“stag do”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We came here for drinks and a bite to eat straight from arriving on Friday. It is quite a basic place with a limited food menu: baguettes and sandwiches, small plates like chilli con carne or jacket potatoes was about it. No chips though which we thought was strange. The beer was fine and service was good. I think we went back the following day for lunch too now I'm thinking about it. That's right, they had the rugby on! And it was right opposite our hotel.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Just back from visit to Edinburgh and first pub we went to was 'The Last Drop' absolutely excellent. The manager was very welcoming and following day met his wife. Didn't get their names unfortunately but they were so nice and talkative. Told us a few stories about Edinburgh and also 'Marie' their friendly ghost. Def be going back to visit. From Aberdeen

Friendly staff. quick service ... with a smile!
