Mid-week lunch. Vibrant and friendly atmosphere, with good natural lighting. EXCELLENT SERVICE. Wonderful main course of haggis-stuffed chicken-breast. Well cooked & presented and a good sized portion. Washed down with a pint of locally brewed real ale. Refreshing and hoppy (in a GOOD way) taste....More

We popped into Fiddlers Inn on a snowy St. Patrick's day after finding the other Grassmarket pubs were full. It was a great discovery! I ordered Salmon and Mash, and it was great! I was full but not stuffed when done. Highly recommended!

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
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
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
