Ate here last night. On the plus side the location is outstanding, outdoor seating available soaking up the ambience and evening sun in the lively Grassmarket . Waiting staff were pleasant and the food was cheap. Ok the downside is the food was pretty tasteless and to be honest not up to much. I would recommend going for drinks and... More

Ate at this establishment with my hubby this evening, wish we'd gone for fast food elsewhere, after asking the waiter to check if onions were in steakpie (my fave scottish dish) as I have an allergy he confirmed after checking with the manager there were none, needless to say there was hence my rating!

We had decided to lunch there so no prob...I had the Haggis, Potatoes and Turnip dish. It was very, very good. The staff were excellent... More

Visited this little pub last night for a drink before we moved on to a club and safe to say we won't be back. The barmaid with the purple hair was very blunt and unhelpful when we arrived and simply asked what the cheapest drink was! I actually ignored the bad service I received throughout my transaction before she then... More

It was a lovely day in Edinburgh and our group of seven ate alfresco. Service was excellent and the food was tasty as well. I recommend the haggis fritters. Great selection of ales and Scotch whisky with some wines as well. Crabbies Ginger Beer is nice if you're looking for something low alcohol and refreshing. The entire experience was very... More
