The pies were okay for the price. But the owner was pretty rude to a group of girls who were having trouble ordering. Would recommend getting them to take away.

This place is very good with lots of options for fillings. The guy at the counter is quick and friendly. We got the macaroni and cheese pie, feta and other cheeses pie, and mozzarella basil pie.

We ordered six pies to take away and everyone enjoyed them. The prices are incredibly reasonable and I would not hesitate to recommend this place to others.

Piemaker offer pies and sausage rolls baked with artesan care, friendly service and a great opening schedule. I have been hundreds of times, tried everything on offer. Sometimes some of the experiments they do don't turn out great, but you have to try new things...More

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
