Lively and atmospheric, good food, slightly dippy waiter and a tad too noisy but enjoyable experience

Main bar manager clearly has no customer service experience with the rude manor in which he addresses the customers. Really good food let down by an unnecessarily grumpy staff member.More

Been here so many times now over the last few years and it's consistently my favourite burger! Great selection of toppings and really tasty sweet potato fries. It is a loud and hectic atmosphere (also great just for drinking with friends) but the staff do...More

The hamburgers at Clerk's were so delicious that we ate here twice during our week in Edinburgh. The meat is spiced and there are several choices of toppings. My favorite is the bleu cheese. The £6.50 price is low for a burger of this quality....More

The waitress was amazing, though the bar staff didn't seem very capable when I was paying the bill. Vegetarian chilli was decidedly average. The Belgian waffle with ice cream made up for it somewhat.More
