The menu is not extensive, but it caters for all tastes and the food is very good. The portions are big and the service is fast, with very reasonable prices. Visited here a couple of weeks ago before the Fringe Festival and the service was fast, but didn't expect it to be the same when the Fringe was on, so well done ! Pub Grub with a twist !

We came in for some traditional Scottish food and were not disappointed. The Haggis was excellent and we also liked some of the other local fare. The regular burger was just ok and the menu is very limited - not a lot of options if you dont like local pub food. Service was ok but it can be slow if the place is full. Overall it delivers a good meal in a nice pub for a decent price so you cant go wrong.

Great pub with good beer and speedy pizza for a pound on a Monday night.

There's nothing to dislike!

Had a few days in Edinburgh last week and discovered Kilderkin, a bar on Canongate just before the Royal mile. Firstly we headed up the Royal mile to eat at a bar that I had researched only to find they stopped serving food at 8pm. Disappointed we wandered back down and got to Kilderkin. It was actually only a few doors away from our apartment. So we saw a notice "£1.00 a pizza special" Flabbergasted we went for it and ordered a 12 inch Margarita pizza adding Rabbit and pepperoni! Wow it was really really good. sated, we stayed a while and the atmosphere was truly lovely. We decided this would be our "local" for the rest of our stay and it was. Pub quiz Tuesday, bizarre banjo jam on Wed and then sad afternoon farewell to Edinburgh lunchtime drinks Thursday. great place great staff (thanks to Hillary who only just started), and the whirlwind that seemed to be the manager. Great people great pub and great food... What more can I say.
