Plenty of scotch to satisfy anyone and wide range of draught beers. We sampled the local bees and enjoyed them a lot. Paulina took good care of us and we think we might stop back again tomorrow for happy hour.

Was there with a few girlfriends celebrating a birthday on our trip. Our server Lucie was very helpful and attentive, and allowed us to relax and enjoy our experience and stay for the music which followed. It was delightful!

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

the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
