We had spent part of the morning at the Scottish Parliament and I knew that there was a great pub nearby that I had visited previously with work colleagues where we could have lunch. When we arrived at the Kilderkin I was initially confused as I remembered it as being called the 'Jenny Ha's'. The barman resolved the issue by confirming that that had been the name up until a couple of years ago. So I had found the right establishment.
As for lunch it was great. I had 'Bangers and Mash' which was served with three different absolutely excellent sausages. I think that one was wild boar, another pork, and the third was bacon and black pudding. Karen had the daily special which was Chilli Beef in filo pastry parcels served with a spicy cheese sauce, rice and nachos. I also had a pint of Orkney Dark Island beer - wonderful stuff, while Karen had a glass of white wine. The service time was what you would expect for food that was being freshly prepared. As the pub wasn't busy and there was no loud background music we were able to enjoy our drinks and chat before lunch was brought to us.
If ever in the area again at lunchtime we will certainly return.
