“food and drink reasonably priced good service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

we were a party of four on a saturday night,and enjoyed the evening.
The pub was very busy,but we had booked a table at lunch time.
We had pies, chicken, and steak between us followed by various desserts,and a
selection of drinks.
The service was very good, the food great,and the bill not expensive for the locality.

“Possibly the nicest burger ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The title stays it all. Outstanding service from bar staff who knew exactly what they were serving and were very clued up on the whiskeys on offer. The waitresses were friendly and polite, and the burger here was simply divine. A real treat for all who visit Edinburgh

“Fun and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Have one of the pies. They are great. The servers were very attentive and gave samples of beers with which we were not familiar.

“Lovely place and cracking bar But”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Nice bar very expensive but you expect that. Bar is nice with a good feeling. We then went into the restaurant big mistake. The food was again expensive and really poor pub grub standard. The presentation was very Poor the meal ingredients was low standard cooked badly. Save your money people it's terribly bad and this is a shame it has all the ingredients to be a top place but let's you down
