  • Delicious pie with duck, lovely place where I feel Scotland. Staff maybe treat too serious their job and showing the table, but whatever. Food lovely.  more »
  • The Boabby is a charming old fashioned style pub with a good range of beers and pretty good pub grub. WHen we were in as a lunch group the staff were very welcoming and efficient.  more »

  • A bit of Edinburgh nostalgia here at this bar and Restaurant. Plenty to choose from the menu and at reasonable price. My wife had Garlic Chicken and I had Rib eye Steak and both were very delicious. All kinds of drinks available, cask ales, lagers and spirits and coffee if you want. Very professional staff and helpful. Well worth a visit.
  • Veggie approved! I was looking all over Edinburgh for a vegetarian Sunday roast. I could not believe how difficult that turned out to be! Luckily for me Greyfriars Bobby’s came through. They had a delicious nut roast bursting with flavor, roast carrots, parsnips, potatoes, crispy kale and a Yorkshire pudding. The entire meal was spectacular, my only critique would be the gravy was a little bland. I’d recommend adding a little red wine to give it that extra twist. My dad has his haggis (not pictured) and enjoyed that as well. The desserts were also good, but I think the main dishes were the best. I LOVED the elderflower cider and am hoping I can find it in a shop back in Oxford. It was very fruity and the elderflower was very strong. Overall a great meal and a nice location. I was glad to see that they had several interesting vegetarian (and I think one vegan) dishes. All too often veggie fare is typically a veggie burger or a salad, so it was nice to see some variety, and more importantly a good meal. I definitely recommend this place. It’s pretty regularly priced in my opinion, definitely not as cheap as Spoons but it’s not horribly expensive either. Thumbs up from me.
