We arrived on a cold night with no reservation and the staff were so welcoming and helpful. It’s refreshing to dine where people care. The ambience and surroundings were just fab as well. The food is delicious and the helpings generous. Recommended.

I was really excited to try this place out as a friend recommended it. The food price is ok. Food was extremely hot. I ordered the haggis dish, wellington tarts and lemon prosecco cheesecake that looks fancy. It was good enough experience but not wow!...More

You have to stop here, it such a nice friendly atmosphere. In truth I've stopped here more than once, especially during the whisky fringe. We had the Macoroni Cheese and it was really nice. And its homemade. Never had a bad visit 🙂

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
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
