Description: The Queens Arms has been an Edinburgh fixture for many years; the latest incarnation finds it reborn as a gastropub, although long-time customers will be pleased to know that the renovation has preserved the layout and most of the original features. This new look is charming customers and critics alike ��� they've recently scooped Best Gastropub at the 2010 DRAM (Drinks Retailing and Marketing) Awards. It's no wonder with the food they have on offer ��� Scottish classics, really, but with a modern twist. Dishes like the Ayreshire slow-cooked pork belly, served with a haggis fritter and colcannon exemplify their dedication to sourcing quality local produce. It's not only the food that customers are praising though ��� The Queens Arms also boasts friendly and efficient service and a solid offering of whiskies, cocktails and wine and beer (including several real ales). As well as serving delicious meals, the d��cor - quirky original and new features, as well as cosy booth style seating - and the TV screens showing local matches mean this is an excellent place to while away a lazy afternoon in the city.

First time visit for lunch with friends. Inside the place is really cosy and authentic looking. Had a great table in the corner, some chairs good to sit in others you would need a cushion purely for height! Choice of food good, presentation of food first class and quality and taste of food excellent. Really enjoyed visiting the Queens Arms, would most definitely go back. Waiting staff were very courteous and helpful

Really good Scottish pub in a great location, off George St. Classy and friendly, ideal for overseas tourists.

This pub was down the cellar so from the outside it is easy to miss it. It does not look particularly good either. But it was one of the best fish and chips I have ever had and my partner had Angus Burger which was absolutely amazing. The meat was so tender with loads of flavors. The staff was looking after us even though the pub was absolutely packed - it was World Cup final. I would go back any time.

Went for a pint here 3 of the 5 nights my husband and I were in Scotland. Had an amazing time watching the World Cup here, great pints, wonderful staff, and an amazing atmosphere. Only downside was the last night the whole pub smelled like vomit as someone had become ill in the pub, however...it is a pub so is to be expected. Wonderful place, highly recommend it!
