    My experience was once again very good. I appreciated the phone call in advance warning me about the power cut and offering an alternative venue, but I was not eating with yourselves. Otherwise my only slight issue was that the table service was not as efficient and prompt as it usually is. A nice evening though and nothing that would stop me coming back again.

    Hello, thank you so much for the review. We really appreciate your understanding when it came to a power cut to the venue, and we’re so glad to hear you’ll be joining us again soon!

    It was myself, my wife and our 1 year old eating at The Queens Arms and we had a great time! The staff were so nice to our little one and even got a toy for her to play with. The food was also brilliant.

    The beef was too rare, they said medium but it was way too red for one of our party. The moretti was flat, as not served in the right glasses. An alternative was offered at no extra cost. The booth which is lovely is not adequate for 4 people. Sorry for the low score, the food was nice as was the service.
    The Queens Arms - EdinburghResponded on 5 April 2024
    Hi Doniv, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I’m sorry that your experience with us was anything less than perfect and that the quality of our product did not meet expectations, I have passed this on to our teams in the kitchen and bar. If you have any suggestions of what you would like to see in our venue going forward please feel free to reach out to me at oliwer.nylander@signaturepubs.co.uk and I can use this to try and improve our offer going forward.

    The Sunday roast is beef. There is no other choice of meat:
    The Queens Arms - EdinburghResponded on 3 April 2024
    Thanks for leaving us a review. I understand you were disappointed by the lack of choices of meat for our roast. We do only serve the one cut on Sundays currently as we believe it's the best we've ever done so it helps us maintain quality and streamlines service and offering a bit. We don't want to put any options on that we aren't entirely proud of. If you have any suggestions what you would like to see in the venue or any other feedback, please do reach out to me on oliwer.nylander@signaturepubs.co.uk and I can use this to try and improve our offer going forward.

    DON’T BOTHER. Steak & chips was awful. Tough inedible steak & old chips. Onion rings were great but I didn’t order for the onion rings. The atmosphere with tacky plastic flowers & odd decorations was lost on us. Reminded us of the Rainforest Cafe. Menu lacked luster & was incredible boring. Just like every other Pub in Scotland I’m afraid. Not worth the 3 week ahead reservation.

    Hi Clarissa, thanks for your feedback. I’m disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your time with us; we wish we had been made aware of the issues with your food when we checked back on your table so that we could have resolved these problems at the time. We pride ourselves on our traditional Scottish food offerings, though I do regret to hear you felt our choices weren’t varied enough and we will be sure to take your feedback onboard. We’d love to have you back and show you how great we can be, if you could email us at oliwer.nylander@signaturepubs.co.uk so we can make this right. Thank you again for the feedback, take care!
