This is a little gem of a find and so carefully tucked away in the New Town! First impressions are of a small, but homely bar, with very welcoming staff who immediately make you feel at home and relaxed.

We had a very enjoyable lunch with an excellent bowl of moules which was followed by a delicious sirloin rump steak served with excellent triple cooked potato chip wedges.

To round off the meal the cheesecake was delicious. They served excellent coffee and there was a very adequate selection of pleasant wines.

We will certainly be going back and will be recommending the Iglu to our friends.
