We came back the next night, after accidently wandering in on Friday night for a drink. Great and friendly staff! Warm atmosphere! We're coming back to Edinburgh in April, and for sure we'll end up at No1 again! Thanks!

Honestly, the best steak pie and fish and chips my family has ever had. We ate as a group and Blair was kind enough to seat us all together. Food was hot, quick, and delicious! Highly recommend!

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
