Description: Large 3 level pub in the centre of Edinburgh. We have some of the cheapest drink selections in town so we are very popular with students and backpackers. Traditional pub food served at brilliantly low prices. We are not affiliated with the venue known as the Tron Kirk.

Went on New Years Eve before the street party. Was great, cheap drinks and 5 pound for beer and burger. Obviously typical pub food but we had quite a few drinks at great prices. Good music played and had a great time overall. Will go back next time we visit.

A typical pub with a good hamburguer. Especially nice because you can choose the ingredients in your sandwich.

TIP: Visit in the afternoon. It's quieter. Love this little place with big characters! Would recommend for a quick stop off or pint, it's not a restaurant, plenty of those else where. This place has got some really great typical pub grub.

Me and the boyfriend ended up here on our trip. The drinks are amazingly cheap especially for the Royal Mile but I'm afraid to say my boyfriend got really bad food poisoning and we had to go home early because he was so ill. It was a shame because it was a really nice place and the staff were amazing... More

Hi Vickie, Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I do apologise if you felt unfairly treated by a member of our bar staff on your visit. Unfortunately due to very strict licensing laws in Scotland our bar staff constantly have to make snap judgements on whether a person has had too much to drink or not,... More

Popped in on a whim for a quick lunch. The soup was terrific and the chicken bugger was great, with just the right amount of chips (not too many). The atmosphere was good, and it was warm. The food arrived quickly was did not wait too long. Worth a visit for a quick easy meal or drink. Great location, just... More
