Stopped off here for some lunch whilst walking through Morningside and was really pleasantly surprised. The staff were really warm and attentive. The food was delicious, in fact I was really impressed with the food; the chilli nachos are a must have, they were so tasty and the portion was really big, big enough 2 of us shared one portion....

We go in to the waiting room when we are in the area and have not been disappointed yet. They have a great selection of cask and keg real ales and the food is good pub grub. Very good fish and chips and tasty chilli con carne. The staff are always helpful and friendly.

Just had a lovely lunch with friends. The loaded burger was excellent, and our server recommended having some of the celeriac coleslaw with it - really nice. Place was just beginning to fill up for an afternoon of rugby. They had a good selection of tasty Scottish beers on tap. Relaxing, friendly - would recommend for a coffee or a... More

The Waiting Room is our local pub in the area. They have introduced special beers and ales from Scotland for a while now. I highly recommend other pub goers to sample these beers & ales soon. As we have been in the pub at numerous occasion for lunch or dinner,it's great value for money, food is fab and service wonderful.

I've frequented this pub dozens of times but feel the food has gone extremely downhill. The well known, normally excellent loaded burger is now a thing of the past. We tried the fish and burger but both were dreadful and the staff admitted that the kitchen staff were all changed. The food at this establishment was always great but sadly... More

Used to be good - poor in all departments now. The food was cold and inedible. When I complained they didn;t really care - Thanks - won't be back

They have a great choice of beers and other drinks (particularly Gins). Decided to eat on a whim one Friday night and we were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, we had fajitas and stir-fried teriyaki chicken - both were excellent. Food and drink are very reasonably priced.

The Morning Glory did not have a lot for a vegeterial so we went to the Waiting Room. It was good. Nothing special as I was looking at the burgers that my friends... More
