My mom and I had lunch here during a visit to Edinburgh. The food was so good! I had the steak pie and Mom had the pan fried salmon. They were both delicious. And, of course, we had to try the deep fried Mars bar. It was good, though a little too sweet for me. Service was excellent. Would definitely go again!

Our group appreciated and were amused by the meanings of words and phrases in Scottish vernacular found in the menu! The food was absolutely delicious and could be described as hearty! Those brave of us had three courses - a decision not to be taken lightly considering the portion sizes. The service was friendly and efficient but unhurried and the food arrived hot where appropriate. Good atmosphere ensured a general feeling of bonhomie especially after the Scottish Coffees!
