We decided to pop in after visiting Bobby's Grave in the nearby Kirk. It was very pleasant and the food was very good along with the Friendly Hostess.

We happened upon a pub that was outside the statue of Greyfriars Bobby. The food was wonderful, and very filling, and so was the pints of beer! Our only complaint was the squeaky bathroom door that needed a bit of oil!

Very good location in the City Centre, this is a small, very busy pub, that has very good food. They are probably busier than they would like to be, hence the poor reviews. We ordered their specialty, homemade meat pies. It was very good, wonderful...More

Stumbled across this pub when we noticed groups of people having their photo's taken with the monument to 'Bobby' outside it. Call in have a venison pie & a pint, then have a photo rubbing Bobby's nose for luck

We stopped here with friends for a quick bite to eat and it seems we got there at just the right time as not long after we sat down it was packed! The food was perfect.

When we got to Scotland I refused to try haggis. Needless to say I was surprised at how good it was! Thank you Greyfriars for a great first experience in Scotland!

Stumbled across the pub on the night of Scotland v Wales rugby international a few weeks ago. We were glad we did, only popped in for one and ended up staying all night. The entertainment was superb. A guy on his own with a selection...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
