Great place really good for families had super choice and will definitely return. Service was outstanding went the extra mile. I had a charcuterie smorgasbord to start outside in the garden area then a lovely ribeye perfectly cooked in the restaurant.

We had one night in Edinburgh to drop our daughter at Uni. We met with friends doing the same and we were celebrating our girls’ success. The entry from the hotel above was past the open kitchen door which was unpleasant - it didn’t look very clean. Choosing from the menu was difficult as many items were unavailable - but the waitress would wait for us to order rather than announcing at the start what was unavailable. Examples being no whisky syrup to accompany the haggis fritters which the waitress described would be dry without; my husband tried to order two different linguine dishes but the kitchen had run out of linguine; hand cut double cooked chips were replaced with skinny fries without us being told and despite many vegetables being on the menu - the kitchen had run out of all of them. To compensate my husband had sea bass fillets with potatoes served with chilli and ginger, sweet potato fries and further potatoes with chilli and ginger. Then the only dessert available from the menu was icecream. A disappointing experience I’m afraid
