Went here on a Sunday - good menu...until it was revealed that the Sunday specials were all that was available. Still a good choice tho - roast looked good, but chap next to us said it was a little chewy. I had very good parsnip soup with a deep fried Stilton cube. Pan fried coley with butternut squash sauce and roast potatoes also very good. Worth a visit but a little pricey.

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.
