The food was nice enough and reasonably priced, but there was zero atmosphere, we were sat right by a door to the store room where staff kept pushing past to get in and out without apologising/being polite, and the service was average.

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
