My 10 year old daughter loves the adult meals at Wetherspoons! In a 2 day trip to Edinburgh, this was our second branch. She enjoyed a lovely panini followed by chocolate brownie while I settled for a glass of Villa Maria having had a huge breakfast! Reasonable prices but good quality labels ... A winner!

My friends and I were in here 19th April 2013
The place was spotless
Waitress very smart
Service good
We had three calzones and they were lovely they was two topping one was sour cream and I can't spell it but I will try glocamoli - fries were optional as was the toppings
Deserts well ice cream included honey comb. I opted for the sticky toffee pudding but had swithered about the honey comb I cream. When it came the sticky toffee was to die for I had a blob of cream and she put a ball of honey comb which I thot was a nice touch
A bottle of wine it fist us £20 each and that gave the staff just over £5 tip
Yes I would go back and there was no rush to get u out the door

Popped in for breakfast on a Monday. The breakfast was dry and burnt and not tasty at all. The only thing which was pleasant was the Lorne Sausage but the rest was salty and dry. Not good and wouldnt visit again

Excellent location with a great choice of menu and drinks. Visited during a rugby international weekend as wasn't too full. Would visit again.

This is a great pub with a great atmosphere and really clean toilets. We had tea meal and a breakfast here and both were well cooked and good value for money. We found this a nicer Wetherspoon option than the Standing Order down the road. The staff were friendly and helpful and the wine very reasonably priced.
