Take a trip back in time in this iconic pub. When you're in Grassmarket it is a must see, however be aware that you have to get your own drinks, although it did seem that food is delivered to the table. Atmosphere and ambience as...it was 100 years ago.More

This was a let down from the get go. Smelt a bit funny coming in, but it’s an old pub so didn’t think much of it. Terrible Guinness served in a pretty shabby glass. Table we sat at was dirty and had loads of chewing...gum under it so we moved to another. Same thing again! Not to speak ill of the staff but watching the chef go out the front for a smoke in full chef uniform doesn’t really inspire confidence so we skipped food here and didn’t even finish our beerMore

Wandered in looking for food and loved the look and vibe of this restaurant from the outside. Little did we know, the inside was even better! Gabriel and Shannon were immediately welcoming and made us feel like we were coming in as long time friends...of the bar. We ordered the Balmoral chicken, cocktails, and cranachan, which were all chosen with Gabriel’s help. Everything was extremely tasty and served quickly. The experience was much appreciated especially after a long journey in the rain and cold from London into Edinburgh. We have added this place to our list to visit again very soon!More

Very friendly staff that made us feel welcome from the beginning. Lively atmosphere, nice mix of people. Only thing that prevents it from full score was the lack of several dishes on the menu. It must be said it was Jan.1st so that may have...contributed to it. Anyways, nice place-we’ll be back!More

Lovely historic pub on Grassmarket. Busy as expected on the day before Hogmanay. Nevertheless managed to get a table. Great atmosphere, lively and warm. Staff and service were good. Order at the bar as the qr codes are a bit rubbish. Food was tasty but...portions tiny for the price. Balmoral chicken the best bet. Haggis and Neeps portion was parlous and the stovies was tasty but only one paltry slice of French stick to go with it.More
