Good pub grub but nothing very special. The offers give you better value meals than the Wetherspoon type pubs around the Slug and Lettuce. Reasonably busy - not many staff on duty but they did work hard. Tables cleared quickly but not always wiped down...More

Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
