Not the best but not the worse at the same time. Pulled pork was quite fatty and seemed to be a funny cut they used as was not that moist. The brisket was alright. Reasonably priced.

In Edinburgh for business and wandering around the Royal Mile in the early evening sunlight, we happened upon this restaurant. It's downstairs below street level so easy to miss. Decor is corrugated metal with industrial look tables made of steel pipes and heavy wood tops....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
