Just the best burgers served by really efficient & friendly staff. Their salad bowl option instead of a bun with the burger is fantastic. This time we enjoyed the set Xmas menu offering any burger along with a choice of delicious dessert plus a glass of Prosecco for £14.95 - amazing value! Will be back again before Xmas!

A favourite haunt of our family - great burgers and good beer and wine. Spoiled somewhat this time by some drunk, boorish, overgrown private schoolboys watching the rugby, who the staff seemed reluctant to deal with properly.

Had a great burger in this place. The staff were very friendly and the food was very decent. My gf had an Italiano burger which she also said was really nice. Price reasonable. Good selection of beers and its central enough in Edinburgh.

We visited this restaurant twice. The staff were really friendly and helpful, the burgers were delicious with plenty of choice. We had the salad no bun which again was really tasty normally salad in burger restaurants are pretty poor so I was really impressed!

This place is a little gem. Staff were friendly and food looked amazing. We came here to watch the football so only had a chance to stay for a couple of drinks but the place had such a nice feel to it. Perfect for couples, friends, family, dogs! Would come here again. And next time try one of those burgers!!!!

Was starving for lunch so looked up a burger restaurant on an app and the pictures for this place looked great. Walked to a quieter street a few behind the main princes street and found this pub tucked away. Walked in and got greeted and seated by a warm (not real but gas) fire which was nice. They have a...

We were visiting Edinburgh for a short break and wanted to find somewhere to watch the last F1 race of the season and have lunch.

EXCELLENT FOOD - EXCELLENT SERVICE! 5 stars! The service was excellent, we arrived 40 mins late for a reserved table because of a confusion on my behalf over the booking time. When we got there the table was still reserved. We were celebrating my boyfriends birthday and they went an extra mile to accommodate us. They knew we were in... More
