Great place to chill out on a Sunday

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... read 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

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.

This place is just fine for a snack and a drink while the sport is on. The food was as expected , quick easy bar food - but it did taste good! Service wasn't great, the staff were more interested in the TV. The place is comfortable and easy going if you don't want anything too fancy !

We go with friends for supper at least once a month and we think the waiting room gives great service and value for money. We are going again tomorrow night with other friends who will hopefully love it as much as us.

Been here several times and always met with friendly and helpful staff, however it seriously gone down hill since the new manager is in place. It totally lacks any atmosphere, staff seem not very interested in customer requests when big sport event are taking place.

I've been here for lunch a few times now, and I'm always well looked after. The food is a good price, but not great for quality nor quantity. They are very dog friendly though, which is great, and I really can't fault the staff. The worst experience I've had was ordering olives - which were cheap and nasty, and not... More

Come here all the time with friends or for meals with my Fiancé. Food and drink is fairly priced. Staff are lovely and has a cosy atmosphere. Love it :)
