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.

Average and slow food.

We were unimpressed. The draught selection was OK. For such a large pub, the kitchen should be able to provide food within 45min. The Mac and Cheese with Bacon was the best meal and I would highly recommend it. The burger seemed homemade, which was good. The soup appetizer was straight out of a... read more

We ordered food and was told they had no salmon, so ordered the curry, but they didn't have rice, so finally ordered pie. 2 meals come out together but we finished food before the 3rd meal arrived. This ruined the meal and lucky the first 2 didn't wait for the 3rd meal. Nice food but appalling service!

Waited well over an hour for a 'medium rare' steak and scampi. When it finally arrived the steak was the most well done steak I have ever eaten and was incredibly dry. The peas with the scampi were stone cold. We were not alone with being unhappy about the wait. Would not recommend.

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.

I have visited this establishment, over many years - and on return, it is always an enjoyable place to visit - with good prices, good quality produce - and generally a good atmosphere also - MY reservation would be for people, who like a quiet place to eat and drink - this is not it - also, despite the places...

Just wanted to write a quick review to say that we had a great night in the Tron a couple of weeks ago. We started out on carlsberg with one of us on rum and coke, the barmaid with one hair recommended to my mate that he try Kraken and apple juice, which he loved, and we all ended up... More

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.
