We've walked by this place quite a few times but never when we felt we could do it justice on an empty stomach. Having stopped now, we'll be back with empty stomachs more often! Choices are pretty simple - White or brown, three different sizes, a few sauces and spreads to choose from. We both went with mid-size brown bread,... More

They have a very simple menu; white or brown roll, small med or large, and with a few toppings and sauces to choose from. They have a few seats inside. I've often seen it queued out. It's really fast to pick one up, and they are delicious filled rolls that are a bit different from the usual. A good place... More

Excellent for a lunch time bite. The meat was delicious and tasty, especially with the addition of apple sauce or chilli cheese!

I recently visited Oink after reading all the fantastic reviews and kind of felt a bit disappointed with it in the end. The roll was a little dry and nothing special, the pork was quite salty and tough rather than succulent. I've definitely had worse but I've also had a lot better. So don't set your hopes too high and... More

I was researching somewhere to eat for lunch and found this little place. I thought what a great idea for a lunch time bite. The menu was very simple to order from and had just the right amount of options. I had the grunter which had plenty of meat in the roll. A quirky little place with seating available. The... More

Staying in Old Town

Neighbourhood Profile
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 royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
