Planned a nice evening with meal and wine with a friend of mine; as haven't seen each other for ages, we were eager to chat too. After reviews here, we thought the Waiting Room was a good choice, local to wonderful Morningside! How wrong! Food...More

We only lived about 100 yards from this establishment which makes it even more handy. The service is very good and the menu is good pub food. Portions are generous and the food is well cooked and well presented. We will back again.

We called in for a drink in the afternoon and it was fairly quiet. It is a nice clean place and the toilets are good. Service ok. We came back in the early evening and had nachos which were good.

My wife and I visited The Waiting Room primarily because they allowed our cocker spaniel in. The food was very good with a good choice. Very friendly staff.

Food was vile on a particularly unbusy day. The whisky sauce for the haggis bon bons was cold and the whisky hadn’t been cooked off. The mushroom tarte tatin was cold and flavourless. The side salad appeared undressed but was surprisingly edible in light of...More

A welcoming local pub situated in the heart of Morningside. Our friendly staff will serve up a varied selection of the best Scottish craft beers, or if you're not a beer person, maybe one of our mouth-watering cocktails, or something from our extensive spirit and whisky gantry. Between 11.30 am and 9.00 pm, we also serve up an extensive and reasonably priced menu of delicious home-made food, which includes our much loved burgers and sizzling fajitas; and if you're out and about early on (or need some help recovering from the night before...), we serve a hearty Scottish breakfast until 1pm (3pm weekends), and fresh coffee all day. Sports fan? The Waiting Room is the place to be for all sporting events. With 5 large TVs and a 6-foot big screen, we show all major football, rugby, golf and tennis tournaments, and our staff are always willing to accommodate requests when possible (we can have up to three different things on at one time). We look forward to seeing you soon!
