Good to see vegan choices. Vegan Korean burger was ok- not special but alright. Mac and Cheese for my colleague was enjoyed. Good pub atmosphere with excellent bar man- friendly and attentive. Would return to try something else from the menu.

Would not return ever. Super grumpy staff, spent all her time doing her best to ignore the fact she was in a service industry, no music , no atmosphere, had a better time at an airport bar. Leith walk rocks, you don't.....18/03/16......330pm
