Had a great time, everyone was pleasant and provided great service. Explained social distancing and kept to the rules. My second visit in the past 9 days. My experiences have been excellent on both occasions and I look forward to many more visits in future.

Staff weren’t particularly attentive. We were sat by the bar where glass bottles were being thrown in the bin and making a huge smashing sound. Food was good and well priced and the venue is very cute.

Good bar. Not sure why the pizza and Prosecco bar shut at 10 when the bar below is open later.

Loved this place for drinks and food, we felt really safe in covid times and service was excellent.
The hanging kebabs were awesome as was the hanging dessert. I've never seen starter of sausages quite so generous & the meatballs scored another 10/10. The beer dispensers were genius! The roof garden was another level. We will definitely come back when we visit Edinburgh again!

4 of us had a table for drinks for a couple hours and decided to order some halloumi fries, and 2 lots of other types of fries and they all were plentiful and really tasty. Thought the decor was lovely and felt very comfortable and relaxed throughout. Will defo be back!

Nice place, lovely srtting and great pizza. Loved the Beer tower. Only thing that possibly let it down was the relaxed service. Im all for a nice chilled evening but possibly too relaxed for me personally. Seen the waiter twice and lacked cutlery but couldnt catch them again to get some but was only chips so survived. Lovely lovely place, staff were nice just possibly need to be a bit more formal rather than pretending we were their friends

Service was poor. Always looking for staff for drinks etc.
Food was bland - drunken chicken hanger. Not advised of not enough churros for more than one serving until after ordering.
Got it in eat out to help out scheme would not have been happy paying full price..

Great food and service. We went for the pizza and prosecco on 2nd floor. Pizzas were amazing. We had a sneek peek at the lovely rooftop garden before we left which has fabulous views of the castle. A must for our next visit.

You never know what you're going to get when you dine in Covid times.

We were met at the door, asked to register our details and temperature checked before being shown to our table.

There was plenty of space for our party of 8 and we were physically separated from the next nearest table by a screen.

The menu was short, but there was something for everyone and every pizza and burger was finished, along with two starters we ordered to share.

The own brew beers deserve a mention, because although they're not earth-shatteringly wonderful, they were perfectly enjoyable and I'd have them again. In fact I did the next night, although at a different venue; I'm a tourist, what can I say?

Followed all the Covid rules.
Very clean and great service.
The no music rule kinda spoils the atmosphere, out of the business control however. Would definitely come back.

Booked a table for prosecco and pizza assuming we would be downstairs. To much disappointment we were taken to level 1 which resembled a canteen! We had one drink and left and ate else where. Massively disappointed. Will not be recommending this place at all

Lunch at Cold Town House Pizza and Prosecco Bar was our first indoor dining experience since lockdown began. The food and drinks were very good, the ambience was also very good and the service was excellent. Importantly, the measures in place for social distancing etc. made us feel very safe and secure. Thank you!
