Service was good. Chicken wings were also good. Had a burger which was not as good. Drenched in sauce and came on a wet plate so the bottom was soggy. I think I was unlucky and would give it another go.

Blink & you could miss this hidden gem of a restaurant. The portions are huge and we could easily have shared but hey lesson learnt! We thoroughly enjoyed the food, which was reasonably priced. This place is a carnivores dream!

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
