Hi, Judy. Unfortunately I think you may have reviewed the wrong business. Burgers are our specialty here (we don't serve roast chicken or fish and chips). Please do come and visit us though if you are ever in Edinburgh! Abi Manager

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
play. This is the city’s central business district
with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
