Dropped into this bar with a friend on a mid-week night during the fringe. This is Edinburgh's busiest month of the calendar during which bars and restaurants undoubtedly see their biggest profits. That in mind you would imagine they would be some what prepared. We...More

We booked the downstairs function room for a birthday party and everyone had a great night. The room was a fab size for us (about 25) but could also hold more. We were allowed to order in our own food and play our own music...More
