I've been visiting the Cambridge Bar off and on for over 10 years and the service, quality of burgers and great selection of beers continue to make this a must-visit city centre venue. This is especially true for big football and rugby union matches where their screens and a great atmosphere make for a good time. Of course, their burgers... More

We stumbled upon this great little spot whilst searching for somewhere to get lunch. Friendly knowledgeable staff, fantastic burgers and a great selection of the freshest cask ales we tried on the whole holiday. I know where I'm going for lunch the next time I'm in Edinburgh! :-)

On arriving in the bar the waitress was welcoming and friendly. She a as prompt in taking and serving the drinks order and was on hand for the food order. The burger was lovely - simple with lettuce and tomato, with a choice of sauces, relish, mayo. I ordered the Cajun fries for some spice - they were OK but... More

Been going here for a while so it's about time I say why. The best mochas and milkshakes in the area in our opinion. Burgers are pretty special too. Maybe a little small but what can you do?! Cheers!

Such a lovely place; a wide range of DELICIOUS burgers (you can have them without the bun for the health conscious; you get a lovely caesar salad with it instead) and lots of great ciders and beers as well. Friendly staff. I have been 3 or 4 times, the burger was a little overdone today but that can be my... More

What a place, and what a hidden Scottish gem! We went for Saturday lunch on the recommendation of a friend, and managed to get a seat near the window on one of the very comfortable sofas. The highlights of the NZ vs England game were put on the big screen at our request, but this didn't feel intrusive at all,... More

After reading several reviews, we decided to try their hamburgers. Good, but not great - mostly because they can't cook to order, so the meat patty comes out medium-well at best, and just not as juicy as a burger should be. My wife and I are both from beef country in the western U.S., so we do have somewhat high... More

This place is a nice little gem in Edinburgh. It's hidden away on a backstreet and despite hearing great things about it, I never visited it until this year. True to everything that I heard the burgers are excellent and there is a great selection. Being an American in Scotland, good burgers are usually hard to come by, but not... More
