Came in for drinks here the other night. Drinks not too expensive for a bar down on the Shore & were nicely made, well presented etc. Nice/plentiful selection of beer & gin. The bar men came across as quite snobby which was a bit off putting. The decor was lovely, with the exception of a wobbly table! It was too... More

Hi pandorabox73, Thanks for visiting and taking the time to leave a review. Sorry to hear that the bar staff came across as snobby, I'm sure that wasn't their intention. I'm not sure when you arrived but we don't tend to dim the lights until about 6pm and then again about 9pm. I'm glad that you found a good selection... More

On a cold February Friday when you're cold and starving, the Leith Beer Company's pub grub is just what the doctor ordered. We shared a platter of nachos to start with that just about left room for a macaroni cheese for one and lasagne for the other. No matter what you have, treat yourself to a side order of seasoned...

Barman poured short measures in 2 pints of peroni , on separate trips to bar . Cook/bar person stood at side door (with it open ) on a cold evening, smoking, both the smoke and cold came streaming in .

Hi sparky19542015, Thank you for visiting and taking the time to leave us a review. I'm sorry that you didn't have a great experience with us. I'm sure if you had asked the barman to top your pint up he would have done so. Strange that you went back to get a second one and said nothing on your return... More

Spent New Year's eve here with 10 friends who were visiting Edinburgh. Took a risk at not spending Hogmanay in the centre of Edinburgh but rather ventured to Leith. No regrets as the service and welcome here was fantastic and the band 'the GTs' provided fantastic entertainment for hours and hours - great job. Would definitely go back. Speedy and... More

My wife and myself had two nights in Edinburgh, on the 29th & 30th December, and stumbled across this place on our first night and had wonderful food and friendly and helpful service, unfortunately didn't get the guys name, but had dreadlocks and was extremely welcoming. On the second night, decided to eat here again and was served by Kerry,... More

Enjoyed a decent steak (would have been perfect without the gristle!) and our lovely waitress even let me taste several reds before choosing one to my liking. Service was quick and cheerful and prices very reasonable.
