First port of call as we headed down the Murrayfield mile and what a superb welcome to such a friendly city. Despite being mobbed by 76,000 rugby supporters along with all the other visitors on a super sunny Saturday everyone was super cheerful. Our bar...More

Called here for a nightcap after a lovely meal nearby. Fantastic gin selection and bar staff were really friendly. Prices about the same as most places. It was the end of the night when we called so pub was quiet. Worth a visit.
