Our beautifully refurbished Gastropub, not far from Edinburgh city centre, serves delicious fresh food daily with a great selection of wines and local beers.

In the warmer months enjoy Al Fresco dining in our beer garden with outdoor fire-pit and Peroni Bar and when the winter nights set in join us in the bar around the fire or in the dining room with indoor fire-pit.
