Had dinner here after visiting University of Edinburgh and had a wonderful experience. The staff accommodated our party of 10 without batting an eye and service was prompt and friendly. The food and drinks were amazing and we had a great time enjoying the experience...More

I came here for an evening meal and while there isn't a lot of choice for vegetarians, sometimes that's no bad thing as what they do, they do well. I had the lentil shepherds pie and it was very tasty - with a nice side...More

The outside look and the interior is nice. Good selection of beer and whisky. The food was average (“steak“ meat pie, some uninspiring vegetables and mashed potatoes), the New Zealand Rose wine delicious.

This pub is named after Bobby, who stood by his master’s grave for 14yrs after he past away. Located in front of Greyfriars Kirkyard, where his master is buried. Decent beer selection and food as well. One of Edinburgh’s landmarks!

I was looking forward to eating at the famous Greyfriars Bobbby. First I was disgusted when we stopped at the famous statue and was saddened to see it trashed with garbage and urine! The restaurant was clean though. We ordered and about 30 minutes later...More

Jackie, tour guide from London trip, recommended this pub. After long day of visiting the yacht, the castle and the palace we were hungry. The steak & ale pie hit the mark. Warm, tasty, and quite filling!

We called in for a quick drink and foot rest after finding the statue (I'm still surprised at its location!) Service was quick and drinks reasonably priced. The food menu looked good as well. I would have liked to come back but we ran out...More

Beautiful bar just behind the ‘statue’ of greyfriars Bobby and the National museum. We ate here twice while in Edinburgh. They have a good variety of pies and for those who can’t choose a taste of 3 as well. There’s a food and a bar...More

the pub is extremely nice, but the service was surprisingly slow. After 1 hour and half we did not receive our dishes and we left.

Great for a pub lunch, it does include a vegatarian option which is just what I was looking for. Busy match day but luckily got a table. Good lively atmosphere too. Quick service

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests

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
