Edinburgh’s medieval Old Town is renowned for its Castle, Palace, cobbled wynds and dozens of old pubs where our celebrated philosophers and poets used to socialise over past few hundred years. If you are looking for hearty, homely food with your pint, The Royal McGregor is the place to eat and drink. The majestic name aptly reflects its address on the Royal Mile, (former 16th century grain store), and owner, James McGregor.

This is a cosy Howff *,  a country Inn in the city - neat rows of tables, bar stools and mezzanine dining area. The menu focuses on traditional Scottish dishes – hearty soups, fish and chips, steak pie, and haggis. The bar serves speciality malt whiskies, Scottish brew beers and great value wines.  Whisky tasting, private dining and special events also available.

* Howff: noun, Scottish: abode, familiar haunt, public house (origin 16th century)
