Popped in for brekkie based on the good reviews. The place looked like a bomb site with tables waiting to be cleared. There was one other table being served. We Waited an eternity for service take away customers getting served first so we walked out. Total rubbish

We've been here on our first night in Edimburgh and liked it. All dishes were nice, and the shepherd's pie was literally huge. Great spot for a cheap dinner with friends

The only problem we had was from the loud music. We even mentioned to the waitress that the music was loud and she said "Yes, it was very loud." but then... More

Try the sausage and mash, the vegy haggis and Shepherds Pie. Just great. Then we come to pay and instead of mints with the bill. Black Jacks and Fruit Salads well that finished... More

We saw this restaurant in a few guides, but were disappointed in the food quality. The service was fine, but it just isn't a place we would recommend.
