Decided to try Haggis and wasn’t disappointed. It was delicious and their cheese boards excellent. Delicious food.

This was a really good place to eat, very busy so be prepared to have to book. Waiting staff were friendly although very slow to take our order and even slower to deliver the food!!

We popped in for a lunchtime tipple on Saturday, I had a large G&T and my wife had a large vodka and tomato juice, these two drinks came to nearly £18, a bit pricey?

We went to the Doric on the recommendation of our hotel. The food was great. We had the haggis bon bons, fish and chips and Shepherd's Pie. All of it was delicious! We continually asked our server, Callum, questions about Edinburgh and Scotland, Tartans and...More

Busy when I went in on a Saturday but served quickly by friendly staff. Managed to get a seat and enjoyed a very good, if a little pricey, pint of beer. Added to my list of pubs to visit again in Edinburgh.

Nice staff and nice atmosphere. It's close to the station and the waverly bridge. The food is good and you got choiche enough. The waiter gave us the tip to try an other beer than we ordered, it was more local and should taste better....More

Very friendly staff. We had the Christmas menu, which is not usually my first choice in restaurants over the holiday period, however this was exceptionally good. The food was beautifully presented, hot and plentiful. The wine list was also very good and not too pricey....More

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look

Hi I'm afraid we do not have a meeting room per se, we have a separate wine bar but this is open to the bar and restaurant area.
