Stopped off here before going to Murrayfield and I have to say the food was excellent and service was great on what was a challenging day for the staff. Would recommend anyone coming here for breakfast or lunch

Sunday lunch was poor. I had steak pie and my partner had mussels. The gravy was to watery for my liking but the meat was very nice and tender. The mussels were tiny but the sauce was quite nice. The atmosphere within the dining area...More

Broughton & Calton
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

even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The
