What's to do around Waverly Station at night

We have to drop off our rental car at Waverly Station before 8:00 PM. We will be taking the overnight train to London that leaves at 11:40 PM. What is there to do at that time of night within walking distance of the station?

Any advice would be helpful, Thanks

I wouldn't have thought there was much shopping available after 8 pm. But the pubs mentioned are good selections (particularly the Guildford Arms). If the weather co-operates, you can take a nice walk up and down the Royal Mile to see the Castle, Holyrood Palace, the Scottish Parliament and all the other historic buildings.

There's also Mary King's Close, an allegedly haunted street that has been excavated and tours are available in the evenings.

Surely they didn't come all the way from Texas just to watch a film in a multiplex cinema!!?? Odd suggestion.

Guildford Arms is a good suggestion though - nice selection of Scottish beers. Or go see some live music, go for a meal, just wander around and enjoy the city or whatever.

It might be a film they don't see in the USA. Or they might want to see it again. Or they might want somewhere warm to sit for 2.5 hours that isn't a pub. Or whatever.
