No. Just no. They will take ages to get back to you about anything. Repairs take more like a month to two months.The "repairs" we have had so far involve duct tape or them hoping we'll forget to pursue repair. They just don't care and it shows. The wonk I'm dealing with says the fault is the owner's but ultimately my experience is with the letting agent, not the owner. If the owner does not get back then the agents must act. It's clear that they intend to do the bare minimum. Do not rent with them. Don't rent with a letting agency full stop if you can possibly avoid it. And yes, I plan to pursue a complaint.

Warm and welcoming refurb of an ancient Borders pub. Nice beer and the
soup was lovely. Live music venue with a recording studio and venue
hire. I believe the hotel facility will be reopening soon as well.
Lovely views of the surrounding valley and the place is family friendly.
The things in the front window looked enchanting. My two girls were dying to find out what they tasted like. It was very busy on Sunday afternoon in the run up to Christmas but we patiently waited 10 minutes for a table. We were seated and then left to languish while wait staff stood milling around at the front of the cafe. Staff walked past us many times but never asked us if we would like to order. The children grew antsy and after 15 minutes at the table, plus the 10 waiting for a table, we just left. The kids were sad but we had much better service at The Elephant House in George The IVth Bridge. I would like to say the pastries are worth it but we will probably never know. Poor.

Good. Quite good. Not the best I have ever had. That goes to Pinkberry which is the holy grail of frozen yogurt and only available in London for now. Frisky is a close second. It's smooth and creamy and tastes very nice. I tried the original and the mango. Of the two I prefer the mango. Where it could be better is the tartness. Pinkberry rules because their frozen yogurt is so nicely tart along with creamy and smooth. The perfect foil for fresh fruit. Frisky does some nice fresh fruit too but they are a little stingy with it considering the price. That said, they cut it up for you to order so it is fresh. It's nice stuff. Give Frisky a try. Meanwhile, I still dream of Pinkberry...
Love this place for being charming, reasonably-priced and tasty. Free wifi, nice filled rolls, cakes and excellent coffees and teas. PLUS it is in an interesting old building. I also like The Manna House in Easter Road but it’s often crowded and is very pricey. I find my feet take me back to Just The Ticket because it’s a welcoming place. If only they had a patio out back. Two thumbs up.
Definitely old man territory but it’s comfy and the staff are friendly. Good prices. Tends to welcome away supporters during Hibs matches at Easter Road so avoid it during those moments as they can get a little stroppy. Currently undergoing some sort of major interior overhaul so watch this space.
