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.

Lovely lunch here with friends. I only had the main course of steak pie and it was delish, my friend had the fish and the portion was huge, very filling and no room for desert. Decor nice and fresh. Would recommend for a pub lunch and will be back in the future. Yum yum

Visited for the first time 2 nights ago. Food very good quality and like that some of the options offer you a small portion. I had small fish and chips and it filled my plate and stomach too. The only slight negative I would say is that you need to book up in advance and also there was a long... More
