Set just a few hundred metres below Edinburgh Castle on The Royal Mile, the Deacon Brodie’s Tavern is a great place to try one of the many Scottish local ales. I went for Jack back, a pale ale @ £4.50 a pint and 3.5% Alc...More

Good beer and wine selections and the food is very good, especially the pies and fish and chips. Recommend for a great lunch while visiting the "Royal Mile."

Thought we would duck in for a quick beer and a sandwich. Not so fast. The food was slow coming out, but that left more time for people watching. Which was very entertaining.

Visited before the tattoo - small dining area upstairs but very efficient and short wait for table. Very good food and had a great view out the window to the streets below!

Good restaurant right on the royal mile. Was busy because it was festival season and waitress was not too friendly. But the food was nice and was not too expensive.

Visited after the Tattoo, great atmosphere, lots of fun people who were part of the whole occasion. Friendly staff and a good choice of ales. Only intended staying for a pint at 21:45 but finished up leaving at midnight. Will return next year. Thank you.

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
