Excellent lunch - no need to go looking in Edinburgh with food as good as this on the doorstep.

haven't been in for a long time: just today had lunch with my husband. Really excellent! Chicken soup - just the right quantity and real home made flavour. My senior citizen's) chicken could not be faulted for presentation and quality; my husband's brie and bacon ciabatta was perfect (even managed the crispy bacon as requested!). We'll be back!
