Our first visit to Edinburgh in two years. This was where we headed as we got off the train. The pub was heaving but it was a six-nations weekend so we can't complain
I had wanted to book dinner but I was out -voted. I had remembered a previous visit where we HAD booked and our train was late so we pitched up with suitcases. The staff in the restaurant were not in the slightest bit bothered and placed our luggage behind the bar. At the end as it was late they called a taxi for us and didn't charge. The food had been very very good and I wanted to return, but it was not to be.
However on the Sunday we were leaving and wanted somewhere for lunch and this time I DID manage to manoeuvre everyone here. We sat at a table and had Cullen Skink(very good) linguine and fish and chips.The atmosphere was good and it was nice and welcoming when it was snowing outside.
Others have told you all about the wall tiles representing trades from years past. This adds an amount of interest to a pub visit.
This place is very convenient to Waverley. (and they look after your cases!). Probably one of the most unique pubs in Edinburgh
