We stayed at a nearby hotel and after a long day of driving, this place was a delight. The staff was lovely and the food good. The bar is quite beautiful inside. I had the mac and cheese with bacon and it was delicious!

I have walked past this bar hundreds of times and had never been in. A friend suggested we go in and I actually really liked it. It's cosy inside and a nice place to have a drink.

Had late lunch there. Ordered haggis and some drinks. Everything was just fine. Nice place, wasn't to noisy at that time. Had tasty dish. Didn't like how was it on the plate. But in general everything was good

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
