We went here a couple of times on our trip to Edinburgh. It''s alternative, good music (in my opinion), good selection of beer and they do a vegan pizza! Reasonably priced and friendly staff. A very good pit stop on your travels!

Large choice of Brewdog beers, waiters very kind and helpful. We ordered 2 pizza which, even if we waited for it quite a long time for it, were very tasteful.

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
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
