All I've heard is how nasty bad haggis is. But the restaurants in Scotland must have toned it down to where it is just ground meat and oatmeal. This restaurant makes haggis balls. They taste good. Of course, Guinness helps wash it down. Maggie's had...More

Great pub... Friendly atmosphere. I had the fish and chips which was very fresh and delicious. I recommend a Crabbies ginger beer to wash it all down :-)

This is a cracking little pub, clean and traditional with fantastic food and great service. Sharnel served us and she was really welcoming and is a credit to the establishment. Thanks for the good advice Sharnel! Will come back for sure.

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
