The deep fries Mars bar is good taste, I went on Tuesday and it was empty, the service is not really good and friendly, but the place was clean and tidy.

Went for the see fried mars bar (and a snickers in the end to). Place was clean and staff friendly. £2.50 for a mars bar deep fried seemed a little pricey. But you don’t get them everywhere. Snickers was nicer than Mars though.

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
