We went for dinner on Friday evening at 5:30pm and the place was packed and everyone sounded like they were having a great time. We walked in, found a member of staff and they quickly cleared a crowd from around a table to get us seated, delivered a bottle of water and glasses, poured for us and handed out the menu. She returned promptly to get our order for food and drinks. We both got cocktails ordered from a book's worth of choices. Took a bit of reading to decide. The food came soon after the drinks and was appetising and well presented. We had two courses ordered but eventually took a sweet to share between us. Dundee cake, St Andrews cheese and honey, different but it worked. By now it had quietened down a bit thank goodness. Enjoyed it.
We were looking to have a dinner date in the neighbourhood and found this restaurant with a lovely atmosphere. The staff was welcoming and accommodating.
The cocktail menu was super original, and offered a lot of choice. The food was excellent and very well presented. Would definitely recommend !
What a pretty pub in an off stream street.
If you're lucky get the sofa and the armchair at the back!
The Turkish coffee cocktail is amazing! Strong and sweet and if you're a coffee person you'll thank me later.
Didn't come for the food but the mackerel was really good!
I will definitely come back again!
Oh and you can bring your dog along!
Food was lovely, small menu but good choices. Excellent service from staff considering it was a busy night. The bar was especially busy, but it didn't deflect too much from the overall atmosphere.
This beautifully designed cocktail bar and restaurant has one of the most prolific cocktail lists I have ever seen! We dined as a family and we each thoroughly enjoyed our various cocktail choices. We shared small plates at the recommendation of our waiter. The staff is so helpful and kind the whole dinner. Likely the best food we had in Edinburgh. I cannot recommend this gem of a restaurant enough,
Lovey decor and staff were the first things noticed. The menu still seemed summery which was good as summer does seem to be dragging out (good thing also) and it was a bright and warm day sat by the window.
The food was good (not sure about the fries, maybe just too crunchy after eating other dry ish food - the Arancini balls) and the drinks were great.
I tried an espresso martini which was presented well and not too sweet.
The second desert / drink was almost pure alcohol with some cream - I loved it.
Will definitely be back if/when the menu changes for winter.
This is as good as pubs get. Really well-crafted cocktails and the menu puts a modern spin on traditional pub food, making it more making it more appealing to the younger crowd.
We popped in for a couple of drinks and ended up having a blast. The cocktail menu is exciting and well presented. We met a nice chap on the bar called Luke and he recommended a couple cocktails to reconnect us to our scottish roots. “The sun also rises” was my favourite by far. Very friendly atmosphere and excellent service. Thank you. We will be back to try out the food soon :)
Great bar and comfy atmosphere. Food offers wonderful and exciting parings. Perfectly seasoned.
Tasty cocktails. Nice, friendly, and helpful staff.
The cocktails and wine were fantastic. Good was superb except the arancini was devastatingly disappointing. The accompaniments in the dish were super cold and arancini not all consistent temperature. Friendly staff and really good with answering queries. Decor and vibes were really great too.
