Good comfort food just like they advertise. I had the pumpkin and sage pie, which came out huge and my husband had the shepherds pie. This place is a cozy little place with plenty of atmosphere. The food was tasty, I wish Americans would learn...More

This was a recommendation from my Cousin who lives in Edinburgh, really good call, very much comfort food of the type your mum used to cook. The Venison Stew was great

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
