This is the type of bar where you enter and immediately understand that it's frequented by and catered to locals. Nice ambience, good selection of beers, and amazing fish&chips!

This pub is probably more suited to those who are dining particularly at lunch time when we visited. There was a good selection of ales and service was good. Well located on the Royal Mile close to major tourist attractions.

Old Town
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
