Been here a few times. Food has always been good. The cocktails are excellent. Service is always good too. Prices are standard for this area of town. Worth a visit for some cocktails

Nice modern bar that has constantly kept a high standard of bar food, cocktails and customer service over many years. Just off the beaten track at west end of princes street, it's a welcome break from going round shops or dinner after work. Great range of cocktails with the friendly staff always happy to advise. Gets pretty busy so book... More

I visited here with colleagues on a business trip to Edinburgh. Party of 16. The service was exemplary. The staff were the exact level of attentive - we didn't need to chase, but they didn't hassle us. We actually ended up in a private room. They were very busy and explained they were running a kitchen feast so our food... More

Had a great night at the Hendrick's Gin cocktail masterclass. Donald made us an amazing selection of drinks which we enjoyed with some tasty bar snacks. He was enthusiastic and really knew his stuff. Will definitely be back to sample some more!

Visited for lunch with friends this afternoon. I had nachos, which were nice. My only complaint about them would be that guacamole was listed as one of the choice of toppings alongside pulled pork or chilli, when I think that guac should be included as standard! Portions were very generous. The girl who was serving us was super friendly!

Visited on a Saturday night around 9.30pm. It wasn't particularly busy and the queue at the bar was short. However, it took over 20 minutes to get served! Then the bartender got the drinks order wrong (spirits and mixers, how is it possible to mess that up?!) and had to start again. The second time I went to the bar... More

We've been several times and been a fan of the chilli chicken burger and bacon burger. While for myself the chicken burger is enjoyable especially as the staff can accommodate removing the cheese from the burger and when added with tasty chips which is a massive portion i may add, this is when it feels very worthwhile and topped off...

We booked out the private room for a hen party. The space was great for a party of 17 girls! The staff looked after us throughout the evening. Special thanks to the friendly staff including Sean the manager and Roxanne for taking drinks orders and serving food quickly and efficiently.We dined on the feast menu which was a great mix...

Cocktail bar of the year 2015 with an equally as good food offering with fantastic burgers and pizza. Friday and Saturday night we dim down the lights and the DJ turns up the music.

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
