The food was good and that's the reason why I give 3*. The order was taken wrong but that's ok, these things happen. BUT, the service was slow and very unorganised. There were 2 people working and they got extremely overwhelmed when the pub started...More

We stumbled across this pub (actually more of a bar) by accident. It is modern, and has a brilliant range of beer. We visited about 4 or 5 times during our 3 day Edinburgh stay. The staff were chatty and friendly and the place was...More

Was busy, but busy was an excuse not to clean up. Very poorly managed that night. Tables were sticky, smashed glass everywhere. Went outside and what looked like the manager too busy smoking to care. Was a Tuesday night? Dread to think what it’s like...More

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

Description
Large 3 level pub in the centre of Edinburgh. We have some of the cheapest drink selections in town so we are very popular with students and backpackers. Traditional pub food served at brilliantly low prices. We are not affiliated with the venue known as the Tron Kirk.
