The decor is amazing with a real commitment to the theme and even the building itself is pretty awesome. The monster show is really cool and well worth going there even just to see that. The only reason I’m giving it 4/5 is because we...More

Great fun bar, beer is fine! Ordered the sharing platter between two people, the portion size was perfect but the food was so tasteless it couldn’t be finished! I wouldn’t recommend ordering that

The venue is lovely. That’s where the positives stop. The food was really not good. Wings were absolutely soaked in oil but that’s not the worst part. I’ve travelled the world and seldom have to write a negative review but this place really warrants it....More

this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
