    Children menu not the great options .My Children not very fussy but could not eat the dinner as lots of green herbs in a mash which wasn't even mentioned, not diffrent option with a vegetable just red cabbage. Adult meal nice but the waiting time was a ridiculous 50 min .My Children managed to finish where our dinner was served. Would not recommend for families.

    Menus really need reprinting as the ones in use were a bit shabby. Food was overall good but certain things were bland. Also, the noise level increased gradually which was not very enjoyable.

    Cullen skink starter was fab. Beef & ale pie main: no taste of ale, not really a pie - pile of meet piled on puffed pastry shape & topped with pastry piece ie meat was not cooked in pastry. Masses of beef & of good quality but overwhelming! Staff were lovely as individuals and appeared to care but service was slow and ended up paying at till on way out as bull didn’t appear despite there being more staff than punters. Maybe some training for them?

    This was our first visit to Edinburgh, it was as my husband’s birthday and wanted to try some Scottish cuisine. We both had haggis parcels the the Scottish steak with Edinburgh Ale pie both were delicious and filling, hubby then had the Cranachan parfait which again was delicious I had as too full to eat anymore.. the waiter recommended a whisky for my husband to try . The staff very friendly and helpful the setting very pretty and welcoming

    It was an amazing experience. We were greeted quickly and cordially. The service was fast and friendly. We started with the haddock soup which was delicious, followed by the salmon entree and the Eggplant entree. Both were magnificent. The dessert was the fig ginger pudding. FANTASTIC! We would recommend this highly!

    Extremely disappointing service. We’ve asked for one thing from the menu, they said that they run out off, asked for another thing, not available either. In a normal or in a respectable restaurant I should have been told about what’s not in the menu. 7 things in the menu! How hard could it be? At least the drinks should have been on the house. Good job, “great” service.
