Great atmosphere, not too big and crowded. Lovely and attentive service. Great whiskey (of course) and a large selection. Food was brilliant and we would go again if visiting again.

The whisky flights, food and service were tremendous. David was attentive while not overbearing and very helpful. We're only in Edinburgh for 2 days before heading north, but this is a place to where we absolutely intend to return.

the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
