Decent pint and classic spoons menu. Went here for a cheap bite and to get away from the pint prices at the fringe. Did the job and the bar staff were decent. There were a few friendly folk in the pub too. People actually wanted...More

Walked 40 mins specifically to find the place - however it’s a run down shabby local drinkers bar with sports showing on multiple tv screens, NOT the gastropub it’s website & the pictures of food would have you believe. Why lie? Ridiculous.
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around university buildings in Southside, the sort of neighborhood that supports a long string of second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for just a few pounds.

Southside are two great parks. The Meadows is a vast flat and sporty space where football, rugby, tennis, cricket, croquet, and golf often all take place side by side. Kids in its big playgrounds add to the joyful noise. Far bigger and much wilder, Holyrood Park extends to the east and provides a real hike up Arthur’s Seat, but the district is best known as the site of Scotland’s Parliament and its premier Royal Palace—and their steady stream of sightseers.
