Where do I start... The food we had was so good, the bouncers are the best, they make you feel super safe when drinking in a country your not familiar with. They have a zero tolerance policy which made me feel very safe. The music...More

Although food is available the majority of people in the pub were there to watch the football on the many television sets. There is a large seating area outside,however, not recommended in January

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
