Description: A welcoming local pub situated in the heart of Morningside. Our friendly staff will serve up a varied selection of the best Scottish craft beers, or if you're not a beer person, maybe one of our mouth-watering cocktails, or something from our extensive spirit and whisky gantry. Between 11.30 am and 9.00 pm, we also serve up an extensive and reasonably priced menu of delicious home-made food, which includes our much loved burgers and sizzling fajitas; and if you're out and about early on (or need some help recovering from the night before...), we serve a hearty Scottish breakfast until 1pm (3pm weekends), and fresh coffee all day. Sports fan? The Waiting Room is the place to be for all sporting events. With 5 large TVs and a 6-foot big screen, we show all major football, rugby, golf and tennis tournaments, and our staff are always willing to accommodate requests when possible (we can have up to three different things on at one time). We look forward to seeing you soon!

A group of us went here on a Saturday and had a lovely afternoon. We enjoyed drinks and food and were served by lovely staff. No complaints at all, varied menu, usual pub grub but reasonably priced and well presented. Will definitely be back.

Stopped off here for some lunch whilst walking through Morningside and was really pleasantly surprised.

The staff were really warm and attentive.
The food was delicious, in fact I was really impressed with the food; the chilli nachos are a must have, they were so tasty and the portion was really big, big enough 2 of us shared one portion.

We had the £5 lunch deal and although I wasn't expecting much for the price, the burger was one of the nicest I've had and the Mac and cheese was delicious too.

For the price I really can't complain. The atmosphere is really nice in the restaurant and it is really comfortable to be in.

We go in to the waiting room when we are in the area and have not been disappointed yet. They have a great selection of cask and keg real ales and the food is good pub grub. Very good fish and chips and tasty chilli con carne. The staff are always helpful and friendly.

Just had a lovely lunch with friends.
The loaded burger was excellent, and our server recommended having some of the celeriac coleslaw with it - really nice.
Place was just beginning to fill up for an afternoon of rugby.
They had a good selection of tasty Scottish beers on tap.
Relaxing, friendly - would recommend for a coffee or a pint.

The Waiting Room is our local pub in the area. They have introduced special beers and ales from Scotland for a while now. I highly recommend other pub goers to sample these beers & ales soon.
As we have been in the pub at numerous occasion for lunch or dinner,it's great value for money, food is fab and service wonderful.
