Went for lunch with my mum and sat in their sunny conservatory. We both enjoyed the food very much. The only very small criticism would be that you can be forgotten about in the conservatory and I had to go looking for a member of staff for a couple of things. Other than that it was a lovely visit. Can't... More

We enjoyed a lovely 3 course meal in this pub on Saturday night. The starters of haggis and bruschetta were lovely. Our main courses of chicken leek pie and balmoral chicken were also very tasty. As was the fudge cake pudding. The service was supurb and there wasn't any waiting between courses. Would recommend for food and they also do... More

We decided to try Ye Olde Inn after hearing friends rave about it. Tuesday evening meal. I decided to try the chicken satay hanging kebab, after waiting a little longer than average. I was presented with my kebab. Hanging from a skewer with chips at the bottom. Very good presentation but as I cut into the chicken it was still... More

Been here twice and had great food both times. We went on a Saturday night and sat in the lounge. The entertainment was not very sophisticated (a dj playing old classics and then karaoke) but we really enjoyed ourselves and the atmosphere was welcoming. We went back another time during the day and sat in the bar as its dog... More

I've eaten here a couple of times now. The building itself is lovely, they have a bar room, a restaurant, conservatory, a beer garden outside along with a children's small play park. The furnishings inside could do with a spruce. The food is your average pub grub, nothing really to rave about but very good prices, ideal if you want... More

Visited twice during our stay in Edinburgh. Had our 5 year old with us. The food was great both nights - tasty & good value for money. Lots of choice on the menu. Children's playground outside. What let this down was the service on our second night - slow & inattentive - complete contrast from the night before. Such a... More
