“Nice Place for a Drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

Not a bad place to go before or after a film at the Cameo, though it has also served as a nice place for a casual drink. Atmosphere is relaxed, service friendly. Good coffee and cakes.

“Friendly wee bar with great service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2014

I absolutely love this pub! Have been a few times and always enjoyed my visit but the staff on this occasion were even more friendly and helpful than usual! We had table service and when I asked the waitress if they had sloe gin she didn't know but a lovely American man came over to our table to explain the kind that they had and what I should drink with it! Above and beyond the kind of service you usually get in a busy bar... We got wee tips and stories with our next few rounds & even though the bar got really busy when the panto came out next door the level of service and friendliness remained the same. I'd say it's one of the best bars in Edinburgh :)

Cosy and comfortable space for good social times. Always a good place to resort to for personal or group conversations.

“but it is the best ive had of this type”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

John you make the best hummus in edinburgh the service was friendly but not intrusive. The Pizza was light and deleisous im sorry about the spelling. The bar was quiet you could hear yourself think. An oasis of calm in the maddness of the festival. excellent for a light lunch

“A good accompaniment”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Comfy sofas, tasty cakes, good teas and coffees - all while you wait for your film to be called. All that's missing are the real ales....
