The Mercat, 28 West Maitland Street, EH12 5DX, Edinburgh

I like this place. It looks very plain from the front but it's much nicer when you get inside, I especially like the downstairs part.

I think it was recently refurbished too.

During the festival, The Mercat is a venue which provides free comedy - definitely recommended for a free night of comedy and a couple of chilled drinks.

The food is also good. I've been a couple of times and both times I have had the haggis (boring, but it's really nice and the starter portion is very generous).

I've heard the burgers are good too and also the macaroni cheese went down very well with my friend.

All at quite a reasonable price and the staff are very friendly.

I'd definitely recommend The Mercat if you are in the area and looking for good pub food, at a cheap price and pleasant surroundings.

Excellent bar and restaurant - efficient, friendly management and staff, good food and reasonable prices. Well worth a visit or two (or six!).
