Lovely meal and great service. We all enjoyed the lunch we had. The only downside was that it was very wet and cold outside and the room itself wasn't very warm.

This place was absolutely pinned by 10.30 on the final day of the Autumn Internationals, but super efficient staff sorted the crowds out with excellent breakfasts and great beers. After a win for Scotland over Japan, we headed back to watch more rugby and have...a meal. Great shout! Atmosphere was fab again (with a bagpiper!) and food and service top notch. So- not difficult to make the decision to head back for brunch on the Sunday, and have my flat white needs more than adequately met! Thanks to Neil and all the staff who worked so hard, with good humour, to help us all have a cracking weekend!More

We stayed in Edinburgh to attend a concert and our plans changed when we decided to just have a meal and drinks. I found the Caley sample room on the internet and read the review on google, facebook and tripadvisor. We were in a local...hotel and walked down. I booked a table via the website. The pub is gorgeous and welcoming atmosphere. Tables are socially distanced and covid regulations are in place. We both opted for the beef sunday lunch and were not disappointment. Outstanding roast and well worth the 14.95. All with fresh vagetables. Drinks are reasonably priced. They do have craft beers and gins to interest all tastes. The wine was excellent with the roast. Would return if back in the area. And fully recommend.More

Me and my partner have been to the Caley Sample Rooms 3 times in the past few months, first time for drinks only and following 2 for food and drinks. We have always been met by a very welcoming staff member and they have always...accommodated our seating requests (we like the booths). The staff are very friendly and helpful. The food is really lovely so definitely recommend. We will definitely be back soon :)More

We loved our experience because Neil is a great waiter. Also I like booze. The interior decoration is cool!

Have nipped in for a quick pint (not the cheapest, but good choices and well-kept) while looking after the grandson – he is normally asleep. Really friendly staff, helpful with the lad in the pram. Useful local. Always enjoy nipping in!

Lovely food in a relaxed atmosphere. The haggis bonbons were a firm favourite and the grill will challenge even the heartiest of diner….
