Was in Edinburgh for a meeting and needed a bite for lunch before going to the meeting. Popped in for a Bowl of Soup and a drink of juice. Was served a nice drop of lentil soup which I think was homemade. It was very...More
We made a booking online but when we got there, they never had our booking. However, the girls all worked their magic and found us a table. Fabulous staff, tasty food, brilliant service. Would definitely recommend
We ate here on our recent trip to a local holiday rental - it was very busy, but they made a concerted effort and fitted us in for dinner. We all had good tasty pub grub and some nice local beer. Definitely worth a visit.
Visited here on Monday 26th Nov. Having been here previously through the day we thought it best to book. However a Monday night was obviously a quiet night and we had our choice of tables. Really good pub grub - 2 of us had the...More
Found this place whilst exploring the back streets on the way to the centre

Landed here as we had intended to go to the pub next door for lunch but it's been gentrified and didn't suit our needs.
We two different pints of hand pumped real ale, one was fine but the other was cloudy so perhaps not in...More
You see.... the point of a great local is that 1st.... it’s local. Then it needs to go on to be friendly, have a great menu and a bartender who understands the customer. The Melville scores 5/5 on every element and I wish I lived...More
We hadnt realized how many things close relatively early in Edinburgh. Thankfully, we found this place! Bright and modern inside, super comfortable and friendly. We were the only people there, which was weird because the service and good were good. Really convenient if you're staying...More
I had a late lunch at the Melville Bar 6 September. It was not a planned event but stopped there to shelter from the rain. It was just after 3.45 in the afternoon. There other options close by , but we were persuaded by the...More
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
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
