My partner had the lobster ravioli and we are pretty sure it was not proper lobster! It looked like mush in the past. My pasta was fine but no flavour. The staff were very good and did apologise for the long wait.

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
