Maybe the best cullen skink we had in Edinburgh! Found this place while we were walking around and just wanted a light meal. They were kind enough to fit us in without a reservation. Fantastic soup, really creamy & delicious! Would definitely go back.

Visited for drinks only so unable to comment on the restaurant area or the quality of the food. This is one of the oldest pubs in Edinburgh and the bar area has the traditional atmosphere of an old fashioned drinking den. Good vibes and very...More

nice restaurant with nice athmosphere. here you can feel the Scottish way... had a dinner with colleagues based on salmon and fillet. Meat was very lovely but salmon in this case was not so gorgeus like a fresh fish.

Visited for a drink on a Saturday evening and the place was bustling and atmospheric. Found a seat near the bar and enjoyed a drink while listening to the live music. Staff were friendly and enjoy the vibe of the whole place. Would recommend.

Visited as one of Edinburghs older bars, what a kip, poor quality drink, poor service, sticky tables, could not wait to leave, what a shame not making the very most of having one of the oldest boozers in the Cuty.

We found it on a search engine, tried it and were VERY pleased. The shepherd's pie was the best I've had in the UK except for a remote pub in '79. The fish and chips was perfect. Prices are "in line" and the atmosphere was...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.
