Excellent food and service. Very quiet but to be expected in the current situation. Hopefully your business will grow again and folks can enjoy a meal out while staying safe.

It was maybe a bit dark inside. The service was very prompt. Food was great.

Great staff, quick service, lovely decor - I actually visited last summer, and my God, you lot haven't half decreased the portions, quality and upped the prices since then... The falafel was wet and stodgy, didn't seem remotely homemade. To line the bowl with spinach leaves doesn't miraculously make your halloumi fries into a bigger portion. The chicken burger was pitiful, small and sad looking - you used to have a portion of coleslaw on the side as part of the price, but now you want an extra £3.50 (whaaaat??) for what is essentially just cabbage and mayo? Safe to say, having finished our mains, I was still hungry and ordered the cheesecake - only what I got was broken digestive biscuit with cream, toffee and shaved banana...? Nowhere on the menu does it say that the cheesecake is deconstructed, so it's a rather horrible surprise to have placed in front of you. Your staff were lovely so we ate all of our food without complaint - having been a waitress myself, there was no chance I was about to tear into them during the current crisis when they're just trying to get by. But there's absolutely no way we'd return or recommend your establishment. Get back to how you used to be, you're really letting yourselves down if you carry on like this.

Love this place. It’s a shame it’s 300 miles from home and we only get to visit once or twice per year. Great food, great value and friendly staff.

Found this little place on an off chance whilst visiting Edinburgh, food was amazing. Deffinatley try the banoffe cheesecake if you get a chance. And the girl that served us was lovely couldn't do enough to help. Will deffinatley be revisiting here next time we visit!

Staff were great - really friendly. A cut down menu, which is understandable, however as always, the burger was amazing. More beers again please!

Excellent service by our waitress was the standout. Food good but £14 for a sandwich and fries is at the very limit of good value. Limited beer and food selection due to supplier issues also not ideal. All in all the staff make the place and they were great 😊

Staff were fantastic when we visited on Sunday, it's a nightmare right now for bars with music bans and such to deal with, but the staff were super efficient, friendly and patient. All regulations are being taken care of and they really did a fantastic job!

The food, drinks and staff were lovely and the pub itself it’s very cute and well decorated! It’s just a shame it’s not busier and has a more lively atmosphere because the place is lovely!
