Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A lovely place. We had lunch there it was so good we went back for dinner. The food was excellent. The treasure trove of single malts was also great. I ticked off some of the rarer ones. Give the hoop of destiny a try if...you like whisky! We will be back next time we are in Edinburgh.More

The bar in the West End has a great atmosphere with very friendly and attentive staff. The wine I chose was lovely and we ordered Cullen Skink and steak pie and chips. All of which were very tasty and very fresh. The food was the...best we have had in Edinburgh. We would definitely recommend for a visit.More

Came here with friends on a cold Monday night. The place was warm and very busy, The food from a wide range of menu were well presented and made you want to eat them. The service was quick and the food very hot. The staff...were very attentive, regularly checked on everything, took further orders for drinks and were quick to respond to any request. You can understand why the place is so popular even on a Monday night..Our party had Kedgere, Chilli bowl, fish and chips and vegetarian haggis,neeps and tatties. The apple pies were also delicious All were great. The beers and wines were good too. Many thanks to all.More

Daughter just bought a flat in area and visited for family bar meal. WHAT a hidden gem. It’s got all the feel, atmosphere, looks of a country pub in the middle of the hills, full of community people and very warm. Can’t believe such a...pub is in that area. Congratulations to the owners and the team. Make me want to move to the city even thought we are in the countryside. Also a great rugby and whisky theme to the place along with great Scottish food pub grub. Thumbs up but want to keep it a secret.More

Went to the Teuchtars last night. We were in the bunker downstairs as we were a party of 20. The staff were amazing. The food delicious. I had haggis, neeps and potato with a whiskey cream sauce. Definitely 5 stars from me.

My daughter and I were visiting Edinburgh for the first time and we stopped in for dinner one evening. All I can say is that we were treated so wonderfully, as if we were regulars visiting for the hundredth time. We each had a burger...and a beer. The food was excellent as was the service. We felt so comfortable and so well treated. I highly recommend a visit.More

We decided to get lost during our time in Edinburgh and have a lunch in the first place that will catch our eyes. Teuchters was that place and wow what a time we had! Service is top class, and I mean it has been a...while since I have had such a good tfeeling from every single person working in a bar/restaurant. We had to try local Haggis, Neeps and Tatties and some local beer. And you should as well! Honestly, don't wait. Go there, have good chat, have fun, have sweet time!More

We usually come to the bar with our dogs, friends and family; and today the rugby was playing, we know dogs aren’t allowed on match days at Murrayfield but don’t follow rugby and didn’t know Scotland were playing away so in the pouring rain we...arrive and get told dogs aren’t allowed, given the rain outside was horrendous, we asked if we could stand in the doorway at the back, told it was ok, we stood there for 45 mins not causing any issue and had two pints, other staff spoke to the dogs and as such we assumed it was okay as it was confirmed by who we assumed was the manager, we go to get a 2nd pint and the barmaid barks at us “are you the one with the dogs?”, “if so, we can’t serve you”. It was as if I was under the influence the manner she spoke to me. Despite explaining her colleague said it was ok, she barked at us we have to leave. Without a fight, we did. Appreciate rules but it wasn’t super busy and causing no issues. Another member of staff said it was ok. She could have asked in a nicer manner and we would have still left miffed but understanding the rules, the manner in which she spoke (barked at) to people who regularly frequent was rude, uncalled for and cost them a customer. We went over to the Green Room, dogs welcome and friendlier staff. We attend regularly and have food but won’t be moving forward, which is a shame, but people buy people and with that attitude, I won’t be back.More

We stumbled upon this place while waiting to check into our hotel. We both loved the menu and the food was top notch. I had the seafood board, which was exceptional value for money. We would recommend to anyone to try it.

Let me be clear. I've been visiting Teuchters regularly for years although I don't think I'd be described as a regular. It is my favourite pub in Edinburgh by a city mile. The ambience speaks for itself, and their beer, service and food was always...good. But recently, I'm pretty sure they've upped their game further. Tonight my friend and I were served different seafood offerings. Generous, imaginative and full of flavour. We chose a random bottle of merlot which just turned out to be gorgeous. They have loads of friendly staff behind the bar, and on the floor who are discreet but observant to your every need. Excellent service, few empties left on tables, a very friendly and enjoyable experience that unsurprisingly attracts a great clientele. Well done Teuchters. Plandee.More

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable

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
