My friend and I have gone to the pub for lunch over a number of years but we are no longer happy with the service or the quality of the food. The friendliness and efficiency of the staff has gone and the selection of food does not seem to be as good - roast of the day for example. It was quite the norm for us to have tourists sitting next to us but now they tend to say that the place had been recommended to them by friends but they had found it sadly lacking. What happened to the tables being set out for lunch between 12-2pm in the bar.Looks like the manager wants to just have the Stag/football weekend clientele which is what we now tend to see. Very sad to see such a lovely pub change so much.

Closed up the place on a Monday night night and had a great time. The pints were perfect and we got to relax by the fire.

My friend and I spent a wonderful day shopping in Edinburgh on Saturday 30th September. Before heading home we decided to have a meal at the Abbotsford. The food was extremely disappointing and definately not worth the money. Gordon Ramsay would have a field day in this kitchen! The phrase "microwaves are us" springs to mind. When we tried to complain the manager initially avoided speaking to us by just discussing the problem with the staff. When we made him speak to us he refused to accept there was a problem.
I have never been so disgusted with a place in all my life. Do not go there!

Just spent a long weekend in Edinburgh and went in here twice - second time just to make sure I wasn't dreaming about the first!
Excellent bar staff - they looked a bit "experienced" and certainly looked like they knew the business - very professional and quick to serve people and very friendly. Also tried the food in the upstairs bar - again staff exceptionally attentive and great service in a very clean place with a lovely traditional atmosphere - attended by people of all ages. Can't wait to go back.
