Enjoyed a good Edinburger meal on my first night in Edinburgh recently with about 15 other ramblers from all over Britain. This came with a generous portion of chips. Service was friendly and efficient. Also enjoyed the drinks.

I originally gave this 3 stars then changed it as I realised that maybe my expectations were high. If you want a nice pub with nice pub grub, then it's a good place. I think I looked at the photographs and expected a Scandinavian eatery....More
