The staff at Marcos Pool Hall were wonderful and the Pizza was outstanding. It's a beautiful establishment a short walk from the Town Centre. The Ground level houses the bar, restaurant and a pool table. The Lower level is home to a large pool hall...More

They call themselves a pool and pizza bar but they know nothing about pool and the pizzas are horrendous. You have to trek upstairs to the bar and then go back when your pizza is ready to collect as they don’t bring them to you....More

A hidden gem in the centre of Edinburgh. A nice place to eat a generous pizza and listen to some great music. Nice courteous service too.

Five of us had a great few hours enjoying cocktails and beer while playing pool. With about 15 large pool tables we had no waiting to get signed up. Pool tables are downstairs and bar is upstairs. Was a great time!
