this is the pub that has the best edimburgh tale: a girl named Maggie was hanged to death but survived. Then she opened this pub - and was free of taxes because for the government she was dead!

This place is located in the Grass Market, so it has a great location. The food was average, as was the service. I would probably eat somewhere else, then just come here for a drink.

We walked in and there was a fab band playing, fab place, fab atmosphere but no tonic? There is no pub anywhere that has no tonic?

We only went here for a drink, but the pub is very well situated and has a nice little story behind the name. Got busy, the food I saw being served looked really nice and not much was being left so that says something.

Stopped this morning for a can of diet coke and a small slimline tonic with a dash of lime cordial in it, we were charged £6.60 for this. Most expensive pub in Edinburgh that we have come across all weekend!! Never again.

This pub is in a great location for a drink and to watch the people walk by. We stopped in for a night cap whiskey after a long day of touring. It was a very comfortable especially since we sat at the table "barrel" which is near the window.

We went here because it was close to our hotel and we wanted something quick and easy. The pub itself had a fun decor and atmosphere. We got a table inside the pub as it was chilly outside. The ladies at the bar were friendly and helpful. We were able to order our drinks and food quickly. One had steak... More

The only reason we went to Maggie wad because all the other pubs around us were completely full. The food arrived very quicky, almost worryingly so, and was of acceptable quality. The alcohol selection was good enough. Would have given them an average score, however when we wanted to pay the bill the waitors had all left already, and we... More

Stopped by for a traditional pub meal. As it was 8pm on a Friday night we thought it would be packed, but the pub was fairly quiet and we were seated in a nice cosy area away from the bar. The staff were friendly and the doorman even helped us with directions. Food menu choice standard pub meals i.e. burgers,... More
