Stopped in here for the steak pie and the raspberry turnover. Excellent! Flaky crust, hot meat, hit the spot right away. Conveniently located across the street from our hotel. We will definitely return the next time we are in town.

You get what you pay for. Great for a take away or if you need a snack. Mac and cheese pie was fun. Little shop that offers both sweet and savoury.

I'll start by saying I am not a fan of meat pies, but since I'm visiting Scotland it somehow seemed necessary to give a proper one a try. I was pleasantly surprised that I throughly enjoyed the Scottish beef pie. Made a believer out of...More

Several of our group made several stops here. Very small place with not much seating, but the pies are wonderful. We tried several different meat pies and loved them. Great quick lunch! Will definitely come back.

It's a small place with not comfortable chairs. If you want to try the traditional Scottish sneak, it's not bad, also it's cheap. I had a mince pie with smashed potatoes and it was better then in others places.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
