First beer in a proper pub since Jan 2020! Sat outside and were hit with a deluge of rain. Staff were great at sorting us out under cover, getting the drinks and then a patio heater! Very enjoyable overall, and the beer was great! 👍👍

Ps didn’t have food, but the app wouldn’t let me post this if I didn’t click something 🤷‍♂️

Nothing special just ok. The weather was poor but I think it’s just the way it is. Service professional but no extra oomph .

Terrible service, our server came to us once and never even asked if we were ordering food. Had to keep trying to grab staffs attention. Felt like we were being ignored. Waste of money & not equipped enough for Scottish weather in their outdoor area.

My sister & I had a lovely time yesterday in the Huxley. We had a super lunch & mocktails whilst sitting at the window people watching. Staff were so attentive & very well organised.

Can't wait to return!

Lovely lunch at the Huxley yesterday. Chilled atmosphere, very tasty food and attentive friendly staff. Covid safety measures in place made us both feel safe while inside. 100% recommend!

Probably due to current restrictions but was absolutely freezing inside. Mocktail choice not available and took almost an hour from when we arrived before main course arrived. Slightly disappointing altogether.

With current Covid guidelines in place door had to be open for throughway/ventilation. We were seated right next to the door so was a bit chilly at times but not so cold we needed to move. Food was good and our servers were very accommodating. Deposit was not taken off of bill though and we had to advise of this. Have been told this will be refunded to my account - nothing yet but is a bank holiday weekend so will give it another couple of days.

It was the first day opening after lockdown and we were in at 2.00pm so it was quiet but still a pleasant atmosphere. Staff were friendly and the food was good. The Huxley is in a good central location in Edinburgh.

Had the nicest table - on the side away from the crowd so there was no coming and going, only us, felt like we are VIP. Amazing place. I normally go to Cold town house but as was fully booked I was recommeded this venue instead. How lucky! Now this place would be my number one.

I’ve been going to The Huxley for years and have always enjoyed it but the food was below par. The burger was pink it didn’t taste cooked properly am sure it was and I certainly didn’t have any ill effect from it but it wasn’t a nice taste. My friend left some of her dinner as well.
The ambience was quiet but to be expected. Staff were all very nice and service quick
I will return but avoid the burger !

Expected the food to be better after reading review. Best part about the fish and chips was the chips. The fish was very wet almost as if cooked from frozen. The staff were extremely friendly and polite
