Came here for food and a drink. There seem to be several different parts to this place which can be a wee bit confusing. This review is for the pub meals area, I guess you would call it. Not sure what the official name is. On the far left as you look at the building from the street. We didn't know there was a restaurant until we were leaving!
Generally this is pretty much exactly what you would expect from any reasonably modern pub that serves food in a city. Usual selection of international type food and slightly posh burgers.
Some particular plusses are a slightly wider range of food and drinks than usual, and the view over the bridges. The staff were friendly and attentive. Busy, and atmosphere was nice.
Disadvantages were that, after a wait, we were given seats that had no view of the bridges and although they were OK, we could have been anywhere really. To be fair this was because the place was busy, and the staff did check if this was alright. More importantly the food was slow coming, and wasn't that great. Partner couldn't finish her noodles which were average at best, and my veggie burger with cheese was OK but nothing more really.
I would come here for food + drink if I lived round the corner, but not worth the trip from Edinburgh.
Importantly it looks like there is a separate restaurant. This might be completely different.
