Great staff super friendly. Food is great with really comfy seating to sit by the fire and watch sport. Best outside beer garden in Edi, huge television and loads of seating for the rugby. Would highly recommend to anyone, young and old.

Southside & Holyrood
Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
university buildings in Southside, the sort of
neighbourhood that supports a long string of

arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
