Lovely surroundings but the chairs are like dining chairs from four decades ago, they're very uncomfortable! Walked in at 3.30, bought 2 quite expensive drinks, then met with "that table is reserved in 2 hours time". Doesn't exactly make you want to stay or feel valued but bar itself is interesting. We stayed for one drink as felt table reservations... More

Good atmosphere when you walk in with good open fires on a cold day. Old fashioned pleasant décor, with many theatre posters on the walls. We had a table of four for lunch before a matinee show, and had reserved a table which is quite advisable. The menu choice was very good and all of our meals and drinks were... More

We loved the decor and the atmosphere. Perfect for pre-theatre drinks, food. There was a range of age groups too, which is nice.

We left the Edinburgh Castle to walk to the Scott Monument when the rain started, we fast tracked along Princes Street to Greenside and ducked into a journey into the past. Posters from all eras hang eloquently on the walls, many signed by the performers of plays and concerts. Excellent atmosphere, wonderful staff, http://www.theatreroyalbar.co.uk.

I think I have never seen a guy that pissed to get money from customers. Please note that non UK tourists may not have change in £ that's why we may ask to pay separately, so take our money and stop to complain. Our tip was as significant as your kindness!

You need to consolidate reviews for multiple entries for the same establishment I was very satisfied with our pre- theatre meal here.
