Had dinner here on our first day in Edinburgh. Food was good and the portion was generous. Service was friendly but not too quick as the place was very busy.

I loved the interiors and enjoyed a tasty and flavorsome meal! The staff was friendly and the Haggis (my very first one) was delicious! Will definitely recommend this pub!
