This pub is probably more suited to those who are dining particularly at lunch time when we visited. There was a good selection of ales and service was good. Well located on the Royal Mile close to major tourist attractions.

We stopped in for lunch while walking around town. The place was absolutely packed to the gills. We were able to order and get a great table right off the bar. Food was good and the beer was cold. Perfect.

My husband and I stopped here several times while walking up and down the mile. We never actually ordered food, just had beers. We didn’t have the opportunity to sit outside but it’s a cool place inside.

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
