This pub only re opened this week- it's in William street not Melville street. It's really chic with a great atmosphere - very friendly and not intimidating to go in for a drink or a meal on your own. There are three pubs in close proximity and they all offed something a bit different - this has a modern make over with great staff, good food and very good opening hours . I'm a regular to Edinburgh and I'm pleased to say I will be revisiting - the whole area has a lot to offer and this is a nice addition

There's such an array of wonderful places to eat in the centre of Edinburgh and around the West End, that your food and welcome really needs to be up to scratch to compete. Unfortunately, this really wasn't the greatest food though I can imagine it is a good place if you fancy a drink and a chat.

Had a very tasty and inexpensive lunch here with a few friends. Located in a very quaint and pleasant street in the Heart of Edinburgh. Staff and customers were friendly and I would definitely recommend a visit.

Had a 2 course lunch - food was excellent- my partner (who is a head chef to trade) is still raving about the quality of the food. Very good value and worth a visit!
Staff very friendly too - well done!
