“Over priced”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

We had lunch here last week as we were staying in the Murrayfield House which is attached to this restaurant. The service was slow as they were pretty busy with probably not enough staff. I had soup and cheeseboard. My soup was lukewarm and bland. The cheeseboard was £12 and only had 3 cheeses to choose from. We would not return here to eat.

“Great server who doubled as the cook”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

This was 2 doors down from where we rented a flat for 4 nights and we had at least 2 maybe 3 meals here, and quite a few drinks. Servers were lovely one was leaving to go back to Australia who we really liked. We showed up just as it had opened one morning to get brunch and their was only one server in and she doubled as the cook and made us brunch. Very nice place, great server who doubled as our cook for brunch, staff make this place special!

“Yum yum!”
Reviewed 16 March 2014

Lots of lovely food. A good atmosphere and lots of drinks to chose from. A few more cocktails would be nice but plenty of ale and spirits otherwise.

“Good place to stop before kick off.”
Reviewed 8 March 2014

Had a drink here just before the England v Scotland game, just about right not too packed and drinks a reasonably priced manage to watch the Ireland v Wales game before the big event. Good place to go before the game.
