Popped in for breakfast recently but the whole experience was over shadowed by a rude waitress who rolled her eyes when twice we asked for clean tea cups after she had bought dirty ones, shame really as otherwise the food and drink was pretty good...More

We ordered pizza. And that was the worst pizza in my entire life. Sweet pizza with sugar. Wet with a lot off cheese. Not crispy at all. If you like garbage food this is the right place.

Stopped here for breakfast on our last full day. The pancakes were actually quite good, very fluffy, and my wife had the full English Breakfast, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Very nice decor inside, comfortable, with a racing motif. Quickly served, good staff. We will return.

Good venue on the high street. Good space for solo business trip quick dinner. Cold American beer and good range of burgers etc. But my server wasn't too familiar with the range of beer or food. I chose the sliders - 3 mini burgers with...More

We called in as we didn't want a huge lunch. Decor stylish and clean. The welcome wasn't exactly swift and it wasn't that busy. I ordered a club sandwich without tomato, it arrived with tomato so I had to dismantle it. On the plus side...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

Filling Station coast to coast American restaurant and bar, has been created by a team of people who genuinely love good quality food, drinks and good times! No doubt you're thinking, well doesn't everybody want that? It's true many people do, but we have genuinely struggled to find somewhere that actually delivers all of these things. So our solution was simple - let's do it ourselves, the result is Filling Station. When it's cooked well using fabulous ingredients, nothing beats authentic American food. Very few can resist a cocktail mixed by a real bartender who knows exactly how to blend flavours to achieve a perfect balance of strong, weak, sharp and sweet
