Enjoyed an evening with my student daughter here. Great student prices on selected drinks. Had a window seat which was great for people watching. Live music ( Montana ?) easy listening/singalong. Very pleasant evening .

There was no soap in any of the dispensers, or anywhere else, in the men's toilet. Makes you wonder.

Is it a bar? Is it a live music lounge? Is it a restaurant? This place needs to devise a clear strategy. We went in to eat and drink, but you have to stay one side of the bar to eat. The live music in the next room is loud enough to be heard in our room, but it was... More

We popped in for a couple of drinks before heading to one of the shows at the festival and so glad we did! Lovely atmosphere and great live music. A good choice of drinks and we really wanted to stay longer and next time we are in the city will definitely pop in again and sample some of the tasty... More

Unfortunately I have not had much luck with the food here. It was a let down but I guess that why it was discounted. If you do want a quick bite in the centre, the chips were okay.

I had a quick, cheap, good meal of a mixed salad and some very nice tiger prawns in some tasty sauce. Maybe it was because I was eating early but the food was 25% cheaper than I expected.

Called in for a couple of drinks. Nice clean bar area with lovely decor. Blue Moon beer went down well with hubby and Espresso Martini was supers and £6.55 which when compared to a lot of bars was really good value. Main reason for staying longer than we intended was the amazing singer who was on. Brian Kelly, not much... More

We went here for a lunch as a midday break from the National Museum of Scotland just up the road. Husband had spaghetti and I had aubergine with couscous. The food was very average, but we weren't really looking for anything special at the time. There was a notice on the window advertising 20% discount- but I hadn't realised it... More

The staff was really friendly and helpful and the wine (white wine from Chile) was very tasty - however the food was a disappointment. The steak was stringy and tasted like nothing. Both steaks were ordered meadium rare but one was definetly well done. The fries were ok but the vegetables (except for the carrots) were raw. The live music... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
