5. Thoroughly recommend the Ham Hock pie. Nice pint of Deuchars IPA. Breakfast good.

Nice pub with a good range of beers and spirits. Bar staff could be a bit more pleasant and chat a bit more. Felt a bit like an outsider when I was in having a few beers. Other than that, the atmosphere is pretty good and I have certainly been in a lot worse.

Family celebration so I booked a table just to be sure as it can get busy, even midweek. Food was very tasty and everyone cleaned their plates (bar one, and only cause the portion of steak pie was mighty)!! Bit disappointed their legendary cheesecake had run out but Luca's ice cream went down a treat with everyone. Will definitely be... More

Decent menu, plenty choice. Good atmosphere in the busy bar. Book in advance to avoid disappointment. Been a few times now and never been disappointed. Staff always willing to please. Handy place to stop off if walking or cycling on the water of Leith walk way. Well situated for buses.

Today we were charged £2.95 for coffee. Noticed that menu in garden listed coffee as £2.55. Drew attention to discrepency but told that was an old menu. No offer to ammend/ refund difference. On leaving menu at front door also list price as £2.55. Staff not welcoming, had to ask for tray to carry coffees to table. Will not visit... More

We arrived, we got served, we ate and we left. Not a word spoken by the staff apart from taking our order. Average food.... ok fish and chips but the ham hock pie was poor, slow service. Second and last visit for us.

Stayed here for the night as we were visiting family in the area. The pub itself is great and the bar meals look excellent, however we stayed in Room 5 and it is pretty dire! It was a disabled room although there was barely room for both of us so no one who was in a wheelchair would be able... More

Been here several times for food, never been let down. From their haggis balls to their sunday roasts! We tend to have the haggis balls with the chilli dip which we both love. Burgers are nice as is just about everything else. Nice mix of drinks too.

This is our local pub and thought we would head along for some food. I would advise booking at the weekend as the restaurant area isn't huge and gets very busy. The food is lovely, I had haggis balls and a steak and both were really well cooked. Nice selection of beers and wines too.
