Michael Neave never disappoints. This time round three of us dined there on Friday evening at a slightly later time. From start to finish the service was superb. Ditto the food and wine. Thank you for a relaxing and enjoyable time. We'll be back.

Visited for lunch which was a set menu and acceptable to all four of us. The wine prices bump up the bill considerably but you are in a city........

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
