Had Sunday lunch on 9th September and it was delicious. We were met by the manager at the door and taken to our table in the main restaurant which was lovely. We were seated near the nice warm fire and given a moment to choose from the menu, a waiter brought us a jug of water and we ordered the roast beef Sunday roast dinner, it came with a selection of roast and steamed vegetables, a large Yorkshire pudding, horseradish cream and a pot of gravy. I followed up with the sticky toffee pudding and ice cream. The staff were friendly and attentive. We will definitely be returning on our next city break in Edinburgh.

On a positive note the Lodge is a lovely place - but then it's unchanged from Sasso, the previous restaurant.

The starters were all lovely with a special mention for the Haggis Scotch Egg which was very good. The Ham Hock Terrine was tasty but should have been served with bread or oatcakes or something I think - a personal view only.

Main courses however were a mixed bag. The roast of the day (beef) was tough and unevenly cooked to the point that I couldn't really cut some of it with the knife provided. The roast potatoes and heritage carrots were lovely though. The Chicken Kiev was nice if a little dry and strangely paired with an admittedly tasty potato salad. The rump steak was a little tough too. The main thing overall is a wee bit of a lack of attention to detail - this was pretty much displayed by us having to ask for chips with the kids meals - the waiter hadn't brought them with their Mac'n'Cheese and had to be "told" that they came with the pasta.

The young chap who was serving us in the main lacked training too I think rather than being "bad" at his job. Whilst I had comments on pretty much everything served to us at no time was I asked. This is a training and experience thing though and I don't want to be overly critical.

So long story short version is must try harder really.
