A friend told us that you get a good 2 course lunch here and some great wines by the glass. It was a good value lunch at £12.95 for two courses but the pate and fish cakes were very average both garnished with mixed leaf...More

This is a great venue for a few drinks before or after watching the rugby at Murrayfield. It's in a great central location, is nicely laid out and reasonably priced.

Lovely cellar bar in the centre of Edinburgh. Previously visited a couple of years ago, and so we decided to pay another visit this time on visiting the city again. Always busy, cosy little tables in the corner, with large variety of beers, wines and...More

Went with a couple of friends for dinner. Good wine list and the beer drinker amongst us was happy too. Food was satisfactory. Nothing to complain about but nothing wow about it either. Perfectly fine. Service was attentive without being too intrusive. Atmosphere is good...More

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along

Oldest wine cellar in Scotland. Steeped in history, stone caves, an oval bar and separate dining area. Seafood, steak, Scottish fare. Remarkable wine list and warm Scottish hospitality a speciality!
