Amazing burger. Such a good venue for lunch. Staff are brilliant and it is well priced within area. They allow dogs too which is nice. Will be back.

We had a fun and wonderful dinner at Hector's during a quick trip to Edinburgh. Christie, our waitress, was extremely helpful and welcoming.

Had a nice lunch with friends and their daughter and grandson. Food pleasant but drinks quite pricey. £23.50 for an average prosecco. Lady from London served us and she was brilliant.More

Went in for dinner and drinks. Wait staff were all great. The food? Bangers and mash was good, burgers really good and the steak and ale pie was great! Special thanks to Aston, she was fun and soooo helpful finding fun drinks.

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
