Great pub! Had lunch with husband on a busy weekday, only one barmaid on, and she was probably most efficient server I've ever seen. Food was hearty and fresh. Good selection of beer on tap.

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
