“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

My boyfriend and I went here for a late dinner after climbing to Arthur's Seat. We split and order of fish and chips- the best we've ever had!- and then had the rhubarb creme brulee for dessert, which was also perfect. We decided to come back for brunch the next day and were not disappointed. I had the smoked salmon benedict and my boyfriend had the croque madam, We both wished we could have eaten more and ended up taking two lattes to go which were also lovely. The atmosphere is very friendly and the decor is warm and cozy. There were only two waitresses on for a full house but they were very efficient. We'll be returning for dinner tonight!

“very good pub/restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2013

we read about this place in the local magazine "leather" as we are fairly local ourselves. We walked down leith walk from the city centre but there is very poor choice of places to eat on the "walk".
I thought the menu was very different to the usual pub grub rubbish in most pubs these days and very refreshing to see this, I went for the rabbit burger and my wife the veggie burger (there is a lot more than burgers on the menu), it was delicious but i did not have any room for the lovely sounding sweets on offer.
The price just a tad over 30 quid for 2 mains and a 3 drinks, about average i think and we will be back
