“Basic food, well cooked.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Sat outside here in a very cramped seating area. Tin chairs and small tables don't exactly appeal. However, we gave it a try, drinks were reasonably priced for Edinburgh. The menu was small and basic but very appealing, two of our party had chicken and bacon salad which was really nice, with a lovely dressing. The other two had the Highlander Chicken and the Scampi - both of which were hot, well cooked and nicely presented. All the meals were under at tenner so pleased with the value.

“Nice pub, good atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

This is a nice pub for a drink with a good selection of real ales, wines and large selection of whiskey. Nice staff, good service. Prices are not cheap 2 glasses of Chardonnay for a little less than £10 but they were large glasses - you can't have both ways as this stops problematic customers frequenting the place. Easy to find on Rose Street. Didn't try the food but it looked good.
