Had hoped to find some live music but we were too early and too tired to stay up, so we dropped in here for a glass of wine. Very pleasant spot, with a cheerful bartender and nice ambiance. I do wish they had killed the...More

We decided to grab a pint after hearing the story of Maggie Dickson. The pub was cozy and welcoming. We had questions about the beer on tap and the lady behind the bar let us sample two so we could choose. The live music was...More

Came for the drinks, stayed for the music. The atmosphere was very friendly, the bartenders and the drinks were great, and the live music (courtesy of Michael) made it into a great time. Very easy for a tourist to feel at home.

We arrived around 10pm after a work dinner. The pub was quiet when we got there, with no one sitting in the back. We were a group of around 10, so we went to the back to separate ourselves, and moved two tables together. While...More

We visited the pub on our first evening in Edinburgh. It was six of us and the host immediately found us a place. The food was great and the service excellent. Unfortunately the beers were quite on the expensive side.

We stopped here to rest our feet and grab a quick pint and lunch while walking the Grassmarket. Cute waiter and good bar food. We sat outside—the weather was excellent! Check it out, it's next to the Last Drop.

We ate at Maggie's twice, partly because of its convenience to our Grassmarket flat and the first night because we just needed food...we were somewhat hungry!! Two of us had the lamb the first night, and it was delicious. Fish and chips and the nachos...More

Not i only are the boys behind the bar proper eye candy, they are great bartenders and extremely service minded. The food is beyond amazing, in a surprising twist the haggis went above and beyond our imagination. As modest Vikings we are rarely this excited,...More

Was asked to leave after sitting down outside and ordering a soup as this was not considered a 'substantial meal'. Apparently my business was not good enough. Left and went next door to The Last Drop who were happy to serve me.

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
