Great for a bite to eat for a quick lunch. Nice choice of menu with some decent offers. Staff always attentive and friendly.

We had looked at where to eat before we visited Edinburgh and decided on Lebowskis as we really fancied something simple but good, my burger was burnt a bit and was just a bit of a let down - my partner had the Jamaican chicken burger and the bun on the bottom had disintegrated because of all of the juices,...

I was expecting more from this place...it is a standard pub. Service was good. Ordered the dude, it was really nice but pretty expensive.

Hello Amy B, Thanks for your review, nice to hear that you had good service and enjoyed your dude. We will politely disagree that we are a standard pub, our 27 very competitively priced white russians and fantastic value, massive, freshly made burgers are a testament to that. Maybe we can interest you in some of our food next time... More

Booked through 5pm.com for a Burger n Beer at £12. Place was busy (as expected on a Saturday) but we managed to get served no problem. All had a white Russian while we waited on our table. Pretty good but at over £5 each they are definitely overpriced. The staff were friendly but rushed. The food was tasty and generously... More

Hi Pauly-101, Thanks for your great review dude. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit and that our food impressed you, we will politely disagree that our famous White Russians are overpriced as they have two measures of alcohol in them and are carefully priced to offer the best value. We certainly hope to see you again... More

Went into the bar last night after a family meal for my girlfriends birthday. On arrival we were asked by a female bartender what we would like to drink. A few moments later a gentleman behind the bar came over to us and said "you will need to order separately" after asking why this was the case he claimed one... More

Meh. Went here with friends because we love quoting the movie so it only seemed appropriate to stop on for a drink. Tons of variations of white Russians but other than that there's nothing special or interesting about this place. There are far many better choices around the area if you want a drink and good atmosphere.

Hello Emma L, It is sad to hear that our atmosphere and the feel of the pub were not to you liking, thank you so much for pointing this out.

This was a regular haunt of mine for many reasons but 2 things they did so well was their burgers and their iconic 'big lebowski'( White Russian) which was made special by serving it in an old fashioned milk bottle.

Cool place but staff are awful. Went in on a fairly quiet evening for a few drinks with a couple of friends. We had planned on staying all night but left after 2 drinks.

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.
