Bland and slow

Visited for the first time for an evening meal with friends who raved about the lunchtime menu. Bits of someone else's pizza on the floor under our table.

It's one our locals. I go there with my wife if we can't be bothered to cook for ourselves. The service is friendly and fast, and there are several sorts of beer. Our main complaint is that the menu is a bit dull and doesn't seem to ever change. There is nothing to excite us. Also the Chillie Con Carne... More

I really love this pub. I've been coming frequently for about a year now after moving to Morningside. The staff are always great and friendly and generally really efficient. It's my pet peeve in bars when it's busy and the bar staff don't even acknowledge you to say they'll be with you in just a minute (which happened to me... More

The barman came back after preparing the first drink to ask what the other drink was, the waitress seemed to struggle to understand me, although I don't have much of an accent, and the nachos were very average, with a strange version of salsa. There was football on the tv but I don't think it really needed to be quite... More

The waiting room has a great relaxed atmosphere, brilliant place to chill out and watch the sport, staff always are happy to accommodate and recommend. The chicken fajitas are by far the best I have had!! I compare all fajitas get to the standard and taste of them and none come close! Great prices and really good pub food! Highly... More

This is by far one of the better bars in the Morningside area. It has a good selection of ales that regularly change. The food is standard pub fare with large portions to boot. The atmosphere is what ou'd expect from a friendly local.
