We received a gift voucher for a three course meal at stac polly from a friend. I had a tartlet and caramelised onion starter, which was very full of flavour. Main meal of beef and black pudding which was cooked to perfection. Gin and tonic...More

Visited after being gifted a Groupon voucher and was very impressed with the menu. Flavour combinations made the dishes very enjoyable. The pheasant main was really good and the sauce we lovely. Restaurant was a bit on the chilly side. Would recommend.

It is a couple of years since the last visit. And so it was great to be welcomed so warmly by the staff. Much Christmas activity, of course, but we got a nice table for two and the Christmas diners (clearly office parties!) were in...More

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The

Unsure. Best to phone and find out. 1st n 2nd are public holidays in Scotland. However given the location they maybe open for Scottish themed events.
