Had an amazing meal here, although, the service was a bit average. However, I would go again. The story behind the pub is truly fascinating and worth reading about

When asking about an item on the menu, was told couldn't answer as cook's english was not good enough to ask him. Hamburger came out so burned that it was hard to cut with a knife. Premium whisky was ordered and they brought 1 dram with 4-5 ice cubes (we did not ask for ice). They brought replacement dram which was suspiciously much lighter in color and greatly reduced peaty aroma. When ask if they just removed the ice, they denied it. Would not recommend.

Can only say this is a must have breakfast for anyone staying on or near Grassmarket.

The full scottish breakfast is fab and left us full till late in the evening despite eating at 10 in the morning.

Staff are attentive and courteous and atmosphere friendly

We visited on Friday 8th November for food when staying in Edinburgh. I would recommend to anyone. A little short on tables perhaps but we managed to get one. Ordered food, it was there in five minutes tops, it was really really nice, and the staff were very friendly. No complaints from me!

During our trip to Edinburgh we popped into this little pub and ended up having a truley fantastic night!!! The food is scrumptious with the 'Maggie's Big Breakfast' destroying any other competition for a full cooked breakfast! The staff are absolutely lovely and very attentive! We highly recommend this delightful little pub and our favourite within the Grassmarket area!
