    A short show occasionally when the monster is lowered from the roof and animated to appropriate fx and music... The lights dimming starts it... Get to the centre of the room... Or sit on the balcony

    The ambience was intriguing and the DJ was superb playing good club/house music coupled with music videos displayed on 2 wide screens at the front!

    Best nachos portion I've ever had! Cool place, but the music was so loud I couldn't talk to the person sitting beside me!

    Great pub but prices seem to have gone up recently so be prepared to spend quite a bit of money. Jenny emma xx :-)

    Wouldn't give the advertised 30% off offer during the Edinburgh festival even though it's available on the app and I showed them.

    Not what I expected it's more a theme park style tourist attraction than period bar as the outside suggests.

    Tourist trap. Wait staff is friendly but the wait is very long - we waited an hour for our food and the restaurant was basically empty. My suggestion would be to bypass this restaurant

    Total crap. Walk down the street to any other pub. Waited over an hour for food, but then again - I think they thought I was an American tourist.

    The music is too loud and the mac and cheese is terrible. I'd be willing to give it another shot though.

    Desserts consist of nothing more than fake cream. Slow service. Over priced. (heineken = 8 quid) 80's music. Not good.

    Si te descargas la aplicación del restaurante consigues ofertas y descuentos! Hay un código QR en el baño para poder descargártelo. La comida genial y el ambiente increíble. Un 10.
