We had walked our feet off when we came across Maggie Dickson's. Again this being Scotland we were told we could only sit and drink with our 6 month old if we were ordering food. 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!

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

I read the story of Maggie Dickson which is presented just outside the entrance, and when I had finished, I jst had to go inside to have a pint. Good pub, located in the Grassmarket area.

Stopped here for a quick bite, was quite curious about the haggis fritters and they were very tasty! Barman was friendly and the fritters were at my table in minutes. Definitely worth a try if you're wandering around grassmarket

We went here for a late lunch/early dinner on our last day. Everyone else really enjoyed their meals, but the haggis was the worst I had had in the 2 weeks I spent in Scotland. Like it had been pre-made and frozen, then microwaved and served. The service was also poor.
