“My husband & I visited here to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary whilst on a trip to Edinburgh.
The restaurant was very busy when we arrived but we were advised a table would soon be available.
Once seated, the staff were very attentive and friendly but did not rush us.
The food was excellent – we had a starter of haggis, neeps & tatties, followed by the beef casserole which was very tender. The waitress was very good at topping up our water throughout our meal.”
