The Huxley, Edinburgh.

We only stayed in Edinburgh for one night but in that time we managed to visit The Huxley twice! This bar and restaurant is situated at the end of Princes Street and provides a great view of the castle if you can nab yourself a window seat! 

The first time we visited we had a drink and some food. I opted for the classic grilled burger which came with cheese, iceberg lettuce, gherkins and Huxley burger sauce. It was one of the best burgers I've had, albeit a bit messy, and the chips were perfect too. Toby opted for the BBQ beef briskett sandwich which came filled with crispy onions, black pudding and montery jack cheese.  Both meals came in cool basket trays as you can see below which gave it almost an American diner feel. 

We decided to come back the following day after battling the hustle and bustle of shopping to have a relaxing drink in the bar. I think what I loved the most about this bar was the quirky decor inside. They have managed to create a cosy, welcoming feel with comfy sofa's and lots cushions in little alcoves whilst combining this with a predominantly industrial style decor. My favourite parts of the decor were the the light fittings which used glass bottles for light bulbs attached to intricate, raw pipe designs, the array of different seats from tweed to cow hide and of course the gallery walls filled with fun cartoons of dogs and what I presume are the owners own guide dogs. 

I would highly recommend this bar if you are in Edinburgh. It was one of the best we visited.. and we visited a lot! 

What do you think?
