Having eaten here four times since it's opening a few months ago I've been impressed every time, not just with the great tasting food but also the friendly welcome and lively atmosphere. I hope they will soon add Edinburgh brewer's Bellfield beer to their menu...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
