The "manager" told us he couldn't ask hem to move seats so we were left with no table. I asked for an email address he went to look for one &I came back & said... More

Out with my Hubby and Bestie for a couple of drinks in Leith. Popped in to the Cameo for a Pint. Husband fair taken with the menu, so we had our tea! Menu is not huge, but suited us. I would say that if someone didn't like anything on the menu, I would challenge that! I had a Burger thingy,... More

The decor and ambiance make it a great place to settle for a few drinks of an evening. I recently booked the back section of the pub for my 40th birthday party. The venue was... More

The Cameo is good if you want a few beers (good value prices) and to watch the football etc.. It's also ok 'pub grub', however, I would go somewhere else for food when I am next in the area. We had steak meals which were sub standard. The cuts of meat were not great and the sides big great either.... More

Decided to have a change from our normal Hogmany get together venue and you always worry have you made the right choice. We need not have worried about the Cameo Bar. From start to finish everything was fantastic. The ambiance, the food, the service, and the staff went above and beyond to make your evening truly great. A special mention... More

They never seem to have much food left - we had three vegan chilli and that saw it wiped off the menu - but whatever they do have tends to be very nice.
