Came in from the rain to this lovely find for lunch. The crayfish and prawn Marie salad off the lunch menu coupled with white wine was lip smacking good! Sat by the window watching the word go by, lovely atmosphere and staff. Would recommend!

Exceptional service from Jenny and Ashley. Decor is comfy, and in a building built in 1780, located in what was historically the red light district, being only a couple of blocks from Princes Street. Went out of their way to provide me a gluten free...More

New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
