Went on the spur of the moment and very glad that we did. Very nice decor, professional and friendly staff and excellent food at ridiculously low prices. A good varied menu with well cooked dishes and very generous helpings. We will certainly be back.

Lovely to sit outside and have a drink. Food was not unpleasant, average pub food. Limited menu probably for ease, pasta was too spicy (should have asked first) and portions were probably more suited to lunch than dinner. Reasonably priced.

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of
second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for
just a few pounds. In August the student population is
replaced by vast numbers of boisterous visitors here
for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
