Great venue. Been twice for hen do's and neither time failed to deliver. Buzzing and a great party atmosphere.

Always wanted to pop in, and came at what I'm guessing is the busiest time of year! A pretty fun vibe, good tunes late into the night. Lots of seating, lots of people. Food trucks were quite pricy, but food on offer was very convenient...More

I came for my friend's hen do, and we had a good meal, fun cocktail masterclass, and then karaoke session. We were well looked after, and everyone had a great night. It's good that so many activities are hosted within one venue.

My friend's hen do was here in July 2017. Fantastic, great value for money venue for a hen! We had dinner, cocktail class, karaoke and then dancing in the courtyard. We didn't have to leave the venue for any reason. Everyone was well catered to...More

A great pit stop on the Stag weekend. A friendly bat with music and a bustling atmosphere. Service was quick.

A lively festival experience: GREAT comedy. However, when ordering pre comedy drinks, the staff member took about ten minutes (no exaggeration) to find the (apparently) last bottle of red wine in the massive pub. When she did find it, she didn't know how to open...More

One of the best outdoor bars in Edinburgh. When it's busy it's really busy but is an amazing atmosphere. Would recommend cleaning the lines on the draft taps slightly more often though as had a slightly stale beer when I was last there.More

This pub transforms itself into a hugely lively venue during the Fringe Festival. We saw Jayne Godley here and enjoyed her excoriating take on modern life. The pub is hugely busy, offers lots of different food and has some interesting beers. Well worth descending into...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
