It seemed more than a pub than actually a fantastic restaurant. Food was super delicious. Never had a risotto like this before. The design through the pub/restaurant was also very... More

Visited this place for drinks a couple of times during our stay in Edinburgh as we thought it was a really nice place. We had the Rhubarb gin cocktails and the not-so old fashioned, delicious! Friendly service too!

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighbourhood Profile
Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
