When I found out whats in Haggis I was a bit concerned but this restaurant truly delivered some amazing taste. The starter Haggis came with two different Whiskey based sauces - both excellent. The burger is made of Scottish Beef - you can taste the...difference if you aren’t local so I would only recommend the beef burger to those able to handle strong meet taste. The chicken burger was outstanding. Fairly priced, staff are really welcoming and was super professional at all times, even cracked a few jokes for us. Toilets are clean and ready to welcome disabled people. Nice location - walking distance from the main train station. Restaurant kept clean, there are seatings both inside and outside. Nice selection of drinks available. The BBQ sauce served with the burgers was outstanding. Definitely recommend.More

Visited on the last night before lockdown but received fantastic service, wouldn’t have known any different. In a lovely setting, with great walks nearby and short ride to Manchester. Bedrooms super clean and very comfortable with high quality queen bed. Perfect luxury end to the...day. The spa amenities are great but particularly the outdoor thermal pool. Amazing on a bright autumn afternoon ! Every staff member was pleasant and helpful. Bar and restaurant have a lovely warm, comfortable feeling. Reception staff particularly helpful to me. Will be back soon as I can for another relaxing break!More

We are a bilingual couple from Spain living in London and visiting Edinburgh. We went there to have a drink and the couple in front of us got a table immediately, however they invited us to leave when we started to speak, referring to us...as "honey" (very cheeky and disrespectful waitress) and there was tables available and no queues or anyone waiting. Not the treatment expected from an Edinburgh landmark. Very disappointed, not recommended for non-english speakers or tourists. There is plenty of other pubs around that will welcome you with a smile (and reasonable prices). Enjoy Edinburgh!More

The Last Drop is yet another bar on Grassmarket with it's name linked to hanging and reputedly haunted !. It is deceptively spacious and very nice inside and has a good range of food and drinks on offer. Covid precautions are very good and the...staff are mainly young but courteous and efficient.More
