Portions are generous but that matters little when the flavour is so bad. Ordered a club sandwich, even though the meat was burnt, it only tasted of garlic and rocket. That was as impressive as it got.

Nice wine. Nice steak. Little bit pricey for my liking but perhaps to be expected. Would recommend. Dinner for 2 plus wine was £120

Came for brunch and had traditional English breakfast and the Canadian bacon waffles. The waffles were the best I've ever tasted and the breakfast was lovely. The atmosphere was nice and relaxed and the staff were very friendly and service was very quick. Definitely recommend.

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
