The Standing Order

62-66 George Street, Edinburgh EH2 2LR

sunny 7 °C

On our recent weekend city break to Edinburgh, we thought it'd be a real shame to lose momentum on our search. This was our third choice of pub for the day as the first choice was weird, and our second had been shut-down for what looked like decades! It's a beautiful old building that barely resembles a pub from the outside, on George Street in the guts of Edinburgh. It reminded me at first glance of The Establishment in George Street, Sydney. It's a grand old place and kind of feels like a casino a bit, in that there's a massive open room with tables everywhere, and a bar on the side; the only difference from a casino is that the tables are for drinking on, not gambling.

Value: 10 - a full roast dinner plus a pint of your choice (I went with Guinness) or glass of wine for just 7 quid = flawlessly amazing! Bring it on.
Quality: 7 - nothing to call home about but very nice.
Atmosphere: 6 - like I mentioned above, it's kind of like a casino in that it's a massive room. The ceilings are high which make the place feel empty even when there's hundreds of people there. Unfortunately we couldn't snag the best table (as it was packed) so were tucked away a little near a corner. There was football on so a decent enough vibe and a thousand screens.
Service: 7 - nothing to scream about but given the amount of people there we were happy to get the food in the time we did, and no 'special' East-European muppets serving.

Would we go back? If it was in London, we'd be back every Sunday!
