We had a great afternoon tea at the Globe. Very good value and the quality of food was very good. Staff were attentive but were not always in your face

It's an all right place and the drinks are reasonably priced. Sometimes it's a bit hard to hear the others at the table.

We visited the Globe bar for an afternoon of rugby and football, there was great ambiance with the vaulted ceilings, multiple televisions, great variety of beer on tap and excellent service. QQQQQQ

We were here with a group, one of the only places we could take a break from the fringe and watch a game. The beer is probably the cheapest we found in the city and the bar staff and bouncers were chatty and friendly.

As it says on the tin. A small bar with loud music and VERY cheap booze! A good night out if you're drunk and want a dance. It's the worst bar for service though. We arrived when it was quiet and the bar staff are...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
