We went into this pub at the begining of our hen night april 2008, it was busy but not packed, we got drinks and went down stairs where there was a few people and another hen and stag party taking place. we had a few drinks and strawbery test tubes at 1 each, average pices if u are used to drinking near london as we are, a good night all round

Always used to take on the uni pub quiz at teviot but needed somewhere to challenge me during the holidays and the Frankies tuesday quiz was it! kicks off at 10 with a free buffet.

Haven't won any of the good prizes yet but they don't do miracles there!

Make it your regular mental challange!

meathead bouncers who will exit you for nothing , overpriced drinks - packed with neds who like to chuck drinks from the balcony on occasion . The staff are friendly enough though but the food is bland and tasteless . Better with finnegans wake round the corner for music/drink and for food head to greyfriars .

Brilliant pub! Friendliest atmosphere I've ever felt in a city centre pub, never had any problems with the staff, food, drink or the prices. Their Rocky Horror nights are brilliant with a group of actors singing etc on the bar! They looked and sounded amazing, only bad point was that there weren't many of the crowd in costume but apart from that excellent night. I'll definitely be back during the next Edinburgh Fringe Festival

Went into 'Frankies' the other night to meet some mates after work - nightmare. The staff were way too cool to talk to anyone (my arse), drinks were way overpriced and there was some idiot on a microphone trying to 'big up the party' or whatever he was on about. he made the atmosphere false and more dead that it was already. I'll be passing the word not to go in. rubbish.

Out of all the pubs ive started visiting this semester Frankies, for me, is quickly becoming one of this years best student watering holes!With a great atmosphere and something different on everynight of the week it never gets old and with 40%off on a monday, whos complaining!the beers maybe not the best in town but the staff are friendly there's always some good tunes playing in the background.well worth poping in on.

I went here with my boyfriend for food and didn't like the taste of mine much so swapped it with his. Short while later on he was sick in the street and rushing to the loo. Don't think we will be back - not for food anyways.

The full moon show in frankensteins is definately something everyone should see because its a lot of fun, but the bar staff are TERRIBLE! ive never seen bigger heads on pints and they arent at all friendly. furthermore £3.25 for a vodka and coke is stretching it a bit.

Me and my hubby visited Frankensteins for the first time on Friday night. We loved it. I really like the idea of being able to get a seat in a less crowded area, without people pushing you.The music was really good, and the atmosphere was fab. Liked the special effect moments!!! It has to be seen.

Come on guys - Frankenstein's has one purpose - to be a cheesy place to go and have a bit of banter. All you people who recommend going to the villager wouldn't enjoy a place like frankenstein's anyway, so why bother. The rest of us, who are up for a laugh, a bit of a giggle and some class tunes will love it. I would advise you stick to your poncey villager and stop complaining about places you wouldn't like anyway.

Me and a couple of mates won the Frankenstein pub quiz a couple of weeks ago on our first try. Was a good night out. We got signed up for discount cards just say you're a student and you'll get 20% off. The quiz was a bit hard but our useless knowledge saw us through! Free to enter free food (Sandwhiches) and the free beers (for the winners) thats only if you're as smart as me and my mates, which isn't too difficult!

....but I had SO MUCH FUN in here at the weekend. The DJ was awesome, and I spent most of the evening drinking cocktails and dancing my ass off! So much fun, think I was actually scared when the monster came down, nearly pee'd my pants when the pyros went off. Brilliant - highly recommended. Cheers to everyone for a great night.

Well this was an eye opener for me.I walked into the pub yesterday( Thursday 18th may) at 11-10am.I asked for a pint of Guinness and was told by a very unfreindly barman that he could not serve me any drinks on draught until all the pipes were cleaned.I said why didnt you clean them 10-30am or even last night after you have finished the shift.He just shrugged his shoulders.
So take my advice people give this one a miss!

Had a great Saturday watching the cup finals in here. The downstairs bar is really cool and showed both games on plasmas, with sound for the Scottish game. The staff were great and kept everyone from getting too overexcited without being fascists like some places (3 sisters!!). Even the doorstaff had a laugh with us when they started. I've found the World cup venue for me I think!

Expecting some tacky boozer, and a hole in the wallet the size of 'le monde', our motley crew were not far off walking away with a small fortune after giving frankies the long awaited visit it most definitely deserved. Their crack the safe game alongside the £1.75drinks promos& quality DJ make a Thursday night there well worth droppin in on. The quick solution to student debt!

Not one to usually frequent a place that promotes cheesy type meatmarket places, I loved my night out at Frankensteins. All of my pre-conceived perceptions have been shattered and I would recommend it as a friendly and lively choice. Lovely food, lovely cocktails and the staff were great. A little over priced, but I asked for a student discount card and enjoyed discounts all night. I didn't mind the prices as I found the standards to be good and I like that in a pub.
Like Iced Tea - don't knock it till you've tried it, I say!

i'm a sucker for themed bars, and the interior of this one is pretty cool, but i can't help thinking they're not making the most of this place.. it's always pretty empty when i go there, despite this the staff are a bit slow off the mark to serve you.... the food is ok.

I am chinese. I went in with my indian friend at around 11 AM and the pub was quite empty. We stood in front of the bar for 3 mins. The staff just walked pass and look at us and then talked to other customers. We then didn't borther to order any food and left the pub. May be they think Asian people don't know what Frankenstein is!

Go during the day for lunch or dinner, the food is really good and not too expensive and the staff are really nice and friendly! They do SnapFax discount too. It's too busy at night but if you go early evening, you can get 2 for 1 pitchers and move on somnewhere else later!

For a good night out, what you want is cheesy tunes, beer and the opposite sex - Frankenstein has it all! Okay it's an arse to get served and the beer's dear but neck them back, get dancing and get stuck in!

I have been to this bar twice, once by choice and once at a staff night out. I can think of nothing, and I mean nothing to recommend this bar to anyone. The food is terrible, the drinks are overpriced, the layout is confused and sprawling. Avoid, avoid, avoid. In fact, for a nice chilled night out stop off at The Villager a little further up the street.

As an employee of this establishment, i am paid to enter this dark hole and still find little reason to stay or return. i gave a rating of one for value because it really provides if you're looking for a tacky, (VERY) overpriced, bad-humoured watering hole.

Theme bar taken to the limit, resulting in bland / cheese experience. I find it too sprawling with bad layout and overcrowded bars.
