Have been back for a couple of meals now! This pub was the first we visited as we entered 'The Old Town'. I had the steak and ale pie and just have to say the meat was cooked to perfection! My partner had the fish...More
Chain pub (Bellhaven) - helpful and attentive staff, however, the toilet facilities ( both ladies and gents) were disgusting - filthy and stinking. Not a great experience for visitors and so bad that we decided not to eat there or stay on. Will not return...More

Popped in for a beer last night, lovely friendly staff with alcohol free beer available! Accidentally left my kindle behind and called in before they’d opened this morning. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful, kindle retrieved and day made!!

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
