Just had an evening out with some work colleagues and had a great night.

This bar has had a remarkable make over and has gone from a dark and dingy place to a bright, welcoming venue.

The food is excellent and the staff very friendly. There was 8 of us and we all had something different from the menu and all had the same view of the food - very tasty and good value.

The staff were as good as the food, very welcoming and helpful.

A good selection of beers as well just rounded everything off.

Will be back.

Good food. Happy service. I would recommend this as a lunch venue. Not too busy. Great burgers. I have been twice and the food arrives hot and quickly, staff dont fuss around you so you can relax and enjoy.

Popped in here for lunch with the girls from work a few weeks ago and plan to make it our regular " Fat Friday " location. HAd a burger and chips which was beautifully presented. Such friendly staff, really good hearty pub food, nice atmosphere and busy with lots of office type people. Lovely big glass windows looking out onto the cute cobbles of William St, lots of little boutique shops nearby and only a few minutes walk from Princes Street. Can't wait to go back and try dessert and cocktails!

Recently refurbished with new owners/management and amazing food (highly recommend the haggis scotch egg and the pear dessert)!

The staff are the kind of people you want to hang out with after hours - not only are they friendly and fun but they know how to run a bar. To any Thailand enthusiasts, they have Singha in addition to Tennents! Awesome service - worth a visit!
