  • Fantastic pub on the Royal Mile very near Edinburgh Castle. Cozy, traditional interior. Delicious food, try the scotch egg or split pea soup. Good selection of beer on tap and a friendly staff.
  • The place is very well located, near the Edinburgh Castle. I was hungry and fortunately they have food, a combo of soup and sandwich... good!! The place is cool, I definitely recommend it.
  • This is place where Timberbush tours are leaving. If you haven't done it. It's a must! You can visit highlands, locks and many more with timerbush. Highly recommend.

  • Decent pint of Guinness if you're coming back from the Castle
  • The scotch pie is quite tasteless.
  • Came in on a cold, windy, rainy day. Garlicbread with cheeze and tha days soup was a perfect finish. Joint with an IPA from the tap!
