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.

Tried this out for lunch but the steak & chips were seasoned, managed to get steak not seasoned but had to have baked potato instead of chips. That would have been ok but parts of the potato were cold. Also wanted fish & chips & steak pie but although they were on the menu they were not available. We ate... More

My boyfriend and I spent a few days in Edinburgh and ate here for dinner every evening - it's cheap, great food and lovely staff, nice friendly pub atmosphere, great to have somewhere reasonably priced when everywhere else is expensive!

I haven't been in this pub for 30+ years and little has changed. We were upstairs in the small bar where the food was good, the drink nice, and the atmosphere convivial. Mostly locals despite its central location and all the better for it. No compromises were made for tourists but all who wandered in seemed happy. A nice place... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighborhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
