The venue is wonderful and I'm guessing it's often full. People were prepared to take a table and wait for extra seats. You order at the bar and food and drinks came out promptly. It's a great place for a quick, efficient meal and it's...More

A perfect ending to a great day out at the festival. Cheap drinks, decent food and the best thing is if you manage to get a table use the mobile app! This saved us so much time as the queues at the bar were crazy!

We went to this restaurant because we have read in several travellers blogs that it was a good place to go. Well, we agree that the place is worth seeing: really big and the decoration is good, but once you see and taste the food,...More

Beautiful interior, cheap food with drinks included, you get your food fast, and it's very tasty too. All in all one of the greatest pubs we visited. Ended up going there 4 times in the week we stayed there!

Probably the best Wetherspoons I’ve been to. Amazing building and superb service. Can get busy, outside seating is great to watch the world go by.

This Wetherspoons pub was close to our accommodation and we found it by accident. Staff were helpful and made recommendations for our breakfast choices. We went there 2 days running for a good value, substantial breakfast. Nice building with interesting history.

Came here after going to the Booking Room and being told this place has more seating. The Booking room was mad chaos. This place was a mad house too. We had to hunt for a table and hover over people asking them if they are...More

Even though Spoons are Spoons they’re not all equal. This is a nicely decorated old building with a terrific Scottish atmosphere. Very very busy at lunchtime and manic in the evening. Staff are friendly and are quick to serve you. I had haggis,neeps and tatties...More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street
helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned
Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
