    Drinks £8 for George street prices is a good £2 cheaper than most of the other bars. Fully recommend the mac and cheese with steak sandwich for food and there are many good cocktails on offer. Thoroughly enjoyed experience.

    Burgers and cocktails were tasty. But not nearly worth the money. More expensive than it use to be and also less choices than there once was. Which probably explains why it was extremely quiet on a bank holiday Monday. Overall, we enjoyed our day out, but felt cheated the 2 burgers, with some fries and a drink each cost almost £90. It's simply not justifiable in any shape or form.

    Met 2 friends for a long overdue blether. The staff were welcoming and we were seated in a cosy booth to the right. There was a big party in and the waitress let us know this and that they would try there best to offer good service. The service was excellent we were not forgotten and the appletini cocktails were so good we had 5!!! Not to mention the Prosecco! One of the party had an allergy to garlic and the waitress spoke with the kitchen and we worked out what we could eat. The food is tasty and it’s a dig in sort of place no airs and graces just good fun and able to have a conversation. We will be back.

    got placed down stairs where there were no other people, felt we were put there out the way. So we couldn’t really see what was going on or get a feel for the place. Bar men swore a lot. Took a while to be served. Cocktails weren't that good considering price. Overall disappointed.

    When we arrived the server told me ‘sorry luv, you’ve not booked’, which I had. She then found my reservation, and basically sprinted across the place to beat us to the table. We weren’t given a menu for 10 mins, and when we were it was only one between the four of us. The server didn’t seem to care at all about what we were ordering, and only came back once in the 2 hours we were there to check if we wanted refills. On top of that, when we did get our food, it was burned and dry (the chicken burgers) and the other food was *fine*. I would definitely not say it’s worth the prices, and the same for the drinks. The flooring in the area we’d sat in is corrugated metal, so when any of the stools are moved, it makes the most deafening sound. Finally, when we eventually managed to flag down someone to pay, he didn’t seem to care at all, and was incredibly short with us when we said we wanted to split the bill (it’s not like we’d only spent £20). All round, it was a pretty rubbish experience, and makes me almost annoyed I had spent so much on the meal.

    Very dramatic server who refused to serve alcohol when she seen my friend who’d had only two drinks stumbled from her chair by accident. Very judgemental when not knowing any facts at all.

    Boozy Cow - EdinburghResponded on 4 May 2022

    Thanks for leaving us a review. Unfortunately we take the licensing laws very seriously which meant if we believed your friend to be over intoxicated we wouldn't serve her alcohol. Our staff are just trying to do their job to the best of their ability and have to use their judgement when serving customers.

    Food was good. Poor service. We ordered drinks and burgers with side all together. After 10 minutes we got our side and the drinks. The burger arrived 45 minutes later after reminding our waitress. We asked for water 2 times and never got any. Wanted to order milkshakes but of course the kitchen was already closed because we got the burgers so late. Our waitress apologized when we got our burgers but never acknowledged us of any mistakes from their part. Used to be my favourite burger place but won’t be back.

    Hi Lachlan, thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We had to run a reduced menu for a while due to staffing issues but these have all been resolved now. Next time you come in there will be the full menu available!

    The food here is delicious but the service was a little disorganised. Had to go up to the bar to ask for our food order to be taken as we had been waiting for a while and the same with asking for the bill. None of the staff acknowledged us when we left. A 10% service charge is automatically applied so you would expect more attentive service and staff to come over more often.

    Place was empty but we were placed at a high table with no backs on the chairs and back to back with two big groups. the food was basic at best for £55 its obviously disappointing if you went some place in the £25 range this is the food you would expect.

    Ambiance was good in the place. No shortage of staff. The food was ok. Had the burger which was meant to have the Doritos as breadcrumbs but I’m not sure it actually did. I’d say £4.70 for a 330ml can of cider was expensive. My brother enjoyed it therefor I didn’t want to raise a question on the burger. Overall an ok experience.

    Not what I expected. Cocktails were just glasses of ice and sugar. Pretty sure I didn't order a mock tail but couldn't taste any alcohol. Food came on on trays.. Just a bad choice for us. Napkins were a roll of kitchen towel 🙄

    It wasn’t explained to us that when we ordered our burgers and the women asked if we wanted chips that they were at an additional cost. I feel like you should be telling people because if we knew this we would have only ordered two. Apart from that the food was delicious and the cocktails are excellent!

    Good atmosphere in the place and the decor is really cool. We were seated at the back and unfortunately forgotten about for quite a while so didn’t get to order for 20 mins. The food was slightly cold when it came out and the chips tasted like oven chips. However the drinks were great. I think I would return here just for drinks the next time as food is not great but the place has a nice atmosphere.
