    Gorgeous roast beef and mouth watering hot chocolate. The small stage in the back is a Sunday treat when they have live music.

    S**t service - took an hour and half for food to arrive. They forgot next table's order. Never coming here again

    Nice pub with reasonably trendy decor and a nice standard of clientele. Service is ok sometimes slow. However it is always busy and with a good buzz about it practically every night of the week

    Great pub. Love their brunch and the atmosphere. Good to spend an evening playing board games with a glass of wine.

    Went on a Saturday night, during live music. Wouldn't recommend for food as it was average and the service (whilst great) took ages! But the atmosphere was great.

    A small stage at the back means you can enjoy a free gig as you while away those harsh winter nights. They also do great fish and chips and a winning hot chocolate for those post-Portobello pit-stops. Read more

    Very nice pub to chill out. Room in the back is great for big groups and they also have live music regularly. Sunday lunch/brunch menu is quite nice.

    Don't wait at the corner of the main bar, the staff ignore you. They actually refuse to move out of their zones! Motherfuckers are unmovable on this.

    Far too many reserved tables at the weekend, impossible to just pop in for a quick drink and get a seat!

    After a chequered history the Elgin has finally turned into the local I always wanted. real ale, gin palace, decent food and live acoustic music on a Sunday afternoon.

    We call this the murder pub because someone was murdered here apparently. It's actually really lovely though
