Best bar in Edinburgh made us feel very welcome and made my partner his own Birthday cocktail and give us a Birthday shoot too.
Went back next day for food and it was lovely.

Thanks

Food was okay in quality and amount of food. Social distancing well observed. Food was served on one tray between two people which was very awkward when eating. We were then charged drinks that weren’t ours so had to complain to get the refund once we noticed, refunded easily but without much an apology.

Responded on 3 October 2020

Hi Tom, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. Our food does come out on sharing trays as our sides are all made for sharing but we would have happily given you some plates if you had preferred. Please just let a server know if you pop in again. I can only apologise about the mix up with the bill, the wrong items were not intentional and i'm glad to hear you got your refund. =)

Wings were very nice and tossed in sauce, kudos to that, although they felt warm, not even close to hot as they should be, coming out of a fryer! Blue cheese dip, didnt feel the taste whatsoever, but I'm an intense blue cheese lover, so maybe too mild for my personal taste. Burgers were the disappointing part, bread was around 11 cm diameter and the overcooked, maybe even reheated patties were half the size of the bun, it took 2 bites all around the burger to reach the meat and toppings, for a £11 burger, we are getting close to Mc Donalds quality here folks, it also took less than 3 minutes to arrive to the table since the time we ordered, extremely fast, which if you are at a proper restaurant as small as the patty can be, if it is well done and dry, it would take more than 3 mins to cook. The place itself is unreal, from decor, lightning, service and looks overall. I would definitely go back just for the beers, try some cocktails on my second visit and for the good vibe of the folks at service, good job there! Maybe I was driven by the high star reviews and had very high expectations, plus being a burger lover, and misunderstood the food concept. The menu itself looks very very interesting, but the quality of the product seems very low.

Hi Roberto, Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review! I am disappointed to hear our burger wasn't up to scratch and we didn't match up to expectations! We continuously look at how we can improve our offering and are actually looking at our burger recipe currently! Hopefully next time you pop in we can change your mind on our burgers!

Nice food and drinks. No problems with the service. However as we were the first table in there and when the second table arrived and were put directly next to us, we were a born confused. No screens between the two tables and with all the tables empty we thought they could have been put else where with the current situation.

Hi Louise, Thanks for the feedback! Majority of our tables are booked online, so the chances are, it just happened to be the booking for that table that arrived next. We would have been happy to move you though if you felt uncomfortable so apologies if you did.

A brilliant and cosy setting. Warm and slightly dimmed lighting which added to the feel of the place.
The food is simple (burgers and hot dogs) but they are absolutely brilliant! Cooked fresh and taste amazing!
Oh and the cocktails are unbelievable! They will blow your head off! And not too badly priced either.

Food not great at all.

Don’t mind paying £11 for a burger (without fries) if it’s decent but it was poor quality and tasted like it was made with cheap ingredients.

Drinks were nice and the service was fine.

There was no music playing so the vibe was pretty dead.

Overall pretty disappointing, especially as other places we’d eating in Edinburgh were amazing!

I personally would not recommend.

Although we had no complaints about our food, it was pretty standard and lot a lot of flavour, our cocktails were the only thing I could actually taste. The service was ok, and the venue lacked atmosphere. If I were to visit again it would only be for drinks.

Been a few times and has been great so I cannot express my disappointment with the meal, £11.50 for a burger on its own and burger wasnt even that great extra cost for any sides and as a bonus there was no plates no cutlery and coronavirus may have impacted the experience but 12 quid to be given a burger on a tray without even a napkin, even mcdonalds has better service which is devastating given how much we loved going there, so meal the experience and the overall experience was incredible disappointing and left us in search of a new regular resteraunt to go to as we have no intention of returning to boozy cow

Cocktails were nice a good price for centre of town.

Pretty good all rounder for food and drink. The cheese fries were absolutely filth. We demolished them. Chicken wings were also great but could have done with more hot sauce. Burgers were a bit underwhelming, we had the beef fondue. Overcooked and under seasoned and the fondue came in a tiny little pot on the side.
Cocktails were good, service great and an all round good vibe.
