    Came in 2020 and it was really good so returned for more and was not disappointed. Haggis pops are a personal favourite for me but all the food was superb.

    We attended the boozy cow and waw allocated a table towards the back of it. Felt that we were a little out of the way to experience any atmosphere. Place looked much better towards the front of the bar area. We ordered food and drinks, a little pricey but what you expect to pay in Edinburgh. The menu didnt have much choice but everyone still managed to find something, the chilli dirty fries and mac cheese bites were amazing. Would return but request a table at front and go a little later in the evening.

    Boozy CowResponded on 17 June 2022Steph, we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to The Boozy Cow! Thank you again for letting our team know how we did! We look forward to helping again in the future. Take care!

    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.

    Boozy CowResponded on 4 May 2022Thanks for the fab 5* review. Look forward to welcoming you back soon!

    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 CowResponded on 4 May 2022Thanks 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.

    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 🙄
