About the Pub
  Very large bar with a small dance floor. This is a very busy place to be on most nights especially if you fancy having some exercise! !

Awful management!! Rubish food
I visited this pub on a hen weekend to Edinburgh and I have never experienced service like it! The pub was empty and the bar man made no effort to hid his hangover joking with us not to make too much noise as his head was burstin. When ordering our drinks the bar man was reluctant to go down to the store room for the angus dourie bitter required for some long vodkas and asked if we could changed our order!! We then ordered food all on the 1 order and everything arrived over 30mins later and at different times either burnt or under cooked, some did not arrive at all! When we asked for the manager the scruffy hangover bar man arrived and was rude and at no point offered an apology. He said they where understaffed even though we where the only 12 people in the bar! He then went into hiding leaving a young girl to deal with our complaint and refused at first to offer refunds for the food that was burnt! The girl eventually gave us the refund while the manger remained in hiding! A simple apology would have sorted this issue but instead I will never be entering any of the Edward chains and I strongly recommend you stay clear of the Edinburgh branch!

As the other reviwers state - it's great for chav and ned spotting or a fight. Watch your bag - i know a few folk whose bags have disappeared in here.
The food at lunchtime is very mediocre. Avoid unless you're a teenage chav.

Bloomin' Marvelous!
Nice friendly atmosphere! Doorstaff exceptionally good and welcoming. Although the manager could do wi doin some work once in a while instead of standing at bar drinkin' a pint tryin' to look important!! Ian, get a life! Oh and stop pullin' yr trousers up to yr arm pits! The bar staff can be quite entertaining at times

Pure dead brilliant eh
The thing aboot Edward's is - its near to everything you need for a brilliant night oot - McDonald;s, Revolution, Subway (the nightclub that is) no tae mention the wee chippy on rose street. And theres plenty o' parking spaces to fit a wee modified corsa in. I totally disagree that its full of Chavs because everytime I go the d*mn doorstaff make me take ma Burberry cap off.

Doorstaff have bad attitudes
Was in Edwards at the weekend and doorstaff were very unfriendy. (male and female) I know they have a job to do but wont be going back until the doorstaff have changed. The only friendly staff were the bar staff

The place is pretty much full of neds and chavs. The bouncers walk about acting all hard and are quite off-putting. On Saturday, my friend was speaking into her mobile minding her own business and one of them accused her of falling asleep! As respectible well dressed 32 year olds being being sked to leave when we questioned why, was well out of order. Most definitely wont be back!

Great night, no scum.
This place has changed. There is a new manager who is hell bent in keeping out neds, and it's working. I was there Friday. The place was packed. Great night, great service nedless. Keep up the good work.

If you fancy a fight....
...then Edwards is the place for you. This is where the Edinburgh Chav's hang out, and when they're not re-arranging their Kappa tracksuits and Burberry baseball caps, they're getting ready for a fight. Wouldn't go back if you paid me!

Good pub, good music, wide variety of drinks. I've never been when it's quiet which makes me suspect that it never is.

Edwards is great the entire atmostphere is. I'm there every Saturday without a doubt. My only drawback is that the same music is played every week, we need some classics too you know!! You're getting there with the Dolly Parton though, the origional is better!
