Good pub food at good prices. Nothing too fancy, but you get what you pay for. Lack of parking can be an issue at times

After a hard day out mountain biking at Glentress we were ready for a good feed to say the least. The Waiting Room was chosen due to it being close to where my friends lived and fact that they had also eaten there before. The staff were attentive, the atmosphere was good, the food came in good time and there... More

A group of us went here on a Saturday and had a lovely afternoon. We enjoyed drinks and food and were served by lovely staff. No complaints at all, varied menu, usual pub grub but reasonably priced and well presented. Will definitely be back.

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
