'The Three Sisters' is a huge venue in the heart of Edinburgh, with a great atmosphere. I booked the 'Cheeky-chicks' hen-package for a party of 27, which took a fair bit of organising! The events staff were amazing from start-to-finish and went out their way...More

Don't be fooled by the word katsu. Literally dehydrated chicken burger with curry sauce on the side. Comes with cabbage salad which they try to pass off as a coleslaw. Ordered the haggis and cheddar fries which should have been fantastic although I'd have been...More

Didn't go here for a meal, but after a few drinks decided to have something to eat. We were both very underwhelmed with the "all day" breakfast and the ribs, small portions, lukewarm, skinny ribs, plenty of bone. Seems to cater for large parties, would...More

We've used the function room for one-off dance lessons for hen parties and birthdays. Good communication from India during booking, and the staff were very friendly and helpful on the day whenever we had questions. We would definitely use this venue again. Thanks, Rob

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
