Given the craziness of August with the Fringe Festival and the Military Tattoo, we felt this was one of the best pub meals we had in Edinburgh. Top fish and chips, quick and obliging service by Carly and Danielle and good coffee. Thanks for the...More

Visited after a long journey to this lovely city. Very close to our hotel so made sense. The menu looked good and as there was a veggie haggis on offer, we decided to stay and eat. The food was good and plenty of it ,...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
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
