Went for a quick lunch.... or what should have been. Ordered a Ban Mi (apologies of the spellings incorrect) and a Bang Bang Noodle Salad, not the most difficult things to cook. So why then did it take 45 minutes to come when the place...More

Popped into treacle for a quick relaxing pint and a nibble. Girl that served me was very pleasant, I ordered a pint of premium lager which was quite flat and very expensive (£5)compared to other bars locally. I also ordered sweet potato fries, the waitress...More

A nice little bar/cafe. We did not eat but the food being brought out looked of a high standard, Nice bar staff looked after us well. A good location off the beaten track but close for pre-show drinks for the Playhouse of Stand comedy club

Broughton & Calton
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
found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything
but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street;
even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and
art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The

Sometimes you just need to let a bar be what it wants to be. To some, Treacle is a great cocktail bar – home to some of the cities best bartenders, winning a handful of awards along the way……to others it’s a great place to go for food, a weekend pre-club venue or a mid-week place to meet up with friends (or that girl/guy you met last weekend). We hang out with the breakfast crowd seven days a week from 10am and we keep going through lunch and dinner until 10pm – when the lucky chefs get to go home and the even luckier bartenders get to fire out cocktails, craft beers and ciders until 1am. Whatever your reason for going to Treacle – bring it on
