We managed to stumble across this little pub whilst having a wander around the city. The atmosphere inside was lovely, it was very chilled out. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The place is decorated brilliantly, there are photos from movies all around the walls, they were even showing a movie on the back wall. We only stopped for a couple of drinks but next time we are around Edinburgh we will definitely eat here as the food smelt delicious!

We went here on a saturday night, it was fairly busy but we got seats in one of the rooms off the bar, unfortunatly not a famous bed :-( the barmaid was so friendly when we couldnt decide what to drink she gave us samples to help us choose! Also very reasonably prices, £7 for 2 pints and a bag of crisps! Will certainly visit this pub again!!!

A peaceful haven on a busy Main Street, not far from the centre of Edinburgh. Attentive and courteous bar staff ensure a pleasant experience. Free fussless Wi-Fi cater caters for the connected visitor. Bar menu is varied and reasonably priced. Will be back. ....... Go for it

It's just around the corner from me. It's hit and miss. Sometimes it's great with live music and a great mix of people. Other times it's full of pretentious morons. The food is good pub grub at a reasonable price. However, the beer is sometimes a little too pricey. All in all it's worth a visit.

I'm not a veggie but my boyfriend is so it's great to see a bar doing an extensive vegetarian menu as well as traditional pub food. We waited a while for the food and there is no table service but this was all forgotten when our food arrived. I had the beef chilli and my boyfriend the veggie pizza with veggie sausage on it, both enormous portions, we had to be rolled out the door. Have been back again since!
