This restaurant is located near the memorial of Grayfriar's Bobby Memorial. The food was great from burgers to haggis and nips. Service was also very good. We waited only a few minutes as we enjoyed the lager.

Having looked on-line to find dog friendly places in Edinburgh, it came up with Greyfriars Bobby's bar - you would naturally assume a pub that refers to a stoic wee doggy WOULD be dog friendly! So we headed there and although it was busy, we...More

We were drawn to this pub due to its proximity to our hotel (Du Vin) and the legions of tourists that took pictures out front. There is a heartwarming story of a loyal dog. You should discover that on your own. Inside, we were surprised...More

No reservations but not impossible to get a table.The standard of cooking is a little uneven but generally very good. It's well worth a visit and a toast to Bobby who sits on the corner.

We decided to pop in after visiting Bobby's Grave in the nearby Kirk. It was very pleasant and the food was very good along with the Friendly Hostess.

We happened upon a pub that was outside the statue of Greyfriars Bobby. The food was wonderful, and very filling, and so was the pints of beer! Our only complaint was the squeaky bathroom door that needed a bit of oil!

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
